Stand Up Comedy

Tristan has been honing his comedic skills for a number of years. He started under the tutelage of Susana Spies attending her  Comedy Playground. While with Susanna he worked hard improving his timing, delivery, improvisation and writing skills. Tristan has written all of his own material and loves to incorporate  dancing and many of his other special skills into his sets. More recently Tristan spent time learning from Jerry Corley fine tuning his writing and delivery skills. See Stand Up Photos and Stand Up Video  

 

Dance
Tristan started dancing at around the age of 5 doing some jazz and ballet, but concentrated most of his energy on tap. Shortly after arriving in L.A he met a B'boy named Casper who became a close friend and roomate. Tristan was very fascinated with breaking and under the tutalege of Casper pursued break dancing. For a number of years he hung out with local bboys dancing on the streets at Hollywood and Highland and down in Santa Monica at the third street promanade. Tristan became a skillful and impressive break dancer at an early age and became known among the breakers as "lil bboy prodigy". He continued trainng formally at the Millenium and various other studios in both tap and break dancing. He was eventually sponsored by an urban clothing company called Panic, participated in the makig of an instructional dance video as well a a rap video, and did a number of demonstrations, promotional work and dance competitions. He was a member of the breaking crew called "Wiz Kidz" and continued dancing professionally into his teens. Today Tristan dances mostly for fun but can still break out a move or two when necessary!
