Dolan Bloom - Co-Creator/Producer/Executive producer
Dolan is an actor, improvisor, and producer living in Washington Heights.

He learned so much as the show took shape and had a complete blast! Additionally, this spring he co-produced the world-premier of the one-woman show, See You at the Funeral! at LaMama Experimental Theatre Club in the East Village. In addition to producing, he performs long-form improv around the city whenever he can.
