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.

Instructor:

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.
