Tane S. Danger has performed, taught, and directed unscripted theater since 2003. Following college, Tane maintained parallel lives; one foot in the improv and the other in nonprofit or government work. In 2011, he developed a show (alongside Brandon Boat) that brought his two passions together. The result is The Theater of Public Policy (, which brings serious issues and debates to life through improv comedy.

Tane and Brandon subsequently founded their own company, Danger Boat Productions, LLC. In 2012, the two were tapped by the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, to serve as artists in residence to bring improv into the museum.  

Today  a full-time performer, director, and teacher primarily of unscripted theater. While The Theater of Public Policy takes up the bulk of his time, he frequently collaborates with other artists and civic do-gooders for events and productions that bring together big ideas and imaginative comedy.  Tane also enjoys baking bread and bird watching.


After graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2008, Brandon Boat hopped on a jet to South Korea where he taught ELL at a middle school in Busan. Upon returning to America in 2009, he joined AmeriCorps and served with CommonBond Communities. There he assisted residents of affordable housing by providing social services and responsive youth programming.

When his service term finished, he co-developed The Theater of Public of Policy with Tane Danger with whom he later formed Danger Boat Productions LLC. In that time since, he was awarded an Artist Residency at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and continues to work on fun projects with organizations around the state.

In his spare time he enjoys home brewing and traveling to exotic locales.
