The third issue of Seed Strategy’s The Fire Theft Project: Conversations on Creativity features stand-up comic and Saturday Night Live cast member Vanessa Bayer.
The new digital magazine is now available for iPad and iPad Mini on Apple Newsstand, and as a PDF for other devices on the magazine’s website: TheFireTheftProject.com.
In this first-ever interview between Bayer and her journalist-brother Jonah, the rising starlet gives us a glimpse into how she mines her childlike innocence to bring an optimistic twist to comedy’s typically darker reputation. “Everybody goes through difficult things in their life,” Bayer says. “Comedians are the ones who choose to laugh about it.”
- Characters are Everywhere: How Bayer can see—and harness—the comedic potential in anyone’s personality.
- Immature Inspiration: “Kids are so funny because they’re really free. When you’re a kid, you’re not judging what you’re doing.”
- A Moment of Ohm: Bayer empties her mind to keep her wit sharp; do the same with a relaxing guided meditation from our resident shaman, Robert Guard.
