Chris Woolf
Chris Woolf, Cast
Chris has been studying improv since 2002 and has a huge ego. He never stops talking, and it’s usually about theaters at which he has performed. He just drones on about, The Bovine Metropolis Theater, Voodoo Comedy Playhouse, Impulse Theater, The Avenue, The Vintage, The Buntport, Atlas, Deer Pile, and of course... The Jones. He brags about being nominated for a Denver Post Ovation Award in 2011 for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedic Role for his portrayal of Mercutio in Redneck Romeo & Juliet at Dangerous Theater— even though he didn’t win. He’ll talk your ear off about all the local and regional TV commercials he’s appeared in, and he loves to bring up his performances at improv festivals including; Chicago Improv Festival, Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival (Austin, TX), High Planes Comedy Festival, and appearances in every single Denver Improv Festival since its inception. Don’t even get him started about CULT FOLLOWING or Off-Center... he’ll never leave you alone.
