Maria Angelella, Vanessa Anton, Alexandra Carbone, Amy Lisewski, Christine Huddle, and Teresa York.

 

 

Welcome, Kat Brown!!

 The Hinges Improv welcomes new member, Kat Brown!!!  How did we find her?  We were sitting in a coffee shop and we noticed her mumbling to herself.  Then she started telling jokes out loud to herself.  That’s when we asked if she was interested in joining. ……… yeah……. that’s how we work.

Kat Brown is a San Diego native, growing up on the beach with only sea shells and sea gulls as her friends, which would explain her need for attention and use of bad puns. She is happy to be back in San Diego after recently graduating from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in theater arts and a minor in woodworking. She is a proud feminist even though she promises she shaves her legs (most of the time).

 She was a member of the UCSC stand up comedy team making it all the way to the final four in the National College Comedy Competition and was a long time member of SheBam, the all female sketch comedy team.
 When not performing with The Hinges, you can catch Kat trying out for plays (and sometimes even getting cast!), bargaining for cheaper prices at garage sales, and scrapbooking. “

Lauren MagnusonLauren hails from all over this great nation, most recently transplanting from Boston. It was there she also learned that driving five miles can and will take 45 minutes and that Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is a basic human right (get with the program, San Diego.)

She has dabbled in theater and acting all her life, with a slowly developing sense that life is inherently funny. It is with this steadfast philosophy that she ventures into the improvisational unknown.

Lauren spends much of her spare time away from improv trying to achieve the bird of paradise in yoga class, perfecting rap songs for karaoke, and watching animal videos on YouTube.
