The Foolish Toms is a two man Comedy Troupe consisting of Ryan Brown and Dustin Morby. Ryan Brown once said, "I try to turn all my hobbies into a business". Dustin Morby thought...he might be the right guy! Dustin's previous attempt at a two man improv troupe was very successful but short lived. Ryan and Dustin have been performing together for about 5 yrs with Say What?! Improv, Wichita's Longest Running Troupe!
Dustin Morby started doing comedy in 1st grade when he cracked his first joke in class, was asked to stop but wouldn't/couldn't, and was then pulled from the room by the teacher all the while miming himself being choked so all the other students could see. When he started performing in high school, and realized that was what he wanted to do with his life he started taking workshops and classes. He graduated from Coffeyville Community College with an emphasis on Theatre and Improvisational Comedy. He has been in The Rubber Chicken Factory Improvisational Comedy Troupe, The Average Joes, SAY WHAT?!, and 2 Guys Improv. After 2 Guys Improv broke up he started doing stand up and was a finalist in the Wichita's Funniest Person Contest. Now he is performing in his brand new comedy duo called The Foolish Toms. Since that day in kindergarten, his comedic timing has heightened and his stage presence has captured audiences, in the hundreds of Stage, Improv, Sketch, Stand-Up, and Radio shows alongside the short films and local, regional, and national commercials. Check out some of the stuff he's done on youtube and facebook.

Ryan Brown, from the time he was in high school, has made friends and maintained those relationships by acting like a fool and being silly. Comedy was in his blood, whether it stemmed from the random quotes by his father or by watching the genius that was/is Chris Farley and Conan O'Brien. In 2007, he started attended shows by the comedy group Say What?! and was fascinated instantly and wanted to join. After 6 months of learning, paying his dues and creating a stage presence, he began actively performing for Say What?! Improv and has never looked back.
