Fashion Show at Lunch
Fashion Show at Lunch was formed when one UCB performer wondered, what happens if I put all of my favorite female improvisors on one team? Fashion Show at Lunch has performed at L.A. Indie Improv Festival, various UCB Mainstage shows and at over 50 indie shows in less than a year. We are a high-energy group that performs a deconstruction as our form.
Pleasantchille is Audrey Davis, Cassidy Davis, Billy Ritter, Alec Sarche, and Krys Tabujara. After meeting in improv class, they forced themselves to overcome their immeasurable differences and work together as a team. If they were a boy band, they would have killer dance moves, no obvious frontman, and a summer hit called “Ride My Motorcycle”.
