Ian was the funniest guy I knew. He had such diverse talents, from impressions to writing.
While living in Toronto Ian did Second City Training at the John Candy theatre.
Bruno as he was known in the Dropouts http://goteamdropouts.com/bios.html did so much. From booking gigs, to hosting to performing in scenes. His characters were amazing, just a few examples below that always killed.
- Alejandro – the sexy latin lover. I always loved him in Party Quirks, his famous line “I wonder who it is, I hope it is a lady.”
- Dr. Phil – setup as a new guessing game, Ian took off Dr. Phil so well, “See what your problem is… “

Ian even directed and filmed some sketches
Ian worked me with a troupe in Toronto called the Sunshine Sandwiches and performed at a few shows.
Ian was a prolific writer, he wrote a couple of large volumes of sketches along with the other Dropouts as well as wrote his own Zombie British Sex Farce “Survive Another Day”. He was also working on an Improv Manifesto for students of improv much like Tao of Jeet Kun Do by Bruce Lee.
