Meet Our Performers

Vilification Tennis wouldn’t be anything at all if it weren’t for our talented group of performers. Below, you will find a headshot of each cast member along with a little bit of their background. Feel free to browse through and find out more information about your favorite Vilification Tennis performers.


Tim Wick

The Judge

Tim joined the cast over 20 years ago. At first, he was a vilifier but it quickly became clear that he had little aptitude for the work so he started judging matches instead.  It was there his true talent began to shine through.  Nobody can sit in judgement over the talent of others quite like he can.  He makes the job look easy but that's only because it is.

Matt Allex

Molly Glover (Olive)

Sassy Pants

Molly Glover is VilTen's resident pantsless goofball will do anything and everything for a laugh. Molly won the 2012 Amateur Show, one year after her husband Nick won it. While on the BLB stage, she's licked whipped cream off Spencer, gotten tased, worn a sign as a bra, performed while covered in stage blood, choked on marshmallows, been practically naked, and ridden a giant inflatable penis. In other words, she's living the comedy dream.

St. Manna the Destroyer

Shinsbane

There did St. Manna appear unto them in many places; the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, at the Bryant Lake Bowl, and wheresoever a man's slutty wife need be scorned.  When the time of CONvergence is upon us, always is The Destroyer garbed in fabulous raiment.  And just as the raiment be glorious, contrariwise so the words St. Manna doth speak are base and carnal." Here ends the reading.

Jeff Neppl

The New Guy, Sparky, Skippy, Tiger, Sport, Dork, Hey You In The Skirt

Jeff was born on the streets.  Well, actually he was born on "A" street.  Well, actually he was born in a hospital.  He's not entirely sure how he ended up as a cast member of an insult show, as he is not a mean person by nature, but he makes up for it by drinking several cups of "rage tea" prior to shows which allows him to spew forth the bile and vitriol required by the demanding Vilification Tennis audiences.  He writes biographies of himself in the third person, is one of the best puppeteers in the Twin Cities, and is exceedingly humble.
