Chad has the gift of embellishment. He uses everything that happens to him as an anecdote to amuse the people around him. Outside of taking workshops from the likes of Del Close, Mick Napier, Armando Diaz, Charna Halpern, Bob Dassie, David Koechner and Adam McKay, Chad has shaken hands with Conan O’Brien. When he’s not improvising, he likes to hang out with this wife and 2.5 kids.

Dale was also selected to represent Dallas in a 2005 World Cup Comedy event. Dale works as a concept director for a premiere Dallas advertising agency.
Emily comes to us with more than 15 years of improv experience. This has allowed her to expand her repertoire of characters from “lady with a mixing bowl in her hand” to “lady hailing a taxi cab.” It’s a must-see! With her husband Dale, also an improviser, you can bet they have the funniest household in America. At least that’s what their dog, Schmax, tells us. Emily is an area director for a non-profit organization and hopes to one day save the world… from germs.

Todd started improvising in 1998 with Freudian Slip. Todd has shared the stage with the likes of Bill Cosby, Jimmy Fallon, Bill Engvall, and Jeff Foxworthy, among others. Todd’s background includes training from The Second City, Chicago’s IO, The Annoyance Theater, and tutelage from Gary Austin, founder of The Groundlings in LA. By day, Todd is an actor represented by The Mary Collins Agency, which means you might have seen him on the tube or heard him on the radio. By not day, Todd rides bikes…a lot…in spandex…a lot.
Danny has been doing comedy for since 2002. He started with Texas A&M’s Freudian slip in 2002 and joined P-dogs in 2006. He’s studied at the Improv Olympic and Annoyance Theater in Chicago. In 2009 he took a break from the dogs to pursue a career in Chinese food. It took more than a minute, but after 4 years he came to the realization that selling Seabass and doing freelance improv in Austin just wasn’t for him. He has since rejoined Pavlov’s Dogs and currently resides somewhere in the DFW metroplex. Your best chance of getting in touch with him is by going to the nearest golf course and meowing like a cat. Or maybe just coming to a show.
