Plaid To Meet You is a new way to introduce the community to our performers. I will be choosing performers whose plaid patterns catch my eye. This week's plaid performer is Danny Neely, whose red, white, and blue plaid shirt caught my attention. Danny, great shirt. Who are you wearing this evening? This is a Docker’s shirt.
Well, it’s a great shirt. What made you decide to go with that shirt this evening? I think it matches well with my tie and cardigan.
It really does. Which troupes are you a member of? I am in Warm Milk, Coiffelganger, Empty Inside, Big Turtle, Clover, and Sauce Age.
When could we catch you performing next? Thursday, September 29, 9 p.m. with Big Turtle; Friday, September 30, 8 p.m. with Empty Inside and 11 p.m. with Coiffelganger; and Saturday, October 1, 11 p.m. with Warm Milk.
What attracted you to improv, and what keeps you performing? Improv inspires a way of thinking that you don’t readily find institutionally, or in day-to-day interactions. It’s liberating, and sure, the attention is nice. I love the culture surrounding improv. It’s supportive and dorky and welcoming.
Finally, what is one piece of advice you would give to all performers? Always poop before your shows.
