What do the members of Your Dad’s Friends find funny?
Usually, members of our group laugh when things are going horribly wrong.  It isn’t that we love misery.  It is that we love watching people recover from adversity.

If your troupe was a mixed drink, what kind would it be?
Probably a fruit smoothie.  Topping is the frozen banana.  Cole is the orange juice. Jessica is the strawberries. Tyler is the smug sense self of righteousness that recovering alcoholics feel about drinking non alcoholic drinks at the bar.

What inspires your improv? Is it a constant or changing idea?
We have all been improvising for a long time.  We like to find inspiration in the pleasure of finding new, genuine moments.

How do you guys prepare for a show? Any fun warm-ups or rituals?
Chuy has instituted a no warm up policy.  Really.

What do you like to do outside of improv?
Members of YDF can be found at their second home, The Hideout Pub watching Jeopardy and over tipping.
