This weekend (Friday June 17- Sunday June 19) is the Hideout Improv Marathon in which 8 improvisors perform for 47 hours.

This is the 7th in a series of short profiles of each of the 8 performers. Read about them and then watch them slowly lose their minds over the course of the weekend during the 47-Hour Improv Marathon.

1. What comfort item are you bringing?

My phone and phone charger. I want to be in contact with my family throughout. So I guess in a way, I’m bringing my family.

2. What about the marathon most excites you?

The idea that we are helping kids that need certain services. I have seen firsthand what imorov can do to help youngsters with their various issues. GO KIDDOS!!!

3. What about the marathon most scares you?

I’m not as young as I used to be. I’m scared my old body might shut down. I mean, I don’t think I will die or anything, but… I’m not gonna die, right?

4. What’s your pump up jam?

I’m going to be listening to a lot of Prince to keep myself happy and The Sword to get me rawking hard!
