Kurt Bodden // Show: Steve Seabrook: Better than You
Comedian Kurt Bodden plays master motivator "Steve Seabrook," who takes the audience to a safe, nurturing place of empowerment where they can look inside their hearts to examine why they're vaguely disappointing. As Steve says, "I don't want to change you. I just want to allow you ... to blossom into a "you" ... that's Better Than You."
"Best of Fringe" winner at the San Francisco Fringe Festival! Audiences wrote: "He totally nails the character, the presentation, the mind set, and the wee bit of creepiness needed to make the perfect combination. If this were any more real, I would have thought I was in a real self-help workshop" ... "The intelligence and subtlety of the writing and acting make it all the funnier" ... "I especially liked the quiet revealing moments of the workshop leader's insecurities. It is a play, not just a stand-up parody" ... "Some of Kurt's biggest laughs come from his improvisational moments with the audience" ... "Funny, witty, and engaging."
Writer/performer Kurt Bodden has performed improv at the Edinburgh Fringe, BATS Improv, and even the Santa Cruz Improv Festival; trained at The Groundlings (sketch comedy) and Flying Actor Studio (physical theater); and hosted his own live talk show at the legendary Purple Onion (complete with interviews, house band, and cocktails). For "Steve Seabrook," he draws on his own experience leading corporate workshops in team-building and creativity ... plus his time as an erstwhile consumer of personal coaching and transformation seminars. He lives in San Francisco.
