    I am a fan of Wyllis Cooper and “Quiet, Please.”

    I was delighted when I brought a script over to a Halloween party with a group of actors from another “Quiet, Please” called “Don’t Tell Me About Halloween.” We did without a run through and I was delighted when everyone, none of them had heard of Cooper or “Quiet, Please” before. It was a lot of fun and they liked it.

    I have a co-worker who acts like Kidneyfoot. Listening to this is my guilty pleasure.
