Member Since 2020

Jerrod originally hails from Putnam, CT, and trained and performed with ComedySportz DC in Washington DC and Comedy Under Construction in San Diego before moving back to New England. His love of short-form led him to BYOI and he can also be found teaching and performing on house teams at the Providence Improv Guild and performing with numerous local indie teams. Jerrod is a proud Marine veteran, hates onions like nobody’s business, and enjoys an all you can eat buffet way more than a normal person should.

Alan Austin

Member Since 2015

Alan has been a pretty regular member of BYOI since 2015 (greater than or equal to 55% of the time). Prior to this and during college, he was part of a small improv group called Production Under Construction in northwest Indiana for four years. He works in the marine science field and enjoys birdwatching, hanging out with family, and talking to anyone about turtles and frogs!

LoLo Crocker

Member Since 2023

LoLo has been in the performing arts since she was in elementary school. She currently satisfies her comedy cravings by performing at BYOI, writing and acting sketch comedy, and binging the Big Bang Theory. She also performs short and long form improv at the Providence Improv Guild; which led her to audition for BYOI. She’s still pinching herself every day that she is part of our amazing cast! In her spare time, she is a Certified Reiki Practitioner and enjoys yoga, a hot cup of tea, music, poetry, and spending time with her friends.

Audrey Dubois

Member Since 2017

In her distant youth, Audrey performed with Wheaton College’s Dimple Divers. Upon graduation, she joined BYOI in order to keep the spirit of comedy alive in her heart forever. Audrey serves on the executive board of Swamp Meadow Community Theatre and is currently working toward a master’s degree in poetry (as if being a comedian wasn’t enough). She is making great strides in achieving her dream career as a philosopher hermit. In life, as in improv, she’s just making it up as she goes along.

Dana Goodman

Member Since 2023

Dana was raised by silly people, married a silly person and intends to be silly herself for as long as possible. Obsessed with “Who’s Line is it Anyway?”, since she was a kid, she’s psyched to join BYOI and give some purpose to the Quasimodo impression that didn’t get her any dates in high school but secured her some BFFs. As a certified nature lover, she goes on hikes to stare at mushrooms, cuddle with moss, and literally hug trees. If there is water around Dana WILL get wet. When she’s not cleaning up beach litter she enjoys hanging in her hammock, reading antique storybooks, and a darn good cup of coffee.

Amy Kahn

Member Since 2014

Amy’s been chasing laughs since college, where she co-hosted a comedy talk show on Penn’s UTV, helped start a sketch comedy group, and performed standup at local clubs before assuming her secret identity in data analysis. Later, the Speed of Thought Players lured her away from standup to improv with its unpredictability. She’s been hooked ever since, and is happy to be part of the BYOI cast! Most recently, Amy has been training and performing online with Groundlings School, Impro Theatre School, UK’s Playground, and Freestyle Love Supreme Academy. Amy comes from a long line of Shetland people and refuses to act her age.

Krissy Larsen

Member Since 2011

Krissy first discovered improv through BYOI, and is thrilled to be part of the cast!  Music and performing are two of her biggest passions – she has acted in dozens of musicals and stage productions, sung in choir and a capella groups, performed short and long form musical improv, and is a retired Princess performer.  She works full-time as a marketing professional and in her spare time she can be found relaxing with family, playing with her dogs, or obsessing over unicorns.

Timothy Killilea

Member Since 2018

Tim Killilea worked as a firefighter long before he got involved with the amazing work that BYOI does, but he sees the potential that improv has when it is shared with people. And BYOI is an opportunity for people from all walks of life to try out improvisational creativity for the first time. Tim hopes to help others learn more about this wonderful art form, and is looking forward to seeing you at the next show!

Maia Malo

Member Since 2022

Has loved improv since she was young. Born and raised in RI. Graduated from RIC in 2019 with a major in History. Would definitely consider herself a history nerd. Other hobbies include singing, musical theater, and playing the ukulele. Excited to be a part of BYOI.

Carolyn Morey

Member Since 2021

Carolyn has been acting since she can remember. She found improv through Bring Your Own Improv, and it has become her passion. She has taken many classes and workshops including BYOI’s youth collective. Currently a high school student at School One, Carolyn enjoys leading the school meetings and giving tours to prospective families. In addition to improv, Carolyn loves nerdy things like fantasy and math. Carolyn is so happy to be part of the BYOI cast.

Ian Sokoloff

Member Since 2012

In a prior improv life, Ian performed with San Diego Theatresports and co-founded the Subatomic Jenkins Clan (also in San Diego). Since arriving in New England, Ian discovered long-form improv (in addition to discovering weather), performing irregularly at ImprovBoston, training in and performing with the IB Harold On Deck program, and spending a stint with the IB Harold team Plan B. Now he’s transporting his stretched mind across state lines to play with BYOI’s audiences. Excelsior!

Jacqueline Sophia

Member Since 2023

Jacqueline’s passion for improv began many years ago, but after studying with the Groundlings school, it became apparent to her that she had more than just a knack for thinking on her feet. She is honored to add BYOI to her list of accomplishments, which includes numerous stage productions, singing in a choir, and being a Mom to three incredible human beings and 41 plants! When she’s not making people laugh out loud, well, mostly herself, Jacqueline enjoys cooking, yoga, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Tyler Vigeant

Member Since 2022

An Alumni of RIC’s Theater and Art program, Tyler took several Improv classes during his time there that furthered his love of the Improvisational Arts. Having been an audience member of BYOI for over 10 years, he appreciated the type of comedy that they brought to Rhode Island and had always thought it would be rewarding to be a cast member. (And now he can reap those rewards, HAHA!) Tyler frequently collaborates with Swamp Meadow Community Theatre and is the proud creator of the radio play Cyrano de Bergerac : In Space. He also worked at Disney World for 4 months once and won’t shut up about it.

Our Awesome Door Crew

Kerri Baggesen

Member Since 2011

Kerri is the self proclaimed Door Chick of BYOI and is rarely seen on stage. Hanging around funny people has not yet given her any comedic skills, but maybe it will happen someday! She likes hanging with friends for game nights, watching movies, assorted geekery, and Drag Bingo. She dreams of a future Tica life as a cat lady as motivation to finally learn Spanish.
