Has lived in the shadows of a greater star. This all started on September 8, 1998, for on this day Mark McGwire broke the homerun record. McGuire thought long and hard about changing the spelling of his name. Is a McGwire the better McGuire? He was tormented about this for years and needed an outlet. That’s how he found comedy. Now he owns ComedySportz St. Louis and he’s the real MVP!
Is a professional hugger by day and Artistic Coach of CSz St Louis by night. Mike was born with the ability to start over in any life situation. Kind of like the movie Groundhog Day, but instead of reliving the same day over and over, when he makes a mistake, he simply apologizes and asks for another chance, stating that he is a NEW Man, a Mike NEU-MAN! Also, keep an eye out for his appearance on COPS, where he talked himself out of charges using his powers. If you’ve seen Mike perform, give him another chance, after all, he is a Neu-Man!

“Not that” Paula Dean is known for endless supply of energy. Paula has run across the continental US from coast to coast, pulling a Locomotive with her teeth.

“Negative” Nancy Nigh received her moniker when she was born, and her official weight was -2lbs. Defying the laws of science, Nancy was regarded as a modern miracle. It was later discovered that the scale that was used to weigh Nancy at birth had a matchbook placed under the scale which was placed there by Nancy’s Uncle, who believed the hospital bill charged by the pound for deliveries. The name stuck and, despite working for a company that teaches to yes and, Nancy is still synonymous with negativity. She’s nice though…

Kim went on to win the Pro Bowl for her team, which people don’t remember, because it’s the Pro Bowl, and who watches that? Marshall Faulk went to interview her, but Kim threw him off by wearing a fake moustache, and changed her name to Jim Japoris, if anyone asks.
Was created by a cartoon artist. The ageless cartoon boy longed for a life that was 3 dimensional. John wished upon stars, bought a bicycle pump, ate his weight in cookie dough, and hired a personal trainer, and nothing seemed to help John become a real person. It wasn’t until John started working for ComedySportz at the Sugar Cubed that he found the answer to his problems… Soda. Soda pumped John full of carbonation, and he finally knows what it’s like to be a real-life boy. All John asks is that no one points sharp objects at him.

Dustin “The Brain” Reppell started a career in comedy in 1997 where he optimistically bragged about where he saw himself in three years. Twenty two years later, and still living in his parents’ basement, Dustin was lead to believe by his parents that the Y2K bug was the nightmare we were warned about in 1999. Today Dustin spends the majority of his time warning teens about the dangers of pursuing dreams near the change of a millennium and has been working on a software program to save the future victims of the Y3K crisis. If you see him at ComedySportz, don’t bring up Y2K, unless you have a couple hours and drink.

Is much more beloved than the cheese named after him. Born in the Duchy of Limberg, he was raised as a master scientist with a passion for making cheese. In his lab, he housed many different sources of bacteria. One day, his apprentice mixed up some vials and mixed Brevibacterium linens with cow’s milk. The resulting product? Limberger cheese. This made Lynn a billionaire almost instantly as France had never had such a delicacy. Lynn now lives with his two French bulldogs, Gouda and Cheddar.
Has looked up to Pun-ky Brewster his whole life. He even left his home as a child in search of his own apartment, which he found in Pun-ta Cana, Mexico.

He has now decided to pursue a new dream of comedy – puns intended.
Got her nickname “Ole blood and guts” not from being a vicious killer or for a love of Halloween, but because she has poured over the entire catalogue of Grey’s Anatomy 150 times to date. She has written Shonda Rhimes countless times about where she would like the series to go and who she thinks is better – it’s McDreamy. When asked how she would like the show to end, she can be quoted as saying that “hospitals never close so this show should never end.”

Is the original Millenial. Born in the year 1000, he was starting trends well before pumpkin spice lattes and long beards. In 1023, he invented paper money. Around 1050, he changed warfare forever by introducing the now revered crossbow. He knew he had set the world on a good course with those inventions, so he has spent the remainder of his life painting large canvases of zebras.
After watching a small cocoon for six years, we were surprised when an Ivey March emerged. She immediately spread her wings and flew away and remained unseen for 29 years.

Since then Ivey has decided to retire her wings and spends most of her time trying to figure out CrossFit’s appeal.

After years of study, scientists have finally confirmed that Karen Schubert is not one person but ten tiny people. A current theory is that when Karen performs an improv scene, she is not inventing a new character but letting one of the tiny people take control. Despite these challenges, Karen graduated college with a degree in Hooliganism and a minor in heckling chess games. The ten people that make up Karen couldn’t be prouder of Karen accomplishments.
Locals claim to have seen a meteor crash to Earth six years ago. While investigating the meteor they heard singing and then quickly noticed a baby who would someday be known as Jonathan Garland.

Was lured out of the forest with the promise of Hallmark Channel holiday movies. She spent 8 months catching up on every single original made-for-tv holiday movie and when the last movie was over, she sat in front of the tv for 68 hours in silence. She hasn’t mentioned the movies since and neither have we. She mostly spoke in grunts after being found but after observing an improv class, she began speaking. Since then she has revealed she spent her time in the forest doing improv. She has the ability to improv with anyone and anything.
Came to town on Mary Poppins’ umbrella. Although she won’t tell us how she ended up with Miss Poppins’ umbrella, we can’t help but assume her reasoning is nefarious. While she has remained tight lipped on the umbrella, she is more than willing to share her conspiracy theories dealing with the cover up of Big Foots and leprechauns. She has promised that Big Foot will reveal itself to the public in the next 10-100 years. Only time will tell if she is correct but we are thinking she isn’t.
