Each month, the Dallas Comedy House highlights an individual nominated by their peers as Performer Of The Month. To cast your vote for a performer, simply fill out this form.
The inaugural recipient is Logan Romero, a hilarious improviser who can currently be seen in Brotherless and Roommates. Logan began taking classes in 2015 and immediately made a mark with his goofy personality and performance style. He is omnipresent at the theater, somehow able to see every show (Even if multiple shows are happening simultaneously, it’s kind of amazing).
I asked Logan a few questions to better get to know this delightful person.
Do you have any routines that you follow in preparation for a show?
Logan- I splash water on my face to wake me up and keep me in the present, then I throw on a smile and go into the green room to connect with my fellow performers. My favorite way to connect is warming up with mind meld (gotta look each other in the eyes or else it ain't real!).
Please describe your ideal scene partner.
Logan- Someone who takes chances in a scene and supports me when I do the same. I also appreciate a scene partner that stays in the moment.
What was the first show you saw at the Dallas Comedy House?
Logan- The first show I remember seeing was the Improvised Horror Movie. Still one of my favorites.
When you were going through classes, who were some of the performers you looked up to?
Logan- Sarah Wyatt, Ashley Bright, David Allison, Sallie Bowen.
How have those performers influenced you (Both onstage and off)?
Logan- They definitely made me want to give a shit about this art form through the way they expressed their passion for it (either through class or in hallway conversations). I always appreciated how humble they were and I try to emulate that as much as I can.
When you’re on stage, what are you focused on?
Logan- It alternates between staying true to my character, having fun, and listening as hard as possible.
What is the best piece of advice you were given about improvisation?
Logan- “This is the least important thing you'll do today.”
How would you want someone else to describe you?
Logan- “He’s genuine and passionate person. I'd buy him a beer (I like IPA’s btw).
