Dylan Rohde


Dylan's Info

Dylan is the Founder/Director of The Backline Comedy Theatre and the Omaha Improv Fest. Trained and performed at UCB-LA and iO West for years, and was a member of the early LA Indie scene.

Combining UCB and iO has created a style that is both very focused on "Game" but also a necessity for finding "Relationship." The goal is for a realistic and relatable scene, but also finding patterns to have fun with and to get the audience laughing. He teaches the two most important qualities in improv are Trust and Listening.
