What got you started doing improv?
All my friends in high school were doing it, and I wanted to be cool.
What do remember about your first show?
I was in the CSz Milwaukee High School League, and I had never seen a ComedySportz match before (I snuck into an 18+ show once, but it doesn’t count). I remember sitting on the bench during the first game of the match thinking, “Oh, I get it!”
After my first few HSL matches, I was offered a spot to play on a road show. That was my first professional match.
What kind of games do you like to play, and why?
I love the games that catch the fans (and sometimes other players off guard). At the end of every match I want the crowd to walk away with the sense of, “How’d they do that?” and players to walk back to the locker room thinking, “How’d we do that!?”.
How has ComedySportz and improv affected your life?
Being able to use it to teach and help other people accept happiness and become more comfortable with themselves, helped me find some meaning.
