Behind the Scenes
Shot on location at the Second City Cleveland. George is an instructior at Second City and on the main stage cast, David Schmoll is the music director, and Quinn Patterson is on the Main Stage Cast of Second City. We lovingly used a dolly from Tavares Teleproductions, transported by Holly Magnani's car.
George Caleodis was born and reared in Steubenville, Ohio (home of Traci Lords), and earned a Master of Science degree in Mathematics from The Ohio State University. Caleodis made his improvisation and comedy debut in Columbus, Ohio and has performed with Cabaret Dada, Midwest Comedy Tool & Die and The Slipshod Theatre Company. His stand-up credits include opening for Rita Rudner, Larry 'Uncle Lar' Reeb, and The Righteous Brothers.
Quinn Patterson is an Elyria native, working as a stand-up comedian at the Improv in Cleveland's Flats. Quinn actually is an African American, this is not a special effect.
David Schmoll brings more than 20 years of professional touring and recording experience to northeast Ohio's theater community. An accomplished musician, producer, and teacher, he is equally at home on stage, in the studio, or in the classroom. He has served as music director for Cabaret Dada Improvisational Theater, The Cleveland Play House Reading Company, Habitat For Insanity and Girls With Big Wits. Dave can also be heard rocking out on the new studio release from Kent-based acoustic funk duo 2 Skinny Dorks.
Bret has never been an extra before, but he sure did a great job sitting perfectly still. He could play a corpse.
