Dan can also be seen at Second City performing once a month with Hollywood Night Live, and participates in the sketch collaborative Bing Bong Industries. Dan plays improv with NO MAN, host team of the 9 PM Loft show every week at iO West. Dan can also be heard on the forthcoming Made Up Baseball Podcast (MUBP) as creator, writer, and play-by-play announcer.

Jessica Vance is a writer/performer from the eastern half of the State of Texas. After too many years of financial security as a graphic designer and advertising executive, she took an improv class at Houston’s Station Theater, which led to performing with Launchpad (improv) and co-founding The Good Enoughs (sketch). Ten months later, she completed Station’s improv curriculum, packed everything that would fit into her 2004 Honda Civic, and drove to Los Angeles. The Civic did not survive the trip.
During her short time in Los Angeles, she has graduated from the UCB Training Center and is a current student in The Second City Hollywood’s Conservatory Program, as well as Sketch and Improv at The Pack.
Jessica is very excited to write for one of The Pack’s newest sketch teams, Very Famous. Catch them every fourth Sunday of the month.
