Brings the funny.
“Venske’s acting anchors the piece solidly. The improv-trained Venske is at his best, unafraid to bust a move or pull out a silly dialect. His intensity is impressive, and each short scene ends on a poignant or fun note.”-DC Theatre Scene
“I can’t say enough nice things about our experience with Michael. From the first conversation we had with him our nerves about hiring a total stranger to officiate our super intimate wedding were alleviated. Our ceremony turned out to be exactly what we wanted – personal, light-hearted, funny, and sentimental. We invited Michael to stay for dinner and for the reception and he was a hit with our whole party – he fit right into the group and had thoughtful conversations with a bunch of our guests. They all made a point to come up to Christian and I to let us know how much they loved him!”-Daniela & Christian, September 2017
