Antarctic Research Station

SPONTANEANATION with Paul F. Tompkins #123 July 31, 2017

Paul F. Tompkins surprises all on this week’s Spontaneanation! This time out, Paul’s special guest is stand-up comedian and writer Marcella Arguello! They chat about which job from earlier in Marcella’s life would she like to do again and what would it have to pay, why it was so great being a busboy at LACMA alongside her comedian friends, and being obsessed with Michael Jackson growing up. Paul is then joined by Shaun Diston, Zeke Nicholson, and Carl Tart, to improvise a story set in an Antarctic Research Station. And as always, Eban (only the best) Schletter scores it all on piano!
