Activate your sense of nostalgia and join us in travelling back in time to a select point over the past 70 years. Based on the audience’s suggestion our improv performers will visit a decade from the 1940’s – 2000’s and revist one of the more influential events of that decade and the iconic music that defined that period of time.
|Jeff Miner (Improvisor #13) A foundling, Jeff was raised by carnies until the age of eight when he ran away to study accounting. Having become the world's youngest self-made billionaire at age eleven, his fall from grace is now legendary - the sordid affairs, the futile humanitarian gestures, the failed bid for the presidency, the best-selling memoir. In order to escape the constant hounding of the tabloid press, Jeff took up improv where he has faded into blessed obscurity. He is not to be trusted.|
|Rasheed (Actor) Born on May 16, 1966 in Gary, Indiana, to Katherine Jackson (née Katherine Esther Scruse) and Joe Jackson, a musician. He is the youngest of ten children. After his birth, his brothers formed a band. He lived at home with her sisters, while his brothers and father lived an extravagant life in Los Angeles. She later moved in with them while his brothers were making a name for themselves, and signed a deal with Motown. He was in the shadow but later also made a name for herself. Doing improv, sketch, and other various forms of acting.|
|James Roop (Lead Ginger) is better than Rasheed. But who's counting? (James is)|
|Steve Hanson (Director) After becoming the first person in history to be rejected by his local community college, Steve left his birthplace of New Jersey in 2003 to open a pizzeria in Williston, North Dakota. Shortly thereafter the Williston shale oil boom hit, making his pizzeria worth millions overnight. With his new fortune Steve returned to New Jersey and launched a news parody sight, Hilaritan, with his high school friend and DJ Greg Kyriakakis. Despite a successful launch the duo quickly found themselves in massive debt after Steve invested all of his millions into a failed Hilaritan motion picture about right triangles called Pythagorean Theorem. Following the bank's foreclosure on the website Steve hitchhiked across the country to start again with a clean slate. Arriving in the Bay Area in 2014 Steve has been performing improv and doing sketch writing ever since, with NostalgiaProv marking his live theater directorial debut.|
