Episode 31: Dave Beck
Dave Beck worked his way up from abject poverty to become president of the most powerful union in the country. He shaped the city the way he wanted it to be, until he abused his power and lost it all.
David Gordon was raised on Vashon Island, learned improv in Tacoma, and now performs with groups around Seattle including ComedySportz, Split Second Improv, and Jet City Improv. Sometimes he improvises from the sound booth and calls himself a technical improviser. Sometimes he writes plays and calls himself a playwright. Once he had a “wizard rock” band and called himself ‘Alas Earwax!’.
