The Final Countdown for The Time Traveling Troupe!

It’s the final hours for the fundraising for The Time Traveling Troupe. To be honest, I had lost hope on the Kickstater and started work on a Plan B, when this morning Sean Eaton posted on my Facebook wall: “Don’t look now, but you just got mentioned by Neil Gaiman!” I took this screen grab of his tweet:

If you’ve read my about page, you’ll know that Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite writers. He also happens to have written an amazing episode for Doctor Who. I can’t begin to tell you how happy this made me. This is a huge honor and I’m definitely going to send him a thank you gift.

In order to reach the goal at this point, about 135 people need to pledge for the $30 DVD. Tell your friends and get them to pledge. It’s been a dream/goal of mine to have professional DVDs/Blu-rays of something I’ve created. I can’t make them unless the goal is reached on Kickstarter.

The plan is to build the time machine on May 20th. I’m also going to film some prequel movies to promote the show and entertain everyone until the show’s premier. I got a ton of work ahead, especially if I don’t make the Kickstarter goal, but it’s going to be an amazing journey.

Crazy, Wild Improv Challenge – Juicy!


The Time Traveling Troupe, Raychel Winstead, Kyle Brower, and Jessi Kyle, star in this wild improv challenge where they’re in an alien invasion movie, however, the movie keeps changing genres.

Dennis’ Commentary: We filmed this challenge after we did the pitch video for the Time Traveling Troupe. As were were filming this challenge, a cop showed up to close the gates for the park where we were. Thankfully, I heard him and rapped up the video and the cop was super, super cool and didn’t interrupt us and let us finish. Yay for cool cops!

Introducing my latest show, The Time Traveling Troupe!

The Time Traveling Troupe is an improvised comedy series inspired by Doctor Who following the adventures of The Traveler, staring Raychel Winstead, and her two companions, Travis played by Kyle Brower, and Tiffany played by Jessi Kyle. Watch our terrific pitch video above introducing the cast, the show, and our plea for your support to make The Time Traveling Troupe series a reality!

The show will be filmed with multiple cameras in front of a live studio audience at Reduxion Theatre in Oklahoma City. At the beginning of each episode, The Traveler will ask for three suggestions from the audience to set the story for the show. Each night they will be joined with various talented improvisers to play supporting characters. The first season will feature 12 episodes with a run time of approximately 30-minutes. Episodes will be available to watch for free in full via YouTube for everyone.

Since time is currently in flux, I need your help to make absolutely sure this show happens. I’m trying to raise $5,000 to rent the theatre space, have insurance, hire bodyguards, buy costumes, build set pieces, construct the time machine, pay the actors, wombats, get supplies, etc. If I surpass the goal, I’ll be able to do more and pay everyone better for their hard work. In exchange for your support, you’ll receive a gift. Gifts are cool.

Jessi, Kyle, Raychel and I are all incredibly excited about the show. I hope you make a pledge. I’ve been wanting to do do a “filmed in front of a studio audience” show for some time now. I believe this will be a first in Oklahoma City’s (certainly in some aspect).

Go visit the Kickstarter page to pledge your support! Then like the Facebook page and the Google+ page and then tell your friends!
