I've been following the insanely talented improv geniuses of The Showstoppers for most of their eleven years. How do they do it? I still can't really fathom it, but I was pleased to gain a few more insights - and a new well of admiration - after chairing a post-show Q&A with them this week.

My final post-show Q&A of the year, to the stage premiere of Chasing Bono, was an absolute Irish corker! After a revealing discussion about the fine line between success and failure and the perils of fame, it ended with an impromptu song performance.
