Hat-Trick

Saturday 1:20PM — 1:40PM Clubhouse Mainstage
Jennifer Perry, Mike Perkins, Paul Brodo, Sharona D'Ornellas, Tim Lang

Hat-Trick has been together since 2014 and this will be our 3rd year at the LA Indie Improv Festival! We all met and started back at UCB and went through that entire program together and still get together every week to hang out and do some improv!

We host and produce monthly shows at The Clubhouse in Hollywood since 2016, and we just had a 2 year run of being the only exclusive improv / stand-up comedy show at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank with our critically acclaimed "Eat, Drink, Improv!" show!

We have all been friends a long time and we share that on stage and with the audience because we're always having an amazing time and bring that energy to every show we do!


Pitch, Please!

Sunday 2:00PM — 2:20PM Clubhouse Mainstage
Bev Bailey, Casey Lawrence, Conor Hanney, Elise Dubois, John DeFour, Leslie Nesbit, Matt Gottlieb, Tess McCarthy

Pitch, Please! creates a fully improvised, a cappella, one-act musical out of thin air. Armed with a single suggestion from the audience, Pitch, Please! delves into scenes, songs, dance breaks, heart breaks and character breaks all without the help of a piano. When it comes time to sing, the improvisers on stage create all the accompaniment they need with their own vocal cords, laying down bass lines, melodies, harmonies, ooo’s, ahhhhhh’s, and beats on the spot. If you liked Pitch Perfect, you’ll love Pitch, Please! If you hated Pitch Perfect, your opinion is wrong.


Coyote

Sunday 2:20PM — 2:40PM Clubhouse Mainstage
Blair Carden, Bridgett Vega, Kevin Kelly, Liz Semenas, Sam Johnson, Sean Ericson Quetulio, Vida Robbins

Coyote is a hot, young improv team coached by UCB Harold team PONY’s very own Matt Apodaca. Yes, they’ll perform an improv form called The Slacker. Yes, they’ll bring an unparalleled firestorm of energy and excitement the likes of which you’ve never seen. Yes, you’ll bust your friggin’ butts watching them play make-believe. Yes, they are in fact one singular coyote. HOWEVER, most importantly, this is your chance to be part of the exclusive group that gets to see these future stars in an intimate setting before you’ll have to pay beaucoup bucks just to be on the same block as Coyote. Come for the make-em-ups, stay for the HA-HA’s.


Orphans West

Saturday 2:40PM — 3:00PM Clubhouse Mainstage
Ariel Taunton, Brandon Truman, Brendan Frost, Chelsea Gill, J.P. Castel, Jillian Fontaine, Lauren Burwell, Michelle Twarowska, Tal Kissos, Vanessa Gamble

From the people who brought you, "It's OK to be seven and sad…" and "I knew a girl who took a desk to the prom" comes a show that we can't predict because well, it hasn't happened yet. But with bisque dealers, confident lepers and a full knowledge of LA zoning laws, it's sure to be…a way to pass the time.


Two BFF’s and a Baby

Saturday 3:00PM — 3:20PM Clubhouse Mainstage
Aurora Simcovich, Donna Thomas, Naomi Simcovich Nwadiwe

We started out performing as two best friends but we could never get through warm ups or a whole scene without the baby joining in. So we asked her to join our team and after finishing her Cheerios she squealed with delight!

You may be wondering who are the two best friends and who is the baby? Well, it depends on the day honestly. So come out to see our show and find out which one of us missed our nap today. Either way it will be fun, funny and the cutest darned set you’ll see all weekend!

(Note to Festival Producers: Please schedule our show before my bedtime because I get very cranky if I don’t get my beauty sleep. Donna)
