Clayton has been doing improv all over Orange County and LA since he was 17. Now you can catch him at the Westside Comedy Theater playing with McCallister every first and third Monday at 8 pm. If you do, come say hi. He’s very polite.
Trevor Tevel (rhymes with bell) has been in a relationship with improv for over 11 years, and started at this very theater! He has trained at the Westside Comedy Theater, Groundlings, UCB, iO West, and The Improv Space. Trevor also completed the sketch programs at Groundlings and UCB, which gave him the tools to develop pilots for A&E and Comedy Central. Trevor has toured the country performing improv and more. You can catch him performing regularly with the award-winning short form troupe – Mission Improvable.
When Trevor is not performing he likes to hang with his wife and little brother in the Big Brother/Big Sister program, roots for the Dodgers, reads comic books, listens to jazz, and coaches multiple improv teams around town including the house team – Gravity.
Ryan is a writer and improviser originally from the Bay Area. He wrote his first big story in the 5th grade, which was very derivative of Star Wars, Episode I (a movie that Ryan admittedly loved as a child but openly loathes as an adult).
He went on to get a really useful degree in Creative Writing from UC San Diego. One of his favorite memories from that time is when his Pulitzer Prize-winning poetry professor asked him to tutor her lower division students; she then rescinded the offer after he turned in a serialized poem entirely about toilet seats. “Your poetry is too funny” felt like an insult, but he chose to take it as a compliment.
After that ringing endorsement, Ryan decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a starving artist. Most of the time, he’s still pretty hungry.
Ryan can currently be seen performing at The Westside Comedy Theater with Air Force Fun, and once a month at The Pack Theater with cult-favorite sketch team Nightchurch.

Hawk is an LA Native who has dreamed of being an entertainer since his earliest memories of recreating music videos in his room as a child. Inspired by early greats such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton & Sammy Davis Jr., Sidney Poitier, Hawk found himself falling in love with the stage through theatre performances in high school and then again in his adult life as an Improv/Sketch performer.
Born in Marin County too early for her love of Harry Potter to be judged “age-appropriate” in the eyes of society, Alisa has long been a student of all things weird and awkward. Her studies drew her south to UC Santa Barbara where she found a parallel interest in modeling (financial modeling) that naturally drew her to Los Angeles to work in the glitzy and glamorous world of corporate finance. Rejecting the draws of both the posh accountant nightlife scene and Harry Potter video on demand, Alisa spends her evenings as a vigilante improvisationalist and watchful guardian of the awkward, drawn by the credo “with great awkwardness comes great responsibility.

Ever since his first starring role in his grade school’s play Nick Tickle: The Fairy Tale Detective as the eponymous gumshoe Josh caught “The Bug.” He has since tried his hand at a variety of types of performance on stage and the small screen. The one that he gravitated towards most was improv, having inadvertently made his first foray into the field when he forgot the lines of the aforementioned play. His ad-libs were met with a surprising amount of success, which gave him the confidence in his fledgling comedic abilities to strive to be the quick witted and somewhat inscrutable man he is today. Recently he went through the program at the Westside Comedy Theater and performs with the house team Big Kids every other Monday at 10:00 PM. His hobbies include spending way too much time playing video games, and making up D&D characters that he won’t have a chance to play anytime soon. Oh, he got a degree in Comparative Literature from San Diego State University, and his love for literature informs a lot of his comedic sensibilities.
Jeremy Weinreich really likes watching Romantic Comedies. If you don’t come to a “There Will Be Snacks” show, Jeremy hopes that it is because you are watching a Romantic Comedy. Preferably, any of them. Jeremy thanks you for your time and he wants you to know that you had him at hello, or any other greeting.
