In a world of increasing polarization, Kelly Leonard is working to bridge the divide and bring people together by teaching the power of improv. In this episode you will learn: 1. The importance of play, especially as we get older. 2. The power of "Yes, And" to create agreement and understanding. 3. The importance of a shared humanity that includes people who may not think or vote like we do. "The world we live in right now, no one wants to work together. It's never been this bad, in my experience. If we could just enter rooms with curiosity instead of blame, if we could enter rooms with a 'Thank You, Because' orientation, I think we have a shot." - Kelly Leonard Kelly Leonard is the Executive Director of Learning and Applied Improvisation at Second City Works. His book, “Yes, And: Lessons from The Second City” was released to critical acclaim in 2015 by HarperCollins and was praised by Michael Lewis in Vanity Fair who called it “...an excellent guide to the lessons that have bubbled up in Second City's improv workshops.” Kelly is a popular speaker on the power of improvisation to transform people's lives. He has presented at The Aspen Ideas Festival, The Code Conference, TEDx Broadway, Chicago Ideas Festival, The Stanford Graduate School of Business and for companies such as Coca Cola, Microsoft, Twitter, Memorial Sloan Kettering and DDB Worldwide. Kelly co-created an initiative with the Center for Decision Research at the Booth School at the University of Chicago, The Second Science Project, that looks at behavioral science through the lens of improvisation. He also hosts the podcast, “Getting to Yes, And,” for Second City Works and WGN radio that features interviews with academics, authors and leaders such as Brene Brown, Adam Grant, Michael Lewis, Lindy West, Ash Carter and Amy Edmondson. For over twenty years, Kelly oversaw Second City's live theatrical divisions where he helped generate original productions with such talent as Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, Seth Meyers, Steve Carell, Keegan-Michael Key, Amy Sedaris, Adam McKay and others. In 2019, Arts Alliance Illinois awarded Kelly and his wife Anne Libera with their Creative Voice Award.

Frank Murphy's friend Erik Dobell is co-hosting today's episode. Erik is a mentalist. His show, Impossibilities - Magic, Mind-Reading, and Mayhem! is in the Iris Theater at the Gatlinburg Space Needle. Get tickets at https://www.impossibilitiesshow.com Erik has a friend who pays to subscribe to pizza-making videos online. Frank prefers to watch Adam Ragusea for free on YouTube. Frank's interview with Adam Ragusea will air on East Tennessee PBS on Tuesday night (actually Wednesday, July 27) at midnight. Erik has a Carl Sagan pin on his jacket. Many people cannot recognize Sagan. Eric also has a pin for members of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. Erik is wearing a t-shirt that Frank bought for the movie Fish Bait. Frank was wearing the shirt when his character was eaten by a giant catfish. Members of Einstein Simplified starred in Fish Bait as the fishing buddies who end up at Fear Hollow Marina. They improvised their lines. The movie is available free with ads on Tubi. https://tubitv.com/movies/638830/fish-bait In an episode of The Office, Michael Scott takes an improv class but does all the things improvisers are trained not to do. In real life, Steve Carell is an excellent improviser. There are some improv games designed to break one of the improv rules such as the game “Questions Only.” The Secret City Improv Festival has a head-to-head tournament called the Slayden Cup, named after Bill Slayden, a founding member of Einstein Simplified. This year's festival will be September 30 and October 1, 2022. Erik wonders why he got an empty folder for his high school diploma. Frank says that's normal. Most schools hold back the actual diplomas until after the ceremony to make sure everyone has met all requirements. Erik wonders if his daughter will be interested in sports. Frank mentions that ballet is as intense as a sport. Frank played the old man in several Oak Ridge Civic Ballet Association performances. When Frank passed the age at which his father died, his sister texted, “Congratulations. You win at breathing.” Frank's next goals are to outlive his paternal grandfather, his uncle, and his maternal grandfather. Frank likes to say that he wants to be buried so that he is exhumable. Erik is from Elmira, New York. He met his wife when living in North Carolina. They moved to Gatlinburg because of his show. He is a mentalist. Mentalism is a branch of magic that involves mind-reading. The magicians who do elaborate stage shows are generally called illusionists. Erik once worked as a mime. Frank agrees that pantomiming is difficult. Improvisers try to do realistic pantomime when holding imaginary objects. The tv show Police Squad had hilarious ending scenes in which the actors would freeze but something in the scene kept moving. For example Leslie Nielsen was pouring coffee when the scene froze and the coffee cup overflowed. Frank loves the Police Squad theme. Erik likes ‘80s cartoon themes. Frank used to watch reruns of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends. Erik jokes that poor Rocky had a sad end. Frank appeared in parody videos for MoonPie. He played a character named Chandler Skootch who was afraid space aliens would invade Earth to get more MoonPies.

We have interviews and movie clips from the Illumination animated Universal film Minions: The Rise of Gru. Steve Carell, Taraji P. Hansen, Michelle Yeoh, Russell Brand, Alan Arkin, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Julie Andrews, Lucy Lawless and we have movie clips and interviews from the red carpet world premiere. We have in the studio footage along with red carpet world premiere interviews with the cast of Minions: The Rice of Gru.
Minions: The Rise Of Gru is the fifth film in the animated Despicable Me series. Set in the late 1970s, the new movie chronicles the early days of the supervillain Gru (voiced again by Steve Carell) and his relationship with the silly yellow babbling banana-loving henchmen who do his bidding.
He's the star of films like Anchorman, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Little Miss Sunshine and he's been on our tellys in shows like The Morning Show...oh, and he's only Michael Scott from The US Office but for many, Steve Carell is a very famous voice. For over 10 years, Steve has been playing the voice of Gru in the Despicable Me franchise and even after all these years, nothing gives him more joy than sending voice notes to excited children. Speaking to Dermot and Dave, the Golden Globe winning actor enlisted Gru to send a very special message to the children of Ireland.
Another mini episode, but this is a mini on one of the largest movies evermade (if you count the value/mass of a movie based on how large the boats are in the film). Evan almighty is the sequel to Bruce Almighty, and doesn't include Jim Carrey, cost 175 million dollars, was aimed at children, and is VERY religious...Who would watch that? Oscar and Carl try to figure that out.
Missed some of your favourite bits during the week? Want to catch up on the craic from Dermot and Dave? Well look no further than the Dermot and Dave Best Of podcast, your home for all of the messing with none of the music! Whether you're on a drive, out on a walk, getting stuck into the gaff or garden or looking for a bit of distraction from work, the Dermot and Dave Best of podcast has just some of our favourite moments from the week gone by! It was a HUGE week for us on team Dermot and Dave. Our Dermot was tee-ing off on the Pro Am at the Irish Open, but there was one small issue. Dave was his caddy. Thankfully, we had Dave (boiler)suited and booted for the occasion and the two made it through the day with their friendship intact. Something that didn't make it through the day was our Cathal's audio package. After staying up all night to bring us the best bits from the course, we had a nightmare with something called 'Phasing'. 'Stuck in the Middle With You' is forever stuck in our heads. It wasn't all golf this week. The brilliant Steve Carell joined us to chat about Minions, Dermot told us what happened to his family holiday and Dave finally came first in a game that was wrecking his head.

Plus, Ej discusses her trip to VidCon (culminating in a hearty dose of petty theft!) and Vox senior correspondent Rebecca Jennings visits to discuss how the Minions became a symbol for the proleteriat.

Be better than the Gap! It's time for Ryan Gosling to teach you and a down-on-his-luck Steve Carell how to be a better man...or at least a better player in 2011's Crazy Stupid Love. Mike Butler and Mike Field discuss how this quirky romantic dramedy is actually a generally great movie, that is well acted, well written, and well directed. This film has many branching storylines and although they are not all as strong as others, they all intersect very well and work to build a film that is incredibly memorable.

Today Heather is sitting down with a close friend and actress, Stephanie Szostak. Her most notable projects include The Devil Wears Prada, Ironman 3, and A Dinner for Schmucks just to name a few. Over the past decade, she has played alongside Meryl Streep, Robert Downey, Jr, Jeff Bridges, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Matt Damon, Kevin Bacon, Ryan Reynolds, and so many more. Embracing being an outsider has been part of Stephanie's life from a very early age moving to America. Growing up, she struggled to keep up with humor, food, and other social aspects that were vastly different than what she was used to back home in France. Rejection is a massive part of Stephanie's work. Even now having worked with A-list actors, she has to overcome the challenge of failure. It's easy to allow that failure to seep into crucial self-worth and force questioning of your own capabilities. At one point, Stephanie went over a year without a role, and when she didn't land a French bartending role, it was a major blow. Eventually, she realized she had to focus on what she could control, and learn and grow, but on her own terms. She broke free of what others thought or wanted of her and became an authentic version of herself. Prepare and let go. That's how things happen. If you can be authentic, that is a success. Stephanie's role in Iron Man three was the first time a director believed she had it in her to be a villain. The very thought of being the ‘tough guy' struck fear. But, her husband reminded her that her vulnerability was tough. She went in with an open, curious, and humble mind. To prepare for it, she worked hard to shed her ‘girly' feeling of her body and give her belief that she could be the character. Working with Robert Downey Jr., she says, is like dancing with a good leader–everything is easier. On top of that, she would dance and rap in her trailer before she worked. Even when facing disappointment as her role grew and was cut back, she learned to celebrate her effort over the outcome. Every time she comes on to set, Stephanie says, there is some fear. It's a challenge to have a new start and a new transition. When she was doing a movie with Kevin Bacon, Jeff Bridges., and Ryan Reynolds, she found herself alone with Kevin Bacon. After complimenting a difficult role Kevin played, he showed incredible vulnerability in sharing how nervous he was before starting a new movie. Even those who seem to be at the pinnacle of their craft face the same challenges. Stephanie developed the 180 playbook in the wake of that moment. She went on a search for how to deal with those insecurities. She realized it wasn't about fear or about performance anxiety, it was also about finding meaning and knowing what she's about and what she can bring to the table. From there, the challenge became 1) how do you remember all this, and 2) how do you incorporate all these new practices into your mindset. Stephanie started making flashcards before she would go on set, which sparked the idea of developing an app that could bring motivation for the day and set you in the right frame of mind. It could help people in recovery or therapy, and those who are just trying to make a change. Shifting gears entirely, Stephanie has had numerous love scenes with the likes of Ryan Reynolds and others. For her, she finds it easier as she's French and having professional partners make a huge difference. It's about knowing her boundaries. The unexpected thing that she's found lovely, she says, is the connections and friendships she's built. On top of that, playing a villain with Robert Downey Jr. was an incredible professional accomplishment. Socials @stephshortstak What you'll learn On today's episode, Stephanie shares with us how she overcomes rejection, failure, and challenges that put into question her self-worth. She discusses her process for prepping for a role with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and how she gets her mind in the right place every day.
