See Me Be Funny Free!


As many of you know, I’m an actor in a local improv comedy troupe, Face2Face Improv. We do short game-based comedy sketches, based on suggestions made by the audience. Tell us who you want us to be, and we’ll act it out for you! If you ever saw the old ABC television show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” it’s like that, only better, since the suggestions are coming from you!

I have a limited number of free tickets for shows this month, and I want to give away them all! The tickets are for our weekly Tuesday night shows at Sam & Greg’s Pizza and Gelato Shop on the courthouse square in downtown Huntsville. Showtime each week is at 7:30, and the shows last about 40 minutes and are appropriate for all ages.

If you’d like to see me perform, I’ll be hosting the show on June 12 and performing in the show on June 19. (There’s a small chance I may be in the June 26 show, but I don’t know that right now. If I’m not, you can still go to that one, and it will still be hilarious.)

If you’d be interested in a free ticket, contact me!

Scenes From A Show


We had two great Face2Face Improv shows this weekend, one at Thespis Theater in south Huntsville on Saturday night, and our glorious return to Decatur after more than two years on Friday night at the new Coffee and Play House venue there, which was, let me say, incredible.

Our oh-so-talented videographer Caleb McPherson brought his still camera to the Friday night show, and got some great pics. There’s no way to really know what it’s like being at a Face2Face show other than, well, to be at what, but I share this as some random glimpses into what we do.

Life On Mars


We have a new Face2Face Improv clip up online, from a scene I did with Jeremy Shelley a while back. We’re supposed to be two astronauts on Mars, and when the host rings the bell, we have to change our last line to something different.

But I also wanted to share the other big Face2Face news — the new Face2Face Improv website is now online!!

I’ll be in a show tonight at Sam & Greg’s Pizzeria and Gelateria across from the courthouse in downtown Huntsville at 7:30 p.m.; we do shows there every Tuesday night. Tickets are $5, with children 8 and under free.

We’re also planning a bigger-format show at Thespis Theater in south Huntsville for Saturday, September 17.

Come join us!


For those that haven’t seen Face2Face before, we’re a comedy improv troupe. We make up scenes on the spot, based on suggestions from the audience. (And for the more timid in the crowd, we don’t bring anyone on stage or force anyone to do anything; you’re more than welcome to just sit back and enjoy the show.) We do a family friendly show of live entertainment. If you’ve ever seen the old ABC show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” we’re kinda like that. Only better.

I can’t embed them here, but there are videos of some of my work with the troupe on Facebook that should be publicly visible. Ticket information for shows is here.

Classic Lines From Face2Face


For years now, I’ve been saving great lines I’ve loved from shows and rehearsals of the improv troupe I’m part of, Face2Face Improv. For the longest time, I’ve had the idea that I would design a t-shirt with some of the best of them. And now I have. I thought I’d share the results here.

A lot of stuff we do really has to be in context, and, with the nature of improv, if you’ve missed the context once, you’ve missed it forever. But these were some that I thought were amusing even without context. (Or that really make you wonder what the context was.)

(By the way, you should totally come see us. You can check the Web site for our schedule, or you can just come to Sam & Greg’s Pizzeria and Gelateria in downtown Huntsville on any Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for that 40-minute show are only $5, and kids 8 and under are free.)

Here are a few more that I didn’t have room for:

We Promise Yule Laugh


When it comes down to it, we’re just having fun.

Sure, entertaining audiences is a big part of what we do at Face2Face Improv. And, yeah, we make a small amount of money off of it. But, ultimately, we do it because we enjoy it. Which is good news for the audience, because, generally, they shows we enjoy the most are the shows you enjoy the most.

I say that because, technically, we’re on hiatus. We usually take the months of December and January off each year as a break from both shows and rehearsal. But what inevitably happens is that we go into withdrawal. By the time we start rehearsing again, we miss it desperately.

So this year, while we’re officially on break, we’re going to be doing a handful of special shows at Sam & Greg’s Pizzeria and Gelateria on the square in downtown Huntsville. There will be two December shows, both on Tuesdays, Dec. 14 and 28. Both shows will be at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 each, and children 8 and under are free.

As an added bonus, the shows are taking place not only during the F2F break, they’re taking place during the school holiday break as well, which means we’ll be joined by two special guests. On the 14th, we’ll have longtime troupe member Jeremy Shelley, and on the 28th, we’ll be joined by former F2F and current member of KARL Improv, Meghan Kenny. Meghan played a few shows with us during the summer, but Jeremy hasn’t been on stage with us for a very long time, so these shows are a very unique opportunity to see these two performers. To be honest, getting back to the “we do it because we enjoy it thing,” I scheduled the 14th show mostly so that I could work with Jeremy. He’s awesomely entertaining to watch, and incredibly fun to work with. Of course, that’s true of the rest of the troupe, but I get to work with them more.

For those that haven’t seen Face2Face before, we’re a comedy improv troupe. We make up scenes on the spot, based on suggestions from the audience. (And for the more timid in the crowd, we don’t bring anyone on stage or force anyone to do anything; you’re more than welcome to just sit back and enjoy the show.)
