Then I noticed that AradhanaTiwari and Zac Alfson were sitting at the table in front of me, and Beth Marshall, Dewey Chaffee and Douglas McGeoch were seated at the table to my right.
Dewey Chaffee has just taken a huge plunge by not renewing his contract to work at Disney. He certainly could use the boost a grant would offer now, but the panel seemed convinced that his character Wayburn Sassy was fully developed with no room for growth. One panelist seemed to think Wayburn just offers shock value, but Dewey explained that the character gives people a way to laugh at bigotry and narrow-mindedness.


Know Theatre - The Screw You Revue

www.knowtheatre.com [cached]

Screw You Entertainment is the blood, sweat, and tears of partners, (on stage as well as in life), Dewey Chaffee and Douglas McGeoch.
Dewey and Douglas finished their 2011 Summer Tour by performing a 5 week held-over run of The Screw You Revue at The Madeira Room in Provincetown, Massachusetts. In addition to the company's flagship show, Dewey and Douglas have written and toured three other original shows. Dewey Chaffee (Wayburn Sassy/Lady Winifred) describes himself as an "accidental comedian", having discovered his talent late in life. He has since performed stand-up comedy at The Palm Beach and Miami Improv, provided audience warm-up for Nickelodeon Television and opened for comedian Kevin Pollack. Dewey honed his craft of improv as a street performer at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. Tired of corporate censorship he left Walt Disney World in 2010 after 23 years of entertaining countless guests. As the intolerant Wayburn Sassy, AND the deceptively innocent Lady Winifred, Dewey has created a world where no topic is off-limits and everyone takes part in the joke. Instead of it's intended purpose, Dewey took one look at Douglas' legs and proudly pronounced, "I can make money off those. Dewey quickly transformed Douglas from chorus boy into a leading lady, the likes of which the world has never seen. In 2010, Dewey and Douglas were both awarded Individual Artist Development Grants from United Arts of Central Florida.

While growing up a "poor white-trash kid" in the Pine Hills neighborhood, Dewey Chaffee knew he was different. Not just because he was one of the only white students at both his middle school and high school.Not just because while his peers were taking the SATs and making college plans, he was deciding if he wanted to work the second or third shift at Circle K. And not just because he was his own caretaker at the age of 16. "I knew I was different because I was nothing like the very people who raised me," says the out 39-year-old actor."They were racist, ignorant and homophobic.And I knew I didn't embrace their ideas."It was because of that disparity, says Chaffee, that he was destined to become an entertainer. Chaffee says that nearly all of his material is influenced by his experiences, from his upbringing in a racist and homophobic environment, to becoming a father and husband at the age of 23, to coming out as gay and leaving his family behind to pursue acting. Chaffee was born in Ithaca, N.Y., to a teenage mother.His family moved around the Midwest, then settled in Pine Hills when Chaffee was 12.At that time, Chaffee realized that his family was extremely intolerant."I remember my uncle telling me to be careful when I went outside because there are a lot of black people in the neighborhood.I also remember being afraid of our gay next-door neighbors because they were 'faggots' who could attack me if I got too close to their house," recalls Chaffee.Chaffee was dealt a rough blow when, at the age of 16, his stepfather committed suicide in the family home."That was another really rough time for me because my mom just crumbled, and if I needed anything at all, it was up to me to provide it to myself.I wasn't getting help from anyone," he says.It wasn't until his first job after high school-working in a retail store at the Magic Kingdom -that Chaffee realized there might be a future for him beyond working at the local Piggly Wiggly. "That's also when I was first introduced to an actual group of gay people, and it wasn't until then that I actually thought about a career as a performer," he says. That's also when Chaffee met his first boyfriend. "I came out for a little while we were dating but then after he broke my heart, I ran right back into the closet," he admits."That's when I tried to do the straight thing."Chaffee quit working at Disney and found himself married at 22, a father by 23 and divorced by 25. Following the divorce, Chaffee decided to give acting another shot and returned to Disney.From there, he made his launch into comedy, impersonating Jim Carrey and other film characters at Universal Studios.He also became an Equity Actor for Disney and produced and starred in his own Fringe Festival show, The Screw You Revue.This year, Chaffee founded Dewey Chaffee Comedy Enterprises, LLC, in hopes of showcasing more of the characters he's created. Chaffee's newest project is Screwged, a holiday version of his Screw You Revue variety show, which features his sidekick Nurse Gracie, John de Orderly and one of his newest characters, Twinky Tim.
