Kevin and Jenny, and today, we are bringing you our chats with Paul Scheer (Andre), and the two show creators, real life married coupled Jeff and Jackie Shaffer!

With Scheer, he talks a bit about his infamous on show wardrobe, which unfortunately for him, has influenced his real life wardrobe in all the wrong ways. He also talks about the collaborative efforts with the cast, as well as his where he comes up with some of the amazing improvs. And finally, Scheer shares his thoughts on some of his other favorite shows, including The Walking Dead!

We were also lucky enough to catch up with the brilliant minds behind the show, creators Jeff and Jackie Shaffer. The two of them talk about the challenges of directing a show that is part written dialogue and part improv from the actors. In addition, the Shaffer’s talk about how much fun they had doing the Rafi Dirty Randy-centric episode from this past season. We hope you enjoy our interview with The League show creators Jeff and Jackie Shaffer!
