Marshall Hayes

Marshall Hayes has been performing improv comedy on the Curious stage since April, 2016. After completing the available courses with Curious Comedy, Marshall co-founded the improv team, Yes MAM. He also joined the Curious Comedy house team, Punch Bowl. When asked why he likes studying improv so much, Marshall said “There’s an art form hidden underneath the absurdity of improvised comedy, I just wanna learn how to hold the brush”. Marshall’s path now branches into musical improv which he hopes to some day be a key foundation to his improv talents.

Adrienne Busch Headshot

Adrienne Busch

Adrienne Busch grew up in Grants Pass, Oregon, and as the third child of four (and the only extrovert of the four), she naturally was hungry for more attention. She started performing improv in April 2016 and thus began the journey to satisfy this hunger. When taking a free improv workshop at Curious, she fell in love with a group of rascals in the class and proceeded to complete all of the Curious courses with them and eventually form the indie team Tears of Friendship. The rest is really just history that someone should write a book about. She has attended countless workshops and shows and clawed her way onto teams and into shows and has never looked back. She performs regularly with the indie team Yes, MAM and Curious house teams Punch Bowl and Jump Kick Punch, the all-female-identifying house team. Having no theater and performance background has never held her down as she has branched out into some acting courses and musical improv study. She loves the art of improv and how much it has changed her life and helped her grow as a friend, daughter, lover, and human being. She spends her days designing buildings as a structural engineer which is way more boring than improv.

Savannah Sumrall Headshot

Savannah Sumrall

Prior to being involved in imrov comedy, Savannah performed and toured with a variety of rock and folk bands in L.A., Chicago and New Orleans.
