Bill Carter’s Trainer For The Stars Seeking Stars Dot Org

Andy Daly and Matt Gourley are two of my all-time, lifelong, brain-rewiring favorite comedians. Suffice it to say, I'm a big fan of their aptly-titled 2014 collaboration, the Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project. For those who don't know, Andy's stable of sweetly endearing characters are mostly suicidal/murderous geriatrics. Bill Carter (aged 91) is one such character, and in episode three, he — plus a roundtable of fellow improv comedians — hosted a workout.

This workout, I hasten to add, is both (1) conceptually impossible and (2) objectively fatal. (“Now I’m gonna say, just right now — just to be 100% clear: I do not recommend that anyone do this workout.” “God, no.” “Legally we have to tell you not to do what he says.” “And morally, and ethically. Please don’t do it.”)

But it begged to be visualized. (The episode is chock-full of specific geographies, distances, linear instructions, and even its own URL.) And so I did.

One small part of the whole sketching/planning process. (See all of it here.)

Zero-point-one miles.

One-point-one miles.

This isn’t the end, but it doesn’t end well.
