49. Interview with CJ Hunt and Kyle June Williams of Our Sunken City

49.  Take a Spooky Tour or run for the King of Rex as we interview comedians CJ Hunt and Kyle June Williams,  creators of the YouTube series Our Sunken City. After college, CJ moved to New Orleans to teach middle school.  He fell in love with the city and stayed to teach improv to kids and help found The New Movement (a comedy theater with locations in New Orleans and Austin).  His affection for the city is rivaled by that of his co-creator Kyle.  Kyle moved down from New York to do a summer of theater and get away from the grind.  Kyle had forgotten what friendliness was like.  NOLA showed her what that was again, and so she stayed to continue pursuing her acting and comedy career.  They cast the series primarily out of their alma mater, The New Movement - NOLA. Sunken City grows directly out of a rich community of comedians and actors dedicated to turning New Orleans into the next great comedy city.  "The series is a savvy mix of Portlandia‘s vignette-fueled style and the crazy characters of Louisiana’s largest city." - TubeFilter. You owe it to yourself to watch Our Sunken City.   Many big budget projects set in New Orleans get it All Wrong, but they put in the effort to get it Right.
