From elsewhere on the Web, these comments:

“William is the best kind of improviser: one willing to gleefully push his partner off into the deep end of uncharted waters, but willing to jump in immediately after. Most of the pirate’s booty as well as shark bites I garnered in my improv career I owe to this man.” –Tim

“Tim… you are a very talented man… and your exploration of story is one of the things I most admire about you. That and your 23 inch waist.”  –William
