Chris has had a long career of improv, but until The Improv People showed up in his life, his audience was restricted to his wife and dog. They are grateful that they no longer have to bear his onslaughts on their own. Chris is excited to have found some new friends to play with and looking forward to many moons of make-believe with his co-conspirators.
