Best Advice for People Who want to learn improv: Trust your instincts on stage and don't be a "you-know-what"-bag to other performers.
What prior stage/performing experience did you have before joining ComedySportz? Junior High School roles in 'Tom Sawyer', 'Joseph and the ATD', 'The Pied Piper', 'Tied to the Tracks', and 'Ducktails and Bobbysocks'.
What brought you to Comedysportz? Joseph Draschil and destiny
It seems you always shine during the musical improvs. Do you have a background in music, play any instruments? I've always loved choir. My first real exposure to music was when I learned to play trombone in Jr High. I'm obsessed with karaoke.
Which musical game is your favorite? Probably 'Greatest Hits' or 'Rogers & Hammersing', although 'Rosetta Song' is really growing on me.
People come see you at ComedySportz when they want to be entertained... what do you do to be entertained? Consume BYU sports, play with my iPhone, fishing, basketball, karaoke, Billy Joel, little brown packages tied up with string...uhh, what were we talking about?
So, I've seen you play on the red and blue teams but also caught you in the zebra stripes a time or two? I like to ref. To me, reffing is kind of like teaching the lesson in Elders Quorum. I enjoy it from time to time, but too much of it makes me nauseous...And sometime people fall asleep. Seriously though, it requires a little more thinking than I typically like to do on stage and sometimes it starves my insatiable ego.
Lots of the players here at ComedySportz are also involved in acting and film are you? I have never been in a real movie, and I don't aspire to do so. Screen acting isn't really my bag. I don't know. I guess Stage Improv is just kind of like my soul mate, you know? Everything else just falls a little short. Don't tell my wife I said that.
Is there anything else you want us to know? I have a wife, Katie, and two daughters, Lucy and Claire. We're expecting our third next Spring.
