Bob Curran

Bob's comedy career started 25 years ago when he performed stand up comedy at clubs throughout the country as he traveled with his job. Bob feels that improv is much more challenging and rewarding versus scripted comedy formats. Bob has tremendous respect for the talent and enthusiasm that his fellow BTB members bring to each performance.

Lauren Henry

Lauren is no stranger to the stage. From being typecast as an old lady in many a high school drama production to playing sax in a 10-piece funk band, Lauren and the stage are old friends. Aside from being the only curly-haired brunette girl in the group, Lauren is Better Than Bacon's resident web-mistress, keeping the website up to date and looking very purple.

Gerry Kniezewski

Gerry started his improv education around the family dinner table with 9 people in attendance every night. After that gig fell apart, he enrolled in improv classes where he met several members of what is now Better Than Bacon. Gerry loves using improv as a creative outlet and a break from his day job in corporate America. He is happy to have his new gig with Better Than Bacon.
