Improv Madness: Rice Krispies

BY DAN DEMING-HENES
@ VOL 17 ON APR 14, 2016

Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "Rice Krispies." Hilarity ensued.

Dan Deming-Henes, as a professional designer, he has the requisite beard and attitude. Besides being able to trim facial hair, he has also had experience trimming trees as an Arborist. Realizing the glamorous lifestyle that goes along with shrubbery care was not for him, he struck out on his own, making art and telling jokes. He became the house manager for Atlas Improv Company in 2005, which he discovered required a surprising amount of diaper changing. Undeterred, he started taking classes and eventually joined the company as a performer in 2012. He now has people to take care of the diaper changing for him.
