Hey DSI fans!

I've been in Austin, TX at the SXSW Conference for the past week.

I met a bunch of great people: Felicia Day (Actress, Buffy and Dr. Horrible), Chris Anderson (Editor, WIRED Magazine) Chris Lander (Blogger, Stuff White People Like) and more. I connected with people who might be able to help grow the scene in the Triangle and the experience has been humbling.

I let my mind spin on the ideas of unconditional support and community (concepts that we teach every improv class) and I have been considering the future for comedy in North Carolina. And I realized that future requires we Support Local Comedy wherever we can find it.

That being said, I want to send a shout out to ComedyWorx.

On behalf of the entire DSI family...

Happy 20th Anniversary!


Under the guidance of owner Richard Gardner, ComedyWorx (formerly ComedySportz), with a lot of sweat and hard work from both the current Ensemble and impressive roster of CSz and CWx Alums, created the first REAL home for improvisation in North Carolina and they truly built a comedy giant. Richard Gardner fostered an improv community with teachers, directors and comedians across the Triangle, operating two clubs in Raleigh (1989-) and Chapel Hill (1993-2000).

I myself got my start at the Chapel Hill club in 1993. I am extremely proud and grateful to have been part of that club and am excited to see ComedyWorx celebrate something not a lot of theater companies anywhere are able to celebrate. 20 years! I just checked out the lineup and they have some guests back in town and some special reunion shows lined up.

So DSI fans, Help them celebrate!
