This is a new segment we're providing you, our Loyal Fans with, to get to know the ComedySportz players you love watching.
How long have you been improvising?
In high school and college we played short form games (or as we knew them, theater games) but it was just for fun and never for an audience. Then in 2008 I took my first real improv class and was instantly hooked, and was performing improv on the Las Vegas Strip within a year.
What got you wanting to improvise?
Whose Line is it Anyway introduced me to the art, and the combination of entertaining people and the freedom of play is what made me want to perform improv. In improv, you play and create just like when you were a child, so it's very freeing and one of the best releases and therapies in the world.
What is your favorite thing about ComedySportz?
The Loyal Fans. We get folks returning match after match that call back old characters and jokes they've seen from us, and tons of new faces each week, which is not something I see often in Las Vegas!
Favorite Comedy film or TV show?
My favorite movies are Ghostbusters, Anchorman, and anything from Mel Brooks. My favorite TV comedies are Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, and 30 Rock.
+1: Two truths and a lie about you
1) I slept on an active volcano.
2) I went to college with Marilyn Manson.
3) I was a child fashion model.
