As the character “Sweaty Dee”, I involve the audience past the initial offering – think of an obnoxious, know-it-all uncle who imposes his own personal TED talk at a family gathering. The fourth wall doesn’t exist during this solo improv act. I’m very physical, using whatever makeshift props are immediately on hand – and I sing, answering questions with impromptu rock songs. It’s super chaotic fun!
Sweaty Dee will perform in the 10:00 PM block on Saturday, August 15.
