Michael Loves Greg

New York improviser/Philly native – Michael McFarland and Philly performer Greg Maughan ask their audience about something they love, and then turn a brief interview into the jumping off point for a set that explores love in all it’s forms: from brotherly love to patriotism, and from love for fishing to love for stamps.

About the Group:

Michael came to New York City by way of Philadelphia where he studied acting at The Actors’ Center and was the original creator of Improv Sunday at Fergie’s – the first regular monthly longform improv show in the city. He was also Co-Founder and Producer of the first Philadelphia Improv Festival (PHIF). He enjoyed his time in Philadelphia but soon moved to NYC and quickly became a regular member of the Magnet Theater’s resident ensembles. He is now a producer of Philly’s Duofest. Michael is one hell of a guy, maybe because his personal motto is: “I always have something to say.”

Greg Maughan is the founder of Philly Improv Theater (PHIT), a nationally recognized comedy theatre producing & presenting “alternative comedy” (improv, sketch and stand-up) in the metro-Philadelphia area most nights of the year.  A semi-regular performer on PHIT’s stage, he has been acting and directing improv and sketch comedy since 1999 – first in Detroit (where he appeared briefly in “Improv Survivor”, an alternate production at The Second City) and then in Philly. Greg has toured along the east coast and performed in numerous comedy festivals with various improv groups, (including Industrial, Holmes/Maughan, and The Moops), and made guest appearances with many more – incuding guest performances with House Teams at NYC’s Magnet Theatre and UCB Theatre Harold Team members. In 2010 he appeared in the hit Philly Fringe show “Punchline!” and performed with Matt Besser, a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade. As a director, he lead Everything Must Go – an original House Team at PHIT – from its inception in 2008 until the team retired in 2010, and has lent advice and support to list of improv and sketch groups in the city longer than he can remember.
