Baby Knuckle is a five man longform improv comedy troupe out of Houston, Texas. Together they will form a completely improvised 20-30 minute Harold-esque playground, kicking it off with an organic free form opening and exploring that connected universe with richer than rich characters that you care for and fear, stories you must hear, and laughs your belly craves. Nothing is as pure as a Baby Knuckle.
Baby Knuckle is: Ryan Heine, Adam Pecht, Nate Suurmeyer, Chad Minchew, and Kelly Harkins. Ryan began studying and performing improv with Houston’s Massive Creativity in 2005. From 2006 to 2009, he studied and performed at Improv Olympic (IO) West in Los Angeles, where he formed Kick Drum Decade, a nineteen (19) time Main Stage Cage Match Champion and champion of the 2008 and 2009 Los Angeles Improv Comedy Festival Cagematch Competition. Ryan returned to Houston in 2009 where he served as a director, instructor, and performer with Massive Improv and Rogue Improv through 2011. Adam is a graduate of Trinity University’s drama program and helped co-found Trinity’s First Time Offenders improv comedy troupe. He also studied and performed with Massive Improv and Rogue Improv from 2008 through 2011. Nate has a great resume in addition to performing with Massive and Rogue Improv but wants to save a detailed description as a short oral presentation at showtime. Chad is co-director of Comedy Sportz Houston, a core component of Houston’s improve scene. Chad and Kellly are veterans of ComedySportz Houston with countless performances as part of the weekly short form troupes and in long form performances with Ampersand and Epilogue HD, among others.
