Andy Short

Andy Short performs with The ImprovBoston Family Show. He has a myriad of other pursuits that include teaching children theater, playing "cutesy" video games with his girlfriend, and thinking about starting a business one day. One time he biked across the country for charity -but don't get him started because you won't hear the end of it. This is his attempt at a comedy website bio that is 1 part flippant, 1 part informative, and 1 part humble-braggy. He really hopes he hit a respectable balance and especially that you enjoyed reading it!

Currently a member of ImprovBoston’s Mainstage, Kristina has over 20 years of experience performing, as well as directing and teaching those of all ability levels. She first joined IB in 2004 as a member of Theatersports and has since then performed with the Touring Company, Mainstage, Face Off and various showcase shows such as Slainte, Girls’ Night Out, LuvBoat, Gorefest and Spice, which she directed and co-produced. 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.
