Award-winning & nationally touring opening improv comedy act   Can’t Tell Us Nothing   troupe members Antoine, Tandi, Amechi, and Jon interview their guest  Nick Cooper  (  Free Radicals  ,   Houston DSA  ). The comedians jump back and forth between scenes & characters made up on-the-spot, and the guest interview whose answers inspire the next comedic scene.
