Ronald Dario is an improviser, sketch comedian and actor from Vancouver, BC and is so good at writing in the third person, you’ll see!!
In this first bit, he will casually mention how he performs improv every Tuesday night with the group of his dreams, Little Mountain Improv. The next thing he will type out will have something to do with teaching improv and sketch classes at Blind Tiger Comedy and how he’s a director of its Diversity & Inclusion Program. This will give him a great segue into letting the reader know that he is also an alumnus of Blind Tiger’s sketch and improv house teams. He’ll end this paragraph plugging in credits like being a cast member at Instant Theatre and being a trainer at Improv Camp.
Ronald—or “Ronaldo” as most people assume it’s pronounced due to his ethnic ambiguity—has written, directed and produced his own live shows and sketch comedy videos. He’s also directed comedy videos for groups like Brunch Comedy. Another thing he’s done is written short comedic pieces that have been published on Vulture (RIP Splitsider) and The Big Jewel.
We’ll take a quick break to give you some time to decide how he’s doing on this bio of himself. Please take your time and be honest.
Even though this entire thing is starting to get long, Ronald—who right now is thinking “ugh, it’s so awkward typing your own name so many times”—will earnestly mention performing at events like Just For Laughs NorthWest, UCB Theatre’s Del Close Marathon, the Vancouver International Improv Festival, and the Vancouver Sketch Comedy Festival. He also performs regularly at local comedy, like The Hero Show, Sidekicks, Bloodfeud, and The List and different comedy podcasts.
Fighting the urge to be self-deprecating because he’s been nice to himself so far, he’ll finish confidently by writing about appearing in commercials for IBM (Fitting Room, Pizzeria, Celebrity Treatment), Squarespace, Just Eat, and Edible Arrangements and comedy projects like Dan Mangan’s More Or Less Variety Show.
