Kyle "Kyves" Reeves
Kyle joined the Ship of Fools at the beginning of the 2013 Spring Semester. His nickname, Kyves, came about from a game of One Thousand Blank White Cards at the home of Kate "Nebraska" Borders. Quintin "Qdoba" Hacker created a card called, "Quacker." This forced Kyle to refer to himself in the 3rd person, but by his Wombo name, for the rest of the game. Combining his first and last name, hilarity ensued, and Kyves was born.
Kyle's first show was February 16th, 2013, at the Lower Midwest Regional College Improv Tournament at Comedy Sportz, Indianapolis.

Born in Indy, Kyle lived in Atlanta, GA for a handful of years, and then relocated finally to the small Indy suburb of Zionsville. In high school, he did some things, but none of those things were improv, so butt out. At the end of his Freshmen Spring semester, Kyle saw the glory that is a Fools’ performance, while dining on free Hotbox delectables, at Owen Hall. There, he locked eyes with an auburn headed jester possessed of a rad, jazzy, jive in his step. Then, like an American Band, the Fools proceeded to tear Kyle’s metaphorical Hotel down. Wishing to know more about that randy band of laugh gatherers, Kyle headed to Open Forum. The rest, they say, is history. Nowadays, Kyle takes multitudinous naps and listens to Rush at least once a day so that he may be well rested and inspired enough to improvise at the drop of a hat.
