This paper people craft is Todd Stashwick, created by sally. Todd Stashwick is an American film and TV actor. He is perhaps best known for his role of Dale Malloy on The Riches until its cancellation, and for his numerous guest roles on various TV shows.
Stashwick was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in the suburbs right outside of the city. As a child he always had one eye on trying to make people laugh and working in Chicago at "The Second City". Soon after graduating from Illinois State University, he began performing at several local improvisational theaters and was quickly hired to tour with "The Second City" all over the country. Following productions at The Second City Detroit and The Second City Northwest, he moved to New York. Todd was up for Saturday Night Live the same year as fellow Second City Alumni David Koechner joined the cast.
While in New York he formed a company of improvisers and began staging the underground critically acclaimed Burn Manhattan all over the city under the direction of Shira Piven. Quickly, work in television and film drew him to Los Angeles where he shot several pilots and series including recurring work on the series M.D.s, American Dreams, Rodney and Still Standing.
Stashwick has had several guest-starring roles in numerous television shows. He had a significant supporting role on The Riches playing Minnie Driver's nefarious cousin Dale until its cancellation in September 2008. Stashwick preempted the official announcement that the show was canceled when he announced the cancellation on his MySpace blog on September 25, 2008.
Stashwick currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife Charity, whom he married in 1997 in the middle of Times Square, in front of twenty close family members and friends. The couple has a son and daughter who are ten years apart in age. Their household also includes an English Bulldog, three cats and a Conure.
Despite his extensive television and movie work, he has not abandoned his love for improvising and performing. He was involved in improvisational school/theater in North Hollywood called The Hothouse. He has also taught and performed his style of organic improvisation internationally, directing the Liverpool based spontaneous theatre troupe Hoof!. He co-created The Doubtful Guests, a Victorian themed macabre improvised cabaret longform that performs every October. He also performs a freeform improvised jam called Mayfly once a month at the Los Angeles improv studio Bang. He continues to travel the country teaching his philosophy of organic improvisation.
