 Steve Corning puts dinner on the table for his two cats by making a fool of himself on stage professionally. A Maine native and Celebration Barn alum, Steve has performed 700 shows across the US and internationally as a juggler and improviser. When he is not making stuff up or balancing ladders on his face, Steve writes electronic music, and feeds his crippling roller coaster addiction.

Dennis Hunt, codename: Dennis Hunt aka “that guy named Dennis....Hunt”, first performed in his mother’s womb years ago. After that it was pretty much all fun and games. Actor/improviser/stand up Dennis has watched them all. If you are reading this then Steve’s plan is almost complete. Please stop him!

Samuel L. Kuykendall has been performing improv on stage for nigh on close to 10 years. Perhaps best described as a 37 year old, 6’1”, heterosexual Male, Samuel could also be called Caucasian. In addition to performing improv with four different comedy troops in Maine, Sam is also an artist, writer, and a musician. These pastimes help immensely to alleviate a chronic allergy to money that Samuel seems to have.

Bob LeBlanc can best be described using either words or interpretive dance.
