PODCAST: Michael Portnoy

Self-described "Relational Stalinist" Michael Portnoy is on the podcast this week talking about his ludicrous interactive game installations, cutting his teeth in New York's '90s alt-comedy scene, why understanding one's body is crucial for performance, and how to effectively muddy the distinctions between theater, dance, contemporary art, and standup comedy. We're sponsored today by Anheuser-Busch's discontinued pale lager Bud Dry, the single 1994-95 season of ABC's hit teen drama "My So-Called Life", and Andrés Muschietti's forthcoming film adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 clown porn novel "It."
