MiaB: Where are you from originally?
CF:  St. Cloud, MN

MiaB: What’s the name of your team?
CF: My UCB Teams are John Velvet (Harold team) & Werner Hotdog (we do an improvised documentary). I’m also performing in a bunch of fun/wacky late night shows with rediculous names like Pentagrampa & Alex Fernie’s Champagne Room

MiaB: How long have you been with the UCB?
CF:  
I began studying with UCB about 5 years ago

MiaB: What got you into improv?
CF:  I was doing stand-up at the time and thought if I was funny in class, I would get booked at one of the various stand-up shows at the theater. I found out later that is not at all how they book their shows but by that time I was already in love with improv so it didn’t matter.

MiaB: Who is your favorite improv performer/team to watch?
CF: Short answer: Jim Woods. Long answer: UCB has so many great teams and performers. One of the things I love about DCM is every year I get to see somebody I’ve never seen before who completely blows my mind. In past years I remembering seeing Charlie Sanders, Thomas Middleditch & Adam Pally before they moved to LA and thinking “these guys are really good!” Some of my favorite teams are Sentimental Lady, Last Day of School & Bangarang!

MiaB: What has been your favorite moment doing improv?
CF: Oh man, such a tough question. I love something about almost every show I’ve ever done. I think that’s why it’s so addicting. I definitely remember some moments and shows more than others. I remember almost every moment of my first Harold at UCB with my then team Delicatessen. I remember Hip Hop Penguin crushing our opening rap at Cagematch and commenting out loud “we killed dat!” which the audience really dug. There’s a two-man show I did with Dave Theune at an indie show that may be my favorite show of all time & my current Harold Team has had a few shows over the past couple months that I absolutely loved. It’s too hard to pick a favorite but I will say the thing I’m most proud of is starting Crashbar Improv (http://www.crashbarimprov.com) & the AMAZING success of the first ever LA Indie Improv Festival.

MiaB: Have you ever performed at the Del Close Marathon before?

CF: Yes. I took last year off but was there in 2009 & 2010. Super excited to be coming back!

Pentagrampa – Saturday, 12:15am at UCBeast
Police! Pull Over! – Saturday, 1:15am at UCB Theatre
