#158: Justine Carol, Josh Carson, Chris Knutson, Sam Landman and Adam Fielitz

The focus of this week’s podcast is the ongoing Comedy Roast of Ebenezer Scrooge, put on by the Actor’s Theatre of Minnesota and performed at Camp in St. Paul.

00:00: In which we introduce the performers, discuss spelling, and Josh Carson gives us the rundown on how the idea of roasting Ebenezer Scrooge came to fruition.

02:45: Sam Landman discusses the origins of the modern roast and the cast pinpoints what makes Scrooge such an effective target.

06:13: A comment on Mrs. Cratchit leads to an examination of the modern incarnations of A Christmas Carol.

11:08: We move into discussing how the show has changed in a year’s time, and how amorphous it is from show to show.

13:59: Justine speaks to her experience coming into the show in its second year.

16:23: I attempt to rein in the cast a bit by bringing the conversation around to Camp bar.

The Comedy Roast of Ebenezer Scrooge runs until December 22nd at Camp.

    Great work, Joshua. Wish we’d kept the pen-focused debate.

    Thanks Sam.

    Unfortunately I only recorded about half the pen conversation. It is unwhole and partially lost to the ages.
