Bringing Comedy Alive with BYOI!
This interactive improv show welcomes voluntary audience participation! You can participate in one of three ways: applaud for a scene you like, yell out fantastic suggestions, or if you feel you’re ready, jump up and get involved with us on stage.
BYOI was voted Best Comedy in Rhode Island multiple times by Rhode Island Monthly Magazine and Motif Magazine. During the pandemic, the cast members performed live online, Friday nights for/with families, and adults!
BYOI is the creation of owner and producer Daniel Lee White, originally from Niantic, CT.

The Bradley Schools are private, school-funded, educational programs for children and adolescents whose psychiatric and behavioral needs cannot be met in a public school setting. There are six schools in total – 4 in Rhode Island and 2 in Connecticut – currently serving between 350-400 students each year.
The mission of the Bradley Schools is to provide innovative, comprehensive, and individualized educational services. Our goal is to enable students to achieve to their full potential, resulting in academic and social-emotional success as they transition into their future. The philosophy of the Bradley Schools is to provide exemplary educational and therapeutic services to students to support their successful return to a less restrictive setting within their community.
The Bradley School – New London Regional was the first Bradley School in Connecticut and has since been joined by the smaller, affiliated Bradley School Windham County. Students whose behavioral health challenges require an intensive level of specialized instruction and intervention are referred by their public school district. The two Bradley Schools in CT currently support students from 21 Connecticut communities.
Bradley Schools work with students with a variety of social, emotional, and behavioral issues. In addition, we service students with developmental disabilities eligible under Alternate Assessment. Diagnoses include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Emotional Disturbance, Intellectual Disabilities, Multiple Disabilities, Other Health Impairment, Specific Learning Disabilities, and Traumatic Brain Injury.
We are deeply grateful for philanthropic support that allows the Bradley Schools the flexibility to augment our innovative programs to directly meet the needs of our current student population.
