Jeremy Brothers is the Artistic Director of Improv Asylum and Director of the Training Center. A veteran of the Main Stage cast, Jeremy has created dozens of sketch and improv revues over the last fifteen years, as well the original shows “Andy Warhol’s Christmas Special,” “Punch for Punch" and the original musical “You’re A Good Man, Scott Brown” with Jim Zaroulis. He can also be seen (albeit, very briefly) in the film “Bride Wars.” Special thanks to the Main Stage cast and crew for their time and their talent, the NXT casts and crew for their thirst, everyone in the corporate office for making sure it all happens, the front of house staff for letting him sit wherever he wants, his family and friends for their support and to The Leathergang, for making his week — every week. If he's forgetting anyone, assume it's purposeful. In his spare time, he teaches in the Theatre Department at Suffolk University and is a regular host for The Moth. A graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Jeremy hails originally from Tewksbury, the former carnation capital of the world.
Cuddy is thrilled to be performing in her sixth Main Stage revue at Improv Asylum. Cuddy has trained and performed in Chicago at The Second City and Annoyance theaters and has performed in improv festivals around the United States, Ireland, and Spain. Cuddy is honored to be part of such a wonderful cast and isn't quite sure how she ever lived without them (cool shirt, Matt!). She would like to thank her family, especially her parents for letting her use their cable and electricity, her supportive friends, and everyone she’s ever shared a stage with. Cuddy lives her life as a pop star which makes her insufferable. Enjoy the show!
Wow. Here we are, face to face, a couple silver spoons. Brian is tremendously excited for you to be here and to be understudying his second mainstage revue. When not wearing a suit, Brian can be seen wearing a dress at the Asylum's Saturday night production of All the Single Ladies at Ned Devine's. You can also see him more casually dressed with the Leather Gang at IA's House Team night or with Awkward Compliment, his favorite mistake, Thursdays in Davis Square. Special thanks go out to his incredibly supportive friends and family – you know who you are; the unsupportive ones also know who they are and hopefully haven't made it this far into the the theater. And most of all, thanks to his wife Natalie, whose exceptional tolerance for bad jokes is much appreciated. Together, we're gonna find our way!
Kelly studied Theater at Suffolk University where she got her start with improv as a member of the Nationally Award winning troupe Seriously Bent. Kelly has performed at The PIT in NYC, taken classes with Upright Citizens Brigade, and is an alumnus of IA's NXT cast and House Teams. She is thrilled to be back for another Mainstage revue! She would like to thank her father for being her rock, her sister for being beautiful, and her friends and roommates for creating the best family a gal could ask for. She dedicates this and all shows to her mother. Let it be.

Eric LaMonica is very proud and excited to start his third year with the NXT. An IA Training Center graduate, Eric has been performing for nearly five years. He is also a member of the independent troupe What up Doh? alongside his long-time friends, who may or may not be criminals. (They are). When he isn't performing here at Improv Asylum, you can find Eric bartending in the lobby because "baby needs a new pair of shoes". Eric is a native of South Boston, and he even has the paperwork to prove it. Also, he’s on TV. Sometimes. He wants to thank his parents, Dawna and Steve LaMonica, and his wife Tonia for laughing at his idiocy; his brother Marc because he's scared of him; and Jeremy Brothers for letting us do the funeral sketch every show. SMT.
Joey would like to thank his babe of a wife, Siobhan, for putting up with his Lego addiction, feeding him, and her constant support of his comedy pipe dreams. A big thank you to his friends and family for coming to shows. Special thanks to Bill Connolly, Marty Johnson, Kiley Fitzgerald, Ryan McFarland, Teddy Myers, Jeremy Brothers, Tony Passafiume, and Ryan Bernier for putting Joey on stage with people far funnier than him. Joey is one sixteenth Mexican… Ripley's Believe It or Not!
John is so excited to be on the Mainstage! Really, it's so much fun! You can also catch him on Sunday nights with the NXT cast, Tuesday nights with House Teams, Wednesdays with the Just Suspects, and any other night walking around with his dog. He got his start with Seriously Bent at Suffolk University, grew up in California, and served in the Coast Guard. Thanks to friends, family, and Woodrow Wilson.
