ANDY COEN is someone you would consider a person. His comedy style is hard to put into words, but most would agree that he’s moderately funny. He began hanging around Dad’s in 2008, and they’ve had trouble getting rid of him since. He co-owns Automatic Improv, piloted shows for CNN, and currently works at Cartoon Network. Through touring comedy across the nation, he has honed several improv workshops and loves to teach creativity through collaboration. When he’s not picking fights on Facebook, Andy also writes and acts around town. Plus, he’s a super
nice guy who will usually laugh at your jokes!
PERRY FROST performs with Dad’s Garage and is a founding member of the all-girl noir improv team Pussy Pearls: Private Eye. Voted “Tallest Female Cast Member” ever since Eve left. With zero theater training before taking Level 1 improv classes in 2008, Perry humbly defers all blame for her biggest onstage failures to the Dad’s Garage education system. The laughs are all her. Perry moonlights as a makeup artist, which means she takes longer than you to get ready and if you lick your thumb and rub it across her eyebrows, they disappear. Her niche for 3 years total
has been performing in murder mysteries. The only thing that has died in the suburbs more than Perry is punk rock. Feather boas are her favorite fashion accessory, snake substitute, and choking hazard.
