“At first it was very intimidating, I just hadn’t done it in so long, and it was almost like it was brand new again. But once you make the connection with people — with improv that changes everything. It makes it so much easier, when you trust the people you’re working with.”

“He realized one week in comedy was back in his life to stay. “And by the last class I was frantic about how I was going to keep that going.”

Friday Feature: Christopher Klemmer!

8 Jul

FINALLY IT’S FRIDAY! Here’s a little bit about Christopher Klemmer, Portsketch co-creator, director, writer, and all-around know-it-all…

When I was a child, my favorite pastime was: Chucking rocks at hobos. Well that and badminton.

To stay cool in the summer, I: Hang out in the air conditioned paradise that is Sears.

The color to best describe my personality would be: Flesh.

The movie to best describe my life is: The Greatest Story Ever Told

The book to best describe my future is: My First Five Husbands…And The Ones Who Got Away by Rue McClanahan

My favorite part about Portsketch is: Finally being able to use fame and fortune to ruin the lives of those who doubted me in Jr. High school.

Sometimes when I close my eyes I like to pretend I’m: not listening.

The last thing I usually think of before falling asleep is: Wow! I sure changed a lot of lives today. Well done!

If I could have a dozen of something it would be: Depends where I am. There are some instances where toilet paper would make the most sense but most often it would be a terrible answer.

I’m often caught: enjoying Sakkio Japan at the Fox Run Mall food court. You caught me again Mallrats!

I’m most known for: being the nerdy twin on the hit TV show “The Hogan Family”

TONIGHT Chris will host our show at 10:30pm at the Players’ Ring!

Don’t miss out on sketch comedy from Portsketch, and our special guests: improv comedy from Stranger Than Fiction, music by Palefighter, and NH storyteller E. Christopher Clark.

Cast member and writer Mo Conley shares some facts and family secrets…

When I was a child, my favorite animal was a: moose.

To stay cool in the summer, I: eat popsicles.

The color to best describe my personality would be: green, no, blue, no, wait maybe mauve…can I get back to you on that one?

My favorite part about Portsketch is: the part where I get to kill someone .

I have a lot of siblings; their names are: Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter plus six others who prefer to remain anonymous.

My least favorite sibling is: Peter because he’s a troublemaker.

Sometimes when I close my eyes I like to pretend I’m: paying rapt attention.

The last thing I usually think of before falling asleep is: I should have gone to bed earlier.

If I could have a dozen of something it would be: trips to Africa

My dream job is: performing with Portsketch!

People say I look a lot like: Toni Collette.
