The writers for that show are amazing, and we spend 70-90 hours a week on it in full production, so I wouldn’t have any time to write even if I wanted to. What is it like working with Chevy Chase on Community? It’s crazy. He’s someone I grew up admiring. I have been so fortunate to get to learn from people like Chevy Chase and from Pat Cashman on Almost Live!. In June, you got to throw out the first pitch at a Mariners game. What was that like? I’ve been a longtime Mariners fan so it was a big thrill. But a bigger thrill was not horribly embarrassing myself by throwing the ball in the dirt. What does the future hold for you? My focus right now is on doing Community and The Soup and seeing if I can get some more movie roles. But one dream I have is to act in a play at the Rep [Seattle Repertory Theatre]. That would be great. —Jon Marmor ■

It might look like a ticket, but it’s actually an adventure. World-class drama, dance, music, art and exhibitions in Seattle’s own backyard. Performance, exhibition and ticket information:
