In this week’s NOW, I have a conversation with Cathy Jones about comedy, performance anxiety and the general state of her career. We did this in advance of her appearance next week at Harbourfront’s Brave festival, but I honestly would have taken any chance to talk to her. She’s great!
(The festival kicks off tonight, and there’s plenty of fun stuff to see this weekend. We made a list!)
I also sat down with Boots Riley, whose audacious new film Sorry to Bother You is one of the best things you will see this year. Feel free to read that conversation (and my review) without fear of spoilers, but I’d suggest you see the film as soon as you can. People are going to be talking about it an awful lot.
