Patrick French

Patrick French has been performing as an actor and improviser throughout the Boston area since 2002. He was a member of the ImprovBoston Mainstage from 2007 – 2012, before stepping down so he had more time to change his kids' diapers. Prior to that, he performed with the Improv Asylum’s NXT cast. He has also performed in a number of ImprovBoston showcase shows over the years, including GoreFest, Crime Solving Bear & Oceans 2. He currently produces and performs in “The Angriest Show in the World,” a completely make-believe anger management seminar that inevitably spirals out of control. His awards include ImprovBoston's 2005 "Rookie of the Year," and Best Actor at Boston's 2010 48-Hour Film Festival. He has been known to get occasional commercial work - you may have seen him and heard his voiceover in numerous Papa Gino's pizza commercials, where he masterfully played the role of a hapless suburbanite whose grill has caught on fire.

As writer and producer, Kristina was a founding member of the Ruckus and Boston News Net. She also has a handful of local commercial and theatrical credits to her name, is a member of the Improv Asylum’s NXT cast, the Majestic Theater’s in-house troupe the Majesters and is pretty handy with a pneumatic nail gun. Kristina has a BA in Theater (and English) and has studied at ImprovBoston, ImprovAsylum, Williamstown Theater Festival, numerous workshops and tends to talk to strangers. You can follow her on Twitter @Smarzipantz, but barely ever tweets so feels a pang of guilt every time she gets a new follower. She likes lots of stuff and is genuinely curious how you’re doing.

Patrick French

Patrick French has been performing as an actor and improviser throughout the Boston area since 2002. He was a member of the ImprovBoston Mainstage from 2007 – 2012, before stepping down so he had more time to change his kids' diapers. Prior to that, he performed with the Improv Asylum’s NXT cast. He has also performed in a number of ImprovBoston showcase shows over the years, including GoreFest, Crime Solving Bear & Oceans 2. He currently produces and performs in “The Angriest Show in the World,” a completely make-believe anger management seminar that inevitably spirals out of control. His awards include ImprovBoston's 2005 "Rookie of the Year," and Best Actor at Boston's 2010 48-Hour Film Festival. He has been known to get occasional commercial work - you may have seen him and heard his voiceover in numerous Papa Gino's pizza commercials, where he masterfully played the role of a hapless suburbanite whose grill has caught on fire.
