Let’s get one thing out of the way. The owner and the new employee are shacking up. There is favoritism, special favors and repeated abuses of policy. They have kids together and in fact, they live together. It’s Courtney Casperson, the new general manager of Sick Puppies Comedy. She is reportedly married to Casey. She’s funnier than him and has a better sense of business. She’s kind, fair and fun.
She recently made the move away from her career of 15 years so she could help grow Sick Puppies Comedy in a way that Casey could not. She worked from the bottom of her previous company and fought her way to become Director of Finance. Her experience in finance, payroll, inventory, employee management and cash will address many of the long standing issues Casey has created in the last 5 years. With the increase in classes, shows, students, cast and workshops, it was long overdue.
Her experience will add another layer of expertise to the corporate services Sick Puppies Comedy provides. In addition to team building, sales training, public speaking and leadership creation, Sick Puppies Comedy can consult on the corporate books to better assess results and serve our clients on the front and back end of their operations.
We are excited to have some accountability in the company since the owner continues to spend money on twizzlers and spitcoin (as he believes it’s bitcoin). Feel free to congratulate Casey for finally convincing her to join the company. She’s pretty fantastic.
