In Atlanta, GA, he taught and performed at The Village Theatre with the stand out show, Salon du Shoguns. Now he's back in Wilmington, where he co-founded the comedy group, The Other Side, and ready to help guide you on your creative journey!
Daredevil Improvcomes to Wilmington to help create a lasting tradition of live spontaneous theatre and comedy in southeastern NC. It's focus will be to teach others to use improvisation for creating vibrant, visceral, and contemporary arts and entertainment.
Improv as a performance really took hold in American comedy culture thanks to dedicated visionaries like Viola Spolin, Del Close, Keith Johnstone, and numerous others. In Chicago, upon the founding of The Second City, improv found it's place as an avenue for satire, comedy, and artistic expression. All the while launching the careers of most of the household names in modern comedy. (Murray, Fey, Pohler, Meyers, Farley, Belushi, Key, Peele, Colbert, etc.)
And DareDevil Improv brings that spirit and knowledge down to the Port City for the first time!
Improv is not just a performance tool for actors and musicians, but for folks from all walks of life. In our classes, students learn not only the techniques and skills that make successful improvisers, but also the confidence and grace that make successful people.
So sign up for classes!
Be a DareDevil.
