David Webster

David Webster, Whole World Theatre founder, creator, and original artistic director (1993-2004), trained with several improv comedy troupes in Chicago including The Second City.  In 1992, Webster left Chicago to live in a tent on the  island of Kauai for six months where he designed the original vision for Whole World.   In 1993, Webster moved to Atlanta.  He began teaching his style of emotional, experiential, and often times long form improv.   After several months of training, Webster named the group Whole World Theatre, and booked the troupe for their first performances at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, Georgia.   In December 1994, Webster  wrote two plays, “Pimps, Queens, and Dope Fiends” and “Bloodclot Bingo,” He directed and emceed two nights per week of improv and produced a dinner theater of “Crimes of the Heart” on Saturdays.   By 1995, Webster secured Whole World’s present location at 1216 Spring St.  For seven years, he continued to write, direct, teach and emcee the shows.  By 1999, Whole World was making comedy for television.  Webster sold the show to Turner South.   Webster was fortunate enough to write and direct a 35 mm piece for TBS which won two Regional Emmy Awards.  Eventually, the show was sold to Castle Rock Entertainment.  In 2002, Webster started a new troupe back on the island of Kauai.  In 2004, he and Jennifer Horne moved to Virginia where she runs a comedy troupe and Webster makes independent films.
