Paul F. Tompkins welcomes ladies and gentleman back to Spontaneanation! This time out, Paul’s special guest is Clea DuVall of HBO’s Veep! They chat about how Clea feels about her eye color, the worst haircut she had that she loved at the time, and a shirt she bought because it reminded her of PFT. Then, they are joined by improvisers Nicole Parker, Eugene Cordero, and Little Janet Varney to improvise a story set at A Bank Heist. And as always, Eban (only the best) Schletter scores it all on piano!
