In this interview with The Pickwyck, Joey Richter chats about his work with Team Starkid, being one of three founding members of the comedy group the Tin Can Brothers, his upcoming projects and more!
When did you realize that you wanted to get into acting? Was there a specific show or piece of theater that made you think, 'Yep. This is it. This is what I want to do'?
When I was seventeen, I remember watching A Very Potter Musical (it just exploded onto Youtube) and absolutely loving it. In fact, Starkid has held a very special place in my heart ever since (#fangirlmoment, my bad!). How does it feel knowing that your work has been loved and admired by so many?
Team Starkid has put on so many great productions, as well as live tours! What do you feel is the most rewarding thing about performing for your fans?
Can you tell us a little bit about Tin Can Brothers? What is your favorite thing about being a part of this group?
Speaking of the Tin Can Bros. - Congrats on The Solve It Squad's recent off-Broadway run! What was it like bringing this show to New York?
Do you prefer writing content/shows or performing on stage?
What can you tell us about the upcoming production of Starkid's 'The Guy Who Didn't Like Musicals'? Any inside tidbits about your character that you can share with us?
If you could go back in time, what's one piece of advice or words of wisdom that you would give to your younger self?
Time for some rapid fire questions! If you could have any superpower, what would you choose?
Who would you rather have on your side during a fight, Batman or Wolverine?
If you could share the stage or screen with any actor or actress, who would it be?
If you could star in a live action Disney remake, what movie would it be?
What makes you laugh?
