'Broadwaysted' Welcomes THE BAND'S VISIT's Andrew Polk
He's appearing in his first musical on Broadway, he's our first actor from the epic Marvel Universe, and we talk about immortalizing his first sweater--lots of firsts as Andrew Polk from THE BAND'S VISIT gets Broadwaysted. This week, we're coming to you pre-matinee so we switched out the cocktails for coffee and donuts (and KIND Bars) while Andrew spills about his current gig on Broadway (the critically-acclaimed THE BAND'S VISIT) as well as his role in the binge-tastic Netflix series HOUSE OF CARDS.
Andrew shares his family connection to his current Broadway role, his experience working with Adam Sandler and Chris Rock in the upcoming film "The Week Of," and his work with the Cape Cod Theatre Project.
Game Master Kimberly introduces two hilarious new games called "The Downbeat" and "A Waiting Game" (with Lights of Broadway Show Cards), Andrew takes a trippy trip to Kevin's Corner, and Kevin and Bryan rave about their recent trip to THE GAZILLION BUBBLE SHOW. We even hear about Andrew's upcoming TV show INSTINCT with Alan Cumming--so listen in and join our visit with new #FriendoftheShow Andrew Polk!
