Liz sometimes likes eating and drinking with people. She also likes walking and sometimes sitting. Music is cool. One time her aunt punched somebody at a movie theater. Cool. She gets inspiration from her uncle who rides a motorcycle and teaches math. You’ll love her grandmother who lives life on the edge and is also on the edge of life. Her younger siblings always beat her in arm wrestling. Radical! If given the choice she would accept a back rub.

Nicole Campbell is new to the sketch comedy scene, but has an age old ball with Urban Brain. You may have seen Nicole in the local Denver Theater Scene, mainly at the Littleton Town Hall. Though she spends a great amount of her time at school or acting (and collecting snow globes), she would like to take a moment to thank Mike Miller for everything he has done for the group. Nicole recently performed at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse, thanks to Mike and the Agency. She would like to send a big huge thank you to the featured players for all their hard work and dedication, her parents for their nonstop belief in her and willingness to join any project, her sister for her love and amazing talent and everyone who has paved the way to this hilarious and amazing journey. Thank you!

Hi. My name is Erin Connolly. I am a gen Xer…ish, and I have accomplished more than any human ever has or will in all of time, even up to the point when scientists discover that the time-space continuum is actually a 5-dimensional Hello Kitty. Like, for example, I not only invented the tax code, I also found all the loopholes in it. I know all the languages. Remember the Thigh Master? I built that. One thing that is very important for me is humility. I’d like to thank my parents for making me as amazing as I am. They’re lawyers. No wait. I don’t know. I forgot, but they have really important jobs.

Born in the old, barren, pre-technology age that was 1994, Bohdi Cooper has seen a lot of change, and rolled with it all the while, sometimes even literally rolling on the floor, bawling his eyes out because he wasn’t happy about it. But through it all, he has persevered with a smile as wide as the length of his lips, faltering only when he second-guesses himself, such as write now, at the end of this obvious run-on sentence.

Aside from writing, enjoying, and performing comedy, Bohdi loves to make, DJ, and listen to all sorts of music. Before living in beautiful Colorado, Bohdi hailed from the great state of Vermont.

Zack has an unmatched love for Judge Judy, Diet Coke, and has a special place in his heart for adults who wear braces, and if the only kind of pants to exist were sweatpants, he would be okay with that. If you were to ask him which restaurant in Denver is his favorite, he would probably answer with Sushi Den or something else trendy and cool like that, but don’t listen to him, the real answer is Olive Garden.

Ben might not be one for words but he makes up for it with constant outdoor activity and random sightings in comedy sketches.

All though you may not expect it word is you can catch him taking naked solo laps in broad daylight to finish his epic ski days.
