Improv Resident Team Audition Night!
Come be a part of the decision making process for our next round of Resident Teams! In the event of a tie, the decision will come down to an AUDIENCE VOTE!
Space Heater was formed in Cody Saunders’ backyard sometime in 2021, along with our partner group, Backyard. The group performs a Town style long form with an opener introducing the characters followed by a variety of styles of scenes between those characters throughout a connected set of locations
When we perform with our partner team, Backyard, we do “A Tale of Two Towns”, where the first group asks for the suggestion and performs a full set and then this group portrays the Town format but without an additional suggestion, reflecting themes they saw in the first performance. However, each group also operates as an independent whole, so this connection is definitely not a requirement.
This group has performed at Westside Comedy Theater as a Resident Team, The Glendale Room and have frequent shows at fanaticSalon. We are directed by Ruby Willman and sometimes work with a few different directors for our group, which has included: Al Garcia, Jason Shotts, Roberto Lewis, and Zach Huddleston. All our actors have a background with Westside Comedy Theater.
PUG (originally Pick-Up Game) has performed in Los Angeles since 2018, and includes veteran performers from M.I.’s Westside Comedy Theater, iO West, and The Groundlings. PUG performed regularly as ACME Comedy in North Hollywood and on The PUG Hour, an online show produced by Outside In Theater. PUG’s style of play is fast, irreverent, and, we hope, fun.

We are a mix of long form improvisers that come from wonderfully diverse training backgrounds: WCT, iO, 2nd CIty (Hollywood and Chicago), UCB, Impro, Pact, ImprovBoston and Improv Asylum, etc.
Most of the players on this troupe were introduced via Jay Sukow. I reached out to Jay looking for experienced-die-hard improvisers to form a troupe for this audition. Our cast is experienced in styles / formats such as: Harold, JTS Brown, Commando, Montage, Sketch and other disciplines and influences.
