614 (COLUMBUS, OHIO) -- “I went to San Francisco State and saw improv for the first time. I had never seen it; I’d seen stand-up but didn’t know what improv was. They got the audience involved and absolutely loved the audience, and I thought, ‘I could do that.’ Much like when the artist is taken by his parents to see the Rembrandt when he’s little and says, ‘I can do that.’ ‘Whose Line’ came about 10 years after that. Luckily they came here and I auditioned and I got on. That was, oh God, 1989, I was 4 years old…. We’re doing our 30th anniversary in London this year.”
