New York improviser: Emerald Catron

Emerald Catron

Emerald Catron hails from Kansas, which means she's really good at being bored. During her college years she performed stand-up and sketch comedy, as well as writing and performing in weekly serialized comedy stage productions. She also taught children's theater for a while. To counteract that, she formed a horrifically crude rap band in Philadelphia, Dem ShortyBooz. Now she lives in New York City, studies at the People's Improv Theater, and hops onstage whenever she can. Sometimes it's a great way to make a few extra bucks.
