St. Donnelly’s Boys Choir
Formed in the bowels of a local Catholic School, this team has been freed from their stint in Cook County only to be call by their former head penguin to complete a Mission from God! With only a full tank of gas, a half pack of cigarettes, and some sunglasses they bring some of the greatest improv, longform and musical, to the secular world. We are St. Donnelly’s Boys Choir!
Marcy and Mary (a.k.a. The Ronnies) are roommates. Their apartment rings daily with the sounds of harmonies and gales of laughter. These two gorgeous, charming, and talented ladies have a repertoire of cover songs and are also quite a comedic duo. Enjoy the sounds of The Ronnies!

I booked and shot a national commercial for Samsung last month. The jury is still out on whether the commercial will actually air as shot (a.k.a. whether you’ll be able to actually see me in this commercial), but either way, it was a fun experience.
Hi everyone! Come see me this Saturday night, June 4, at 11:30 PM at the iO West mainstage cagematch. I’ll be performing with the group ESE. We’ll be doing long-form improv as Latino gangbangers doing long-form improv. I can tell you with absolute certainty that I will look ridiculous.
