Patrick French

Patrick French has been performing as an actor and improviser throughout the Boston area since 2002. He was a member of the ImprovBoston Mainstage from 2007 – 2012, before stepping down so he had more time to change his kids' diapers. Prior to that, he performed with the Improv Asylum’s NXT cast. He has also performed in a number of ImprovBoston showcase shows over the years, including GoreFest, Crime Solving Bear & Oceans 2. He currently produces and performs in “The Angriest Show in the World,” a completely make-believe anger management seminar that inevitably spirals out of control. His awards include ImprovBoston's 2005 "Rookie of the Year," and Best Actor at Boston's 2010 48-Hour Film Festival. He has been known to get occasional commercial work - you may have seen him and heard his voiceover in numerous Papa Gino's pizza commercials, where he masterfully played the role of a hapless suburbanite whose grill has caught on fire.

I will set you up for success, I will give you the tools to achieve what I am asking of you, and I will assume you can do this - because if we have the right approach you can.

Danny Balel

Teaching Style: I believe in organic discovery, emotional commitment, and allowing yourself to be goofy onstage and off. My style reflects these three components. Through side coaching, targeted exercises, and the release of laughter my classes focus on breaking down inhibitions and trusting your instincts. It is my core belief that being silly is as useful as being in control.

Bio: Danny Balel has been teaching and performing for over ten years. He teaches Theater at Clark University, and he has taught in the public schools of Worcester, Boston, Cambridge, and beyond. In addition, Danny teaches at Improv Boston, everything from weekly classes, workshops, to birthday parties. Currently he is a member of Improv Boston's Touring Company and Mainstage. He also directs the Top Shelf team Ghost Light, The Greg Show: A one Man Improvised Extravaganza, and Something Wicked: Improvised Shakespearean Comedy. Danny has performed with Kevin Macdonald and Joe Bill, and has taken workshops with Mike Birbiglia, Liz Allen, and Susan Messing. He believes that improv should be playful, focused, and above all fun. He lives in Davis Square, Somerville, and enjoys candied yams, big dogs, and baking. Danny was also interviewed by Jimmy Carrane for the Improv Nerd podcast (http://jimmycarrane.com/podcasts/122-danny-balel/).
