Biography

TC Cheever has been performing in Boston for over a decade, with a special focus on improvisational theater and comedy and musical theater.

• Co-writer of the book & lyrics for "Lube!", ImprovBoston's 2010 summer musical

• Co-creator, cast & lyricist for "An Evening with Ladley & Craig", an improvised show featuring twelve original songs

• Book and lyrics for ImprovBoston's 2006 Holiday Spectacular, the original musical "What the Dickens?!?.

• Founding member of Boston's first improv troupe specializing in improvised musical theater, Musical Improv Company. MIC performed all around Boston, and at prestigious festivals like the Toronto Improv Festival and the Chicago Improv Festival.

• Has performed with The Gold Dust Orphans, expanded his horizons with the troupe Queer Soup, was seen in the Boston cast of the long-running Chicago favorite Flanagan's Wake, has performed with the Boston Rock Opera, toured with the Electric Carnival with Lollapalooza in 1994, and showed just how much of a geek he is by hanging with The Grand High Council of All Things True.

"Built For Speed" is TC's blog all about the crazy (yet ultimately successful) attempt by a large, woefully out of shape man to train for and run the 2004 Walt Disney World Marathon. TC ran to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, through the Team In Training program. TC again ran as a TNT participant in the 2008 Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee.


TC is not related to Hockey Hall of Famer and legendary Boston Bruins goalie Gerry Cheevers and spent most of the 1970's and '80's explaining this to people. He is also not related (so far as he knows) to any of the authors Cheever; incidentally, while TC has read a book by Ben Cheever, he's not yet read anything by John Cheever or Susan Cheever.

Nor is he related to race car driver Eddie Cheever. In fact, he's never watched a race with Eddie Cheever in it. But if you ever see a shirt with the Cheever Racing logo, please buy him one (size XL).

In his spare time, TC writes his own biography in the third person.
