Comedian Tim Krompier (pictured) was once a professional dancer. He breakdanced, did the electric slide and rocked the Hora to put food on the table, but that ended with a nasty car accident in 2003. He's since perfected his writing and standup, and he also works as a staff writer for United Stations Radio Networks, which allows him to leave little bits of humor scattered in all corners of the country's airwaves. Catch his show, "50 Shades of Fatherhood," at Bridge Street Live in Collinsville on Friday.
