The Belly of a Whale

SPONTANEANATION with Paul F. Tompkins #141 December 4, 2017

Paul F. Tompkins welcomes all back to Spontaneanation! This time out, Paul’s special guests are Beth Newell and Sarah Pappalardo, editors and co-founders of Reductress! Beth and Sarah chat about whether or not they’ve ever stolen anything, being propositioned by an older man while bagging groceries as a teenager, and the one time babysitting for a mother who got accusatory when she asked how they knew her child was constipated. Then, they are joined by improvisers Ryan Gaul, Amanda Lund, and Jordan Black, to improvise a story set in The Belly of a Whale. And as always, Eban (only the best) Schletter scores it all on piano!

San Francisco: Spontaneanation will be LIVE at the Marines Memorial Theatre on Friday, January 12th at 10pm as part of San Francisco SketchFest! For tickets go to
