Our Distinguished Weekly Panel (and some fun facts about them)
This week our distinguished comedy vet is Erik Dies
Erik Dies has been studying at the UCB since 2005. His teachers include Anthony King, Shannon O’Neill, Jason Mantzoukas, Micheal Delaney and Doug Moe. He attended the Cooper Union and is a native of Norwalk, CT. He is excited to perform with RAGNAROCK at the UCB’s Harold night.
This week our hilarious indie darling is Kristen Acimovic
Kristen Acimovic is a writer and performer based in New York City. She has studied improv since 2008 and has been lucky to learn the craft from comedy wizards like Betsy Stover, Curtis Gwinn, Joe Wengert, Zach Woods, Shannon O’Neill, Anthony King, Rebecca Drysdale, and Michael Delaney. Kristen can be seen performing on UCB’s Harold Night with her team Mr. Crime and playing various venues around the city with her girl-powered sketch/improv group Candy Slice Comedy. She has an English degree from Northwestern University, makes her living as a copywriter, and holds a Hubai high red belt in Hapkido, a Korean martial art. If you are a fan of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, she would like to talk to you for at least four hours.Free Kittens

“We are a team of eight NYC-based long-form improvisers who met in 2009 while training at the Upright Citizens Brigade. Collectively, members have studied improv, sketch and theatre at The Magnet (NYC), Second City (Chicago), BMI, and with teachers from iO (Chicago). We have performed at venues all over NYC as well as at the Boston Improv Festival, The Providence Improv Festival, the Del Close Marathon and the 2012 NYC Improv Festival. We’re delighted to announce that we have been accepted to perform at the 2012 Chicago Improv Festival on April 27th.
In May of 2011, we produced and hosted The Garathon, a highly successful elimination-style, sixteen-team improv tournament at The Tank in NYC. We’re currently accepting submissions for the second annual Garathon where teams vie for $400 in cash prizes. Additional details are posted to our site, if interested.
Our show, Overtime (NSFW), is a three act 75 minute comedy show which runs regularly at The Tank (151 West 46th St) produced and hosted by us! Overtime (NSFW) consists of a series of improvised scenes inspired by an audience member interview about the thing we all love to hate: work! ”
