Who do you play in Kapow-i GoGo?: King Cloudberry, ruler of the land.

Describe your character(s) in three words: Trusting, Confused, Excitable

Tell us about Kapow-i GoGo: Kapow-i GoGo is an episodic live-action anime/cartoon/video game chock full of silliness, action, and more silliness.

Describe Kapow-i GoGo in three words: High-octane fun

What’s the wildest costume you wear in Kapow-i GoGo?: King Cloudberry is outfitted with a very fancy turtle shell he wears on his back.

What’s your favorite all-time afterschool cartoon?: Ooh, I was a big fan of "Reboot "when I was a kid, which was the first, fully computer-animated television show.

If you could be a character from any anime or cartoon, who would you be?: Freakazoid, for his seemingly unlimited powers, or Mighty Max, for that sweet, dimension-traveling hat.

Which company member has the most larger than life personality?: Matt Cox. He is, and I fully mean this as a compliment, a combination of Dr. Teeth, Rolf, and Animal from "The Muppets"

Which company member is most likely to get lost in this world?: Me. If I didn't have google maps and GPS I would still be aimlessly driving around NJ in circles.

Most likely to actually be a cartoon character in real life?: I'm going to say Mike Axelrod. When Hiccup gets animated, he gets REALLY animated.

Most likely to be a super villain?: Colin does have that villainous goatee...

Most likely to go on an epic journey?: Amy Jo.

Who’s the best fighter?: Our fight choreographer, Alex Gould.

Revenge or vengeance?: Vengeance.

What would be your victory song?: Any 80s montage song, preferably “You're the Best Around” from “The Karate Kid”.

What is your signature move?: King Cloudberry has two signature moves: Slowly running away from danger and hugging people because he is sad/frightened.

What’s the biggest inside joke at Kapow-i GoGo?: Andy's never-ending succession of quick changes.

What is your favorite moment in Kapow-i GoGo?: Any time I get to act across Colin's General President Thunderbolt.

Why should we come see Kapow-i GoGo?: If you enjoy laughing and/or insanely elaborate cardboard and styrofoam props then you need to see this show.
