Steve is a testament to the phrase, "Now with less Yellow Number
5." He graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in 1999 with
a B.S. in Mathematics and Statistics. He naturally progressed to
being in front of people in an extroverted setting. Steve dislikes
stereotypes. When not on stage, Steve enjoys composing music, socializing,
and plotting revenge on smart-smart-talkin' ferns. His day job is
decoding black boxes in in in in in airplanes. He also secretly
wants to be in a boy band.
Chris has been with the Gentlemen from its inception, and can still
remember the first time he was asked to improvise a psychiatrist
giving life advice to a neurotic vampire. He thought the group would
be a great way for him to meet women. He was wrong. His interests
include Improv, a good cup of tea, and trying to find a way to beat
his wife at Rummy.
One day the Lord spoke and created a child. A child so funny, the
doctors laughed at him as he entered the world, and women have been
laughing at him ever since. After moving to Washington at the behest
of the U.S. Army, Shawn further honed his skills while (gasp!) volunteering
with teens for nearly 10 years. Shawn's official foray into performance
Improv began with Tacoma's Tokens Improv, performing at the city's
annual First Night Festival, KBTC's Comedy Alley, and the famous
Emerald Queen Casino. Look for him in the Dead Gentlemen's upcoming
film "UnReality", and look out for him when you're walking
down the street by yourself -- he is from Brooklyn after all...
I modelled my looks on the town tramp. I'm not offended by all
the dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb... and I also know that I'm not blonde.
Storms make trees take deeper roots.
Sadly, sadly, the sun rose; it rose upon no sadder sight
than the man of good abilities and good emotions, incapable of their directed exercise, incapable
of his own help and his own happiness, sensible of the blight on him, and resigning him-self to
let it eat him away.
David is the youngest of the Dead Gentlemen. He has been an active
member of the Gentlemen since he was able to vote. When not improvising,
David spends his semi-precious time invested in web design, music
composition, and napping. He sings in a big choir, enjoys life,
and likes fries. Big steak fries. With ketchup. Lots of ketchup.
Matt is this guy from Tacoma. He graduated from PLU in 2001 with
a couple of useless fine arts degrees, and has since worked as a
teacher's aide, a chiropractic assistant, a free-lance writer, and
a taco jerk. He also writes stuff for Dead
Gentlemen Productions. Matt lives with his wife in a
small house with a pair of insane cats. Look over there.
Ben is a quasi-native of the Pacific Northwest
who who likes to write about himself in the third person. He is
a 2001 graduate of Pacific Lutheran University in film studies.
When not covering musical duties for Dead Gentlemen Improv, Ben
is teaching film at the Tacoma School of the Arts, and working on
a multitude of Dead Gentlemen film projects. Ben has directed two
feature films, produced a a a third, edited a multitude of shorts
and documentaries, and and once performed a one man show in France.
Nathan is a quasi-human originating from the Pacific Northwest,
though raised in Idaho. If you say anything about potatoes, he's
likely to punch you. He graduated 2001 from PLU with degrees in
Theatre, Philosophy, and Gaming. Nathan has been floating from job
to job like a useless bum waiting to figure out the meaning of life,
during which time he earned a role in a semi-professional theatre
production in the greater Seattle area. He has almost no discernable
