Meet The Instructors

Daun Thompson
Years of acting in both film and theatre have been paramount in launching Daun onto the comedy stage (incidentally, without a helmet, resulting in a nasty concussion). Being a funny girl is a full time job. A job that she hopes, one day, will come with dental benefits and a 401K. Unlike her work, she is biodegradable, yet flame retardant. And gentle to the touch. Her goal in life??? For strangers to approach her and ask “Didn’t you used to be somebody?”
