Dick Beck is a writer/performer forged in the mountains of Big Bear, California. He took his first improv class in 2009 after spending two hours going down a Wikipedia clickhole and ending up on the UCB Website. He has been in the UCB advanced study program since 2010 and has harassed several talented people into coaching and performing with him (Shoutout to Break Check, The Kingdom, Scapeghost, Goshzilla, Seinfeld:The Purge, Tonya Harding: The Musical and Hotbox the Whip) at various improv and sketch shows all across Los Angeles. He is also a regular writer on 'Chris and George in the Morning' and was also privileged to be placed on 1st Generation Mess Hall team 'Junk Science'. He's stoked return to Mess Hall with his 3rd Generation team 'LaserDisc' and can't wait to eat lemon bars regularly with them in the Inner Sanctum Cafe.
