The Improv Players

This show is all about the improv comedians. Meet the players who have graced our stage to make some comedy greatness. In order of appearance…

David Bruzek

David showed up the Friday before our first recording day to help design and build the set.  His energy on the show set a high bar for the others to reach.  David left Minnesota, but we’re hopeful that he’ll come visit the show in the future.

Laura Critzer

Laura is an actress whose talent spans many fields, such as stand-up comedy, improv comedy, film acting and crew.  Laura has appeared many times on the show.

M.A. Doerfler

M.A. is an actress and long time supporter and regular of the show.  Not only does she attend every recording day, she stays for the entire day contributing her laughter and talent.

Diane Visser

Diane is an actress who has worked on many local films.  She’s been a long-time supporter of the show and has appeared in many episodes.

Rebecca Ross

Rebecca is an actress from White Bear Lake Minnesota. She has acted mainly on camera for short films including student films and film competitions (such as Z-Fest and the 48 Hour Film Fest) and also as an improv actor for both Scenes From A Hat and the Murder Mystery Company. When not acting, she enjoys going to music concerts and festivals, hiking, hanging with friends, cosplay, video games (favorites include the Mario, Zelda and Resident Evil franchises) and all types and genres of music (including playing the guitar). She is also going for a bachelor’s in teaching special education, which she will complete later this year.

The Crew

Without the help of these generous people, the show would not be possible. The crew is made up of volunteers, some new and some seasoned. The show always welcomes anyone wishing to gain experience in TV production.  From helping with buiding and decorating the set to operating video and audio equipment.  We couldn’t do it without them!

Cherelle-Renée Childs

Camera

Cherelle-Renee didn’t want to be the only one of her siblings who had never done behind-the-camera work on a film set, so she convinced the powers that be to train her in on the cameras. She had a wonderful time, and the rest of the crew didn’t seem overly annoyed by her directionally dyslexic ways, so she decided to continue.
