Stefan's InfoStefan Gearhart was born and raised in the little lakeside hamlet of Toledo, OH. He moved to Louisville, KY thereafter where he has called it his home since then. Stefan is a massive comic book nerd, especially DC Comics. Improv is in his blood, starting from an early age. From being the class clown to lying his way out of any bad situation to crafting stories about his time with Superman. Stefan has been officially performing improv for the better part of 20 years. He has a BFA in Theatre from Western KY University but it was there that he discovered improv by joining Kentucky’s Longest Running Improv Troupe, Happy Gas Improv. He later went on to learn and perform as much improv as humanly possible, even at one point breaking a world improv record, with improv troupe, SPF7 in Seaside, FL, as they performed 72 straight hours of improv comedy! However, his time as Co-Founder and Performer in Damaged Goods, The Louisville Improv Collective, and Sidetracked Improv has been the best part of his life in improv. Stefan has also been teaching improv for over 10 years, teaching high energy/theatrical improv comedy as well as short form show hosting and runs an improv school called Improv 502 in Louisville.

"I've never seen a short-form troupe play with more joy or energy than Damaged Goods. It's a whole 'nother level of short-form intensity. If this workshop can begin to even hint at what they achieve on stage, it's a can't miss." - PJ Jacokes of GO Comedy!
"Stefan really knows how to relate to you and push you past your fears and misconceptions." - Dr. Michael Pisanni
