Check out the lineup of Big Blue Door’s summer resident improv performance groups, Plan A and Mogli Mogli de Brogli. Then come see their opening Harold Night this Thursday at 7pm, June 18th at Cville Coffee!
Plan A is:
Maya Hislop. Maya is from Brooklyn, NY. She likes to watch every single-camera comedy series she can find and eat pizza. Her real-life career ambition is to be a professor of American and African-American Literature, but she loves to dream about a life in comedy.
Erik Swanson. Erik is a native Virginian. He spent too many years attending VA Tech to be a true resident of Charlottesville, but likes it here anyhow. In real life, he helps people design rotating machinery that spins really fast. He enjoys sailing and hang gliding, but rarely gets to do either.
Mogli Mogli de Brogli is:
Rosemarie Harper. Rose is a mom of three teenagers living in Nelson county and a veteran of Big Blue Door storytelling as well as improv.
Nik Hayes. Nik was born on the outskirts of Richmond in ’91 and graduated from UVA in ’13. He is currently working in a neuroscience lab and is planning on pursuing graduate studies someday. He plans on traveling abroad sooner than that and might hit up a few monasteries in the far out East.
Kirk Martini. Kirk performs on stage weekly at UVa, subjecting architecture students to the stress of structural design. He grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and still misses cool summers and the sound of fog horns. He can sometimes be seen in yoga class at ACAC, working to avoid a faceplant while jumping into bakasana.
Deborah Prum. Debby is a writer and banjo player by way of Dartmouth. Her essays have appeared in the Washington Post and have aired on NPR-member stations. Her shorter fiction and non-fiction have been published all over the place. You can read her stuff here. You can buy her books right now by going here! Her banjo playing, however, is going nowhere.
JP Riggle. JP is a student at a local university, some would say, ‘The University.’ Ask him about his recent trip to Kenya!
Brian Weisbrod. Brian is an improviser best known for his role as Professional Finance/Accounting Robot. His credits include Accounting Analyst at a now defunct electronics retailer formerly based in Richmond, Senior Accountant and Finance Manager at a local University basketball arena, and most recently Assistant Controller at a local software company. He listens regularly to comedy podcasts especially ones on the Earwolf network. In 2015 you can catch him playing volleyball or soccer in his spare time, performing stand up comedy at open mic nights, or most importantly performing improv all around town. And check out his upcoming show OKStupid.
