Abhishek Desai – School leader, rank student, overall geek. Abhishek, after having graduated as a mechanical engineer from Ramiah went in search of the ' True meaning of life'. Instead he found improvisation. Despite his occasional flirting with the food industry, Abhishek and Improv have now been going strong for a year.
Rohit Nair - Being born in a South Indian middle class family which was extremely focused on education, Rohit ended up choosing Computer Engineering as a profession. Only then, to find his true passion hidden in stories! Rohit likes to play with the humor hidden in the truth, the truth of our everyday lives. Improvisation as an art, for him, allows combining story-telling with such humor. It gives him a great sense of purpose he says- Making people laugh, challenging inherent notions that are deep rooted within them and need to be seen with a different perspective. He has been improvising for over 2 years.
Nasir Engineer – Hailing from the metropolis of Mumbai, Nasir brings with him 5 years of improv experience to Bangalore. He is someone who will judge a book by its film. Besides improv, Nasir is most fondly remembered as the “guy who runs.”
Madhu Shukla – Madhu is a theatre based facilitator and a storyteller based out of Bangalore. After her post-graduation in acting from Ninasam , Shimoga and The National School of Drama, New Delhi in 2006 she has extensively explored how theatre can deepen self-awareness and further personal growth. She has been using applied theatre methods, to build collaborative thinking and delivering leadership skills development workshops in corporations and communities. As a storyteller, her hope is to awaken compassion and wisdom, through a joyful suspension of imagination and deep heartful listening, though her initiative By the River.
ShrirupaSengupta - Shriburst into the Comedy scene in 2014 winning the Bangalore Finals of the MICF Raw Heats. Based out of Kolkata and Bangalore depending on the time of the year and the mood of her parents, she performs in the genres of Improv, Stand Up and Concept Comedy Shows. With a joyfully chaotic personality, Shri when not on stage or in rehearsals can be found burning things in the kitchen / putting her TISS- MSW degree to use, writing content / trying to shape shift into a cat and doing other such high energy activities.
Vijay and George - Our musical journey started with the inspiration of western classical and pop music which we have been listening to for a long time. We try to fuse indian music with the western styles to create a new wave that will stand out from the usual sounds. In the journey, wegot a chance to work with Improv Comedy Bangalore (ICB) in their second season. It has given us a chance to work on a style that is so challenging and exciting. As the name says, Improv is all about improving on spot based on the suggestions taken from the audience. This challenges us to improve and play different genres and we try to challenge the Improvisors as well, with our own style. This way, we try to Improvourselves and also try to contribute Improv by giving our best.
