Our Current Cast
Fer is Argentinian. Yes, he's heard about Messi. Screenwriter, sketch comedy expert, and amateur English speaker. He writes for TV, and for the new TV: Amazon Prime. He loves it. He doesn't love Jeff Bezos, though. He also creates humorous and (he likes to think) philosophical cartoons on his Instagram @unperrovegano. But that's enough about him. You didn't even ask.
At age eight, Nora played a dancing waiter on the Titanic in a school play. Unlike Rose, she never let go. A few years later, Nora found improv and has gone on to perform in over a dozen countries and countless festivals. She is half-American (sorry!) and half-Dutch (ook sorry!) and always in an existential crisis. Her deepest wish is to one day perform a perfect two-person La Ronde. Ask her about women’s football at your own risk.
Scott Trout was born in the mountains of Colorado, USA. He is the middle child of five boys, each gifted in something different. So at a young age, Scott started being dramatic in order to stand out. He found improvisation while playing the Genie in Aladdin. He thought there wasn't enough of Robin William's lines in the play, so he decided to add some. Now Scott's whole life is basically improv, from studying acting in the middle of Wyoming, to moving to Oregon to work in a full time Christian ministry, to getting married, and finally to moving to Amsterdam to mentor international students. During the pandemic, he started a podcast called Between Two Worlds, where he and his improv buddy Joey interview people's stories of spirituality ranging belief, unbelief, and everything in between.
This is Lara. Lara performs stand up, improv, and storytelling in Amsterdam. She’s equal halves Mexican, American, and Venezuelan and equally as confused as you are about it. After studying political theory, Lara didn’t get a job but instead began to write butt jokes to deal with the inescapability of the teeny tiny teeny role she plays in history.In Amsterdam, Lara produces weekly comedy nights with La Risa Dam, the Mezrab, and the Comedy Undergradz. She co-writes the satirical Dutch news show “Que Onda NL País”, and she does improv at both easylaughs and Boom Chicago. Pre-pandemic, Lara spent half a year performing in South America.
Samy was born and raised around the Mediterranean and as such, claims to carry a bit of sun around. He also considers himself to be a cat. He intends on proving that be leading 9 lives; so far, he has been a competitive swimmer, a plant geneticist, an IT manager and an improv player. Five to go.
