Woody McCadden used to study English literature and make coffee professionally/pretentiously. Now he does improv and spends the rest of his time making cabinets and waiting to do more improv. He is a grad of the Improv Embassy and founding member of both the narrative troupe ‘Paperback Improv’ and the ‘Speak Up House Team.’ He loves improv as entertainment as well as an exercise in extreme empathy.
Chelsea Fahey fell in love with improv around the dinner table, playing the questions-only game with her boisterous family. She honed her skills with Experimental Farm Theatre, and became a founding member of the Trevor Comedy troupe. Chelsea is always looking for ways to grow as an improviser whether it’s taking classes, workshops or watching shows wherever she travels.
