Speakeasy Special: Ellie Kemper, Cameron Esposito, Michael McKean, Emmy the Great

It's an all new "Speakeasy" -- our occasional, off-the-cuff, slightly profane, online-only podcast where we share some of the great stuff we had to leave on the cutting room floor.

This time around you'll hear Ellie Kemper of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" attempt to raise the bar for improv (or is it the roof?)... Plus, Comedian Cameron Esposito schools Brendan on the perils of wearing blue on TV -- and on the perks of entering a room with Tom Cruise...Michael McKean finds the silver lining in a fan diss... And -- bonus audio from our recent NYC live taping! -- Emmy the Great performs a cover of Faye Wong's cover of the Cranberries tune "Dream." Got it? Good. Cheers!
