Clifton from Judd and NewHeart answered our questions. Catch him twice during the weekend.
What is your favorite thing about improv?
The ability to be anyone or anyTHING on stage. To be in any situation, anywhere, anywhen. The possibilities are quite literally limitless.
What are hobbies you enjoy? (Aside from improv because obviously)
I like reading music and listening to books.
What is one thing about you that no one knows?
If they ever put on a cheese-enchilada-eating contest, I’d win. No one else would even bother to enter.
How did your come up with your troupe name?
Judd: early run-throughs when the troupe first formed always ended up resembling a Judd Apatow movie
NewHeart: we used to be called “My Heart Knows The Truth” which was far too long. After a 2-hour brainstorming session, and a strong effort from one member to change our name to “Jessica Albatross”, we settled on “New Heart”, and removed the space a couple of years ago to streamline things.
If aliens abducted you what would they find out about earth?
We willfully drink chemicals that probably do horrible things to our insides. Also, I’d be sure to communicate that enchiladas rule.
If you were a tug boat what would you tug and why?
Barges full of enchiladas, see above
