Alex Borstein interview

Alex BorsteinBack Stage West interviews Alex Borstein, formerly of MADtv: Improvised Madness

While I was working in advertising, my brother Adam said, "Hey, let's go take an improv class together at ACME Comedy Theatre here in Los Angeles on La Brea." We did. I ended up loving it, auditioned for the troupe, got in, and started doing improv and sketch with them for a year and a half. Then I got five of us together to go to a comedy festival in Austin, where we all got auditions for MADtv. It's hilarious because the people who cast the show are about a mile and a half from the ACME Theatre, and we had to go to fucking Texas to get an audition.
