Orpheus Roy

Los Angeles

Orpheus Roy is comprised of veteran performers from The Second City, UCB, iO, The Groundlings and Comedy Sportz. Separately, they hail from Pittsburgh, Chicago, Austin, Denver, Milwaukee, Boston, and Kansas City. Together they now call Los Angeles' iO West home where, as of the writing of this bio, they are the reigning Cagematch champs. As they all come from different playing backgrounds, a typical Orpheus Roy show is a whirlwind of style, speed, and exploration. They approach each show with the same mentality - play hard, play fast, and follow the funny.

Orpheus Roy will be appearing in the 2010 Los Angeles Improv Festival and are the current iO West Cagematch champion - 32 straight weeks.

King Ten

Los Angeles, CA.

King Ten is iO West's longest-running house team and one of the premier improv ensembles in Los Angeles. Audiences pack the house every Wednesday night to watch King Ten perform iO West's signature piece, The Harold, and to enjoy the original, ambitious and hilarious style of play this ensemble is known for.

Individually these veteran improvisors  have  appeared in national television series, commercials and feature films, as well as taught classes, workshops, and coached teams at iO West. This show is not to be missed. King Ten is Jon Crowley, Josh DuBose, Karen Graci, Dave Hill, Jason Pardo and Austin's own Irene White.  Great minds think alike...and so do theirs.

Claymore

Chicago, IL

With over a year of performing weekly, Claymore members Brian, Josh, Peyton, and Tyler perform a long-form improv set that plays off of a “word of inspiration” from the audience. From this word they open with the four conversing about personal experiences. They then proceed to use every mental and physical idea possible to create a unique, fast-paced, original bizarre-fest, drawing from their stories. There are no boundaries; there are no taboos. From personal experiences to the absurd, you’ll be laughing while your brain tries to keep up.

What makes Claymore's approach unique is that all four members have known each other since college (over 8 years). They are completely comfortable with each other, willing to go over the line emotionally and physically to explore an idea. And since the members have known each other for so long, their personal stories have intimacy and depth. And on the opposite end of the spectrum, they are highly physical, absurd and kinetic. They offer a whole range of theatrical levels.

Claymore was an official selection for the Del Close Marathon 2009, they have had an open run at The Playground Theater (Chicago) since Oct. 2008, and they were a Chicago Red Eye Best Bet.
