Very few people can say that they've written for shows that range from The Mickey Mouse Club to Futurama, Evan Gore can. Besides just being very funny, Evan started out as a performer at Second City in Chicago and told us about how that led to writing for all kinds of Kids TV, even though I interrupted him 100 times. He's also performs, teaches Improv and helped me learn how to hold a gun in a scene; something every American should know.
