About Terence Berger of Dag3 Presents The Good Comedy Show 3
Despite comedian Terence “Berger” Berger’s playful smirk and avant-garde sense of humor, this funny man’s passion for overcoming obstacles is no laughing matter. One of eight children raised by a single mother, Berger learned to use laughter to weather some of his darkest moments. From near poverty and homelessness to academic struggles, Berger has been sharing his story of triumph through comedy to packed audiences for years.
Berger, a native of Kansas City, Missouri, is a regular at the Kansas City Improv, hosting shows with such well-known comedians as Guy Torrey, Gary Owen, Shorty Ward, Tommy Davidson and Tony Rock, to name a few. In addition to sharing his unique brand of comedy at local comedy stages, Berger hosts “The Berger Variety Show” on Time Warner Cable Public Access Channel 18, showcasing original skits, stand-up bits and pranks.
All jokes aside, Berger’s quest for knowledge and enlightenment has been a mainstay, as he holds a bachelor of arts in film and mass media and a master of arts in liberal studies from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Berger is a grant recipient of the Robert Altman Emerging Filmmakers Fund through the Kansas City Film Commission. The zany comic is slated to begin a regional college tour this year, sharing his story of triumph over adversity through stand-up and sketch comedy.
