OoB 2016 welcomes Zach Ward and Emily Holland of DSI Comedy from Chapel Hill, NC DSI Comedy Theater features an energizing and critically acclaimed mixture of improv, sketch, and standup comedy. Here’s why Zach and Emily are the perfect mix for OoB’s Craft Comedy Festival: Their improv is ON POINT.

They’re not only accomplished performers – they also highly value their students and nurture their development. They’re building a community of risk takers. They run an organization called Yes And Life dedicated to helping people live more meaningful lives through uncertainty and improv – check it out here! Emily is a nutella addict. She understands us. Zach and Emily are killing it as performers, teachers, producers, and everything in between. We are SO excited to have them as headliners for OoB...
