Katherine Damm ’13 (The Czar Emerita) joins IGP from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She received a high school diploma from the William Penn Charter School, where she won numerous awards for various things and also served on many important committees. Katherine brings unique skills and significant experience to the group, as well as a perspective. She is excited to be working with The Immediate Gratification Players.
Chris Frugé ’13 is the unholy hybrid of two other IGP members (you will have to find out for yourself which two). Harnessing the power of two improv comedians he is 173% funnier than an average person (27% is lost to heat). He is also dead sexy. And he likes to cuddle.
Martha Farlow ’13 joins IGP from the wilds of Greater Boston suburbia. Her high school improv experience consisted mostly of being picked up and thrown across stage by over-enthusiastic scene partners, but amazingly enough, both her love of the art and her ribcage survived. Besides improvising, her talents include doing crosswords, picking exactly the right-size Tupperware container for leftovers, talking to strangers, navigating unfamiliar terrain, unintentionally adopting the accent of whoever she’s speaking to, and averting disaster at the last possible moment.
Alex McCue ’14 is a baby-faced young man from Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has George Washington’s birthday. He has blue eyes. He is 5′ 9”. He likes to sing and act and talk. He has a large mouth, both literally and metaphorically. He secretly wants Jimmy Fallon’s job, mainly for the opportunity to rap with the Roots during commercial breaks. He is honored to wear the tie.
Andy Boyd ’14 went to Art School in Arizona. If he seems really good at this stuff, that’s probably because of the Art School in Arizona thing. He does a lot of stuff. I’ll throw some at you. He wrote a comic book once. He did a one man show about Mark Twain called “Mark Twain: Blow Your Mind With History.” Ukulele. Stuff like that. Art School stuff.
Ari Brenner ’14 (The Czar of IGP) grew up in the Bay (Yay) Area, where he subsisted on a diet mostly composed of stupid, dumb and a heavy helping of hyphy until age 18. Remarkable experiences of his boyhood include Charizard, 300, and swine flu. He’s over-the-moon-obsessed-secret-poetry-writing-in-the-night in love with IGP and his fellow improvisers.
Ezra Stoller ’15‘s favorite color is beige.
Jake Silberg ’15 tells people that he wants to impress that he’s from New York. In most cases, it’s not true. He keeps himself entertained by singing under his breath, has one dance move, and drinks out of the side of his mouth. He is currently working up the courage to ask IGP to the Freshman Formal.
Libby Coleman ’15
I’m Libby, HI!
I’m crazy, I’m out there, and I love to have fun.
Aaron Henricks ’16 of House Henricks is the firstborn son and true heir of Ser Bret Henricks. To seek truth, lively jest, and plump maidens, he traveled from Florida to the Northlands in his 19th year, where he pledged fealty to the Lords of IGP. In the Battle of Two Hills, his sword made little to no difference in deciding the victor.
Nicole Hirschhorn ’16 hath no bio like a woman scorned. She will be periodically updating this space with her secrets, starting with this one: HI JEFFREY!
