nep·o·tism /nepəˌtizəm/ noun
1. the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.
2. An improv duo out of Portland, OR, comprised of Kerry Leek and Noah Goldenberg, who explore relatable characters in unusual situations.
Kerry Leek and Noah Goldenberg are an Aunt/Nephew team who use their close relationship to anchor their scenework in emotions and relationships, all while having a ton of fun. Although they first appeared together on stage in a production of Midsummer Night’s Dream 10 years ago (they were both fairies), they formed Nepotism less than a year ago. It finally occurred to them that improvising together might be a really great idea. This is Nepotism’s first festival together and they couldn’t be more excited to have it be in Portland!
