Gavin Speiller wants to take you on a bad first date

Gavin Speiller is a popular improviser in New York City, performing regularly with UCB troupe Death By Roo Roo, as well as independent group Rogue Elephant. But Speiller also is available, ladies! Before you can figure out a way to mashup a Styx song with Go West's "King of Wishful Thinking," Speiller is three steps ahead of you, because he has a new Web series in which he goes on a series of very bad first dates. It's funny to see how in only three tries, he already has gone from horribly awkward to horribly self-absorbed.

Here are his first three bad dates, er, victims. The series is directed by Nate Smith, and produced by Megan Neuringer.
