DSI Director Spotlight

Read the comments (13) | Permalink

As Artistic Director I work hard to shape our Training Center philosophy and drive the overall product quality at the Theater, but the weekly rehearsals and growth of our company often falls into the hands of four incredibly dedicated members of the DSI Comedy family. I wanted to acknowledge them, the people that help to direct and coach our creative teams.

Paula PAZDERKA and Andy LAVENDER are coaching Harold >>



Harold is a longform improv format developed by Del Close and Charna Halpern at the iO Theater in Chicago and performed around the world. Harold teams at DSI Comedy Theater are setup to perform the company's signature improv form, the Harold. Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch, John Lutz, Jack McBrayer, Amy Poehler, and a number of the comedy elite all used Harold skills to create successful careers for themselves writing and performing comedy on SNL, MADtv, The Daily Show, 30 Rock, and Comedy Central.

Kit FITZSIMONS currently coaches Improv SLAM >>



DSI proudly offers up IMPROV SLAM, a modern freestyle improv comedy battle. Two crews of comedians feed off the crowd to spin an improv show that has never been seen before, every time. Yeah, you heard right. It's a BRAND NEW show every time. For Summer we are offering both a 730pm Family-friendly set and a 930pm Adult set. SAY WHAT!

Aaron KECK named Head Writer for DSI Witness News >>



For the past year DSIWN (@DSIWN) has been featured every weekday morning on 1360 WCHL Chapel Hill-Carrboro's News, Talk and Tar Heels Station. Twisted headlines and Hysterical characters from our cast of writers On Air with Ron Stutts. Look for LIVE shows later in the Summer.

I want to thank them for supporting Local Comedy.

And of course, I want to thank my entire DSI Comedy family for the incredible amount of effort that goes into our work off and onstage, bringing LIVE comedy to the community every weekend at our humble home in Carrboro.
