I Don't Know Dick
Bob Wiltfong doesn’t know Dick.
A few years ago, an old man named Dick gave Bob love-letters he wrote to his sweetheart in World War II. Each performance, the audience helps Bob read one of those letters out loud. He then uses that information to inspire him in a one-person improv show that may just prove we all know more about Dick than we ever thought possible.
CAST LIST (with bio): Bob Wiltfong
You may know Bob Wiltfong from his work as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart or as “The World’s Greatest Spokesperson in the World” for Nationwide Insurance in TV commercials. Bob came up in improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City right when it started. His teachers included Amy Poehler and Armando Diaz. While there, Bob’s Harold team, Neutrino, invented a new improv form called the “Neutrino Video Projects” – which landed them headline slots at HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and The Fringe festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2004, the Chicago Improv Festival awarded Neutrino its “Improv Group of the Year” award. Bob moved on to become one of the founding performers at The People’s Improv Theater in New York and his shows there helped grow The P.I.T. into what it is today. Bob is proud to say that he’s a graduate of The Conservatory program at The Second City in Chicago and he’s currently going through The Groundlings system here in L.A. If you like awards, Bob has them too! In his previous career as a TV news reporter and anchor, Bob won several Emmys for his on-camera work and was awarded the prestigious Edward R. Murrow and Peabody Awards as well.
