Fish Out Of Water

Fish Out of Water is a comedy writing podcast hosted by Jeremiah Burton and Ryan Tweedy. Each week they have a new guest join them and talk about various types of comedy writing from television to the internet to live theater. It’s a podcast where comedians get to nerd out about writing comedy and talk about what makes them laugh.


Jeremiah and Tweedy invite Megan Grano into the studio to talk about sketch comedy and her career path through The Second City in Detroit and then in Chicago and finally joining up with iO Chicago and then iO west. We talk about some of her heroes including Stephanie Weir and Susan Messing. Megan also talks about working with Molly Erdman and Laurel Coppock on their youtube channel The BreakWomb which is a sketch comedy channel based on the trials and tribulations of motherhood. Megan directs the sketch team, Jet Jaguar, at iO west and works with many corporations such as Facebook and famous comedians such as Jim Belushi.
