Meet the Guest

Derrick Tesson

Derrick Tesson has been an improv performer since the young age of sixteen. Of those 12 years of experience, he’s been doing GOOD improv for about 7. Derrick doesn’t believe in superstitions. He broke a mirror 2 years ago and had only crashed his motorcycle 4 times. Derrick loves craft beers, arts and crafts, and water crafts. Please don’t Google Derrick. His online presence is embarrassingly bare.

 

Deep Cut Recommendations

As we all know, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes and awesome places like that will always give you some recommendations… People who liked THIS also liked THIS. Your Most Excellent Hosts have their own recommendations, perhaps a bit further off the beaten track.

Our guest Derrick is sticking with the idea of musicals where everyone is on drugs and therefore recommends Jesus Christ Superstar

Nathan is sticking with the idea of cop cars and ever escalating escapades and therefore recommends Hot Fuzz

Krissy is sticking with the idea of putting the band together and making friends, and enemies, along the way and therefore recommends the Muppet Movie.

What’s Up Next?

Next up we have guest comedian and one of the awesome coordinators behind Big Pine Comedy Festival, Mr Buck Newman and the Naked Gun: From the Files of the Police Squad from 1988.

IMDB says… Incompetent police Detective Frank Drebin must foil an attempt to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II.
