03 – Eileen Tull

My guest this week is Eileen Tull, comedian, writer, solo performer, and producer of amazing feminist work in Chicago.  I spoke with Eileen after I saw her latest one-woman show Bad Dates, Or What Killed That Monkey In Indiana Jones Will Only Make You Stronger.  She talked about some of her favorite spaces for women in Chicago.  She also opened up about her biggest fears (it’s not being naked on stage–she’s done that) and how real vulnerability seems to be in short supply these days.  She’s also got some top-notch advice for aspiring artists, especially those looking to work outside the mold of traditional theatre.
