Although Gorilla has been a favorite format of WIT’s since the early 2000’s, Dru only joined the troupe recently, and has a mysterious past. Her stage debut was in 2013, and she has appeared in several shows since.
Her last big project was All-Star Gorilla in the 2015 International Comedy Festival.
As well as joining regular performers on stage during shows, Dru is very skilled at handing out flyers. Her all-time favorite question, from a slightly over-awed younger member of the public, was “Are you a real Gorilla?” The answer was of course a stately nod of a furry head.
Her favourite type of improvisation is short form, especially short form romantic comedy. Indeed, Dru regards WIT shows as the perfect place to test candidates for the role of “ideal mate”; she has more than once formed an acute romantic attachment while on stage. While none of these relationships have worked out long term, she remains hopeful.
Dru’s interests outside of improv include online dating websites, high fashion, playing the ukulele and bananas.
