Today, we officially welcome Billy Peery to the Sick Puppies Cast.
Billy Peery’s a lot of things: crazy, shameless, disconcertingly obsessed with boy bands. But one of his chief loves is Improvisational Comedy. Given that this is his eleventh year doing it, he can’t imagine being anywhere else.
He’s been the head writer for two sketch comedy clubs, and the leader of his schools’ Improv troupes. Now he feels ready for the next step. To put it in his own words, “Sick Puppies has impressed me since the first day I saw their show. They’re well put together. Somehow they manage to have a high, steady quality in all their shows. I hope I can keep up. Puns can only take a man so far.”
He’s only 21, which means he started Improv-ing in Fifth Grade. “Let’s not talk about that,” was all he had to say about those dark times.
You might recognize Billy by the unnecessary pen name he uses on this website, “Billy Higgins.” And, well, if you’ve read any of his articles, I suppose that’s all you need to know.
Glad to have you aboard, Billy.
