I’ve also never been a fan of criticizing other comedians publicly—ape shall never kill ape and all that—but I don’t like pranks. I think they’re mean. I feel sorry for the people who get pranked. So after being sent a link to a recent IE "mission" I made a joke about them...That same day I was contacted in my home—my HOME-- by Improv Everywhere founder Charlie Todd. We had a good debate about what he does and how I feel about what he does.
With Charlie’s permission, I have published our exchange below."
