“A heady mix of stand-up comedy, music and conversation, Right NOW! is refreshingly self-aware and just the right amount of raw. Rebecca Vigil leads the house band and is both hilarious and an amazingly accomplished improvisational singer who complements Castiglia’s equally hilarious and incredibly quick-witted hosting style. No, really—I’ve rarely seen anyone as quick on their feet as Castiglia, and it works beautifully with the tone and pace of the show.” – A Women’s Thing
