We want to introduce you to the people who make UIG great. Look for new interviews each week.
How long have you been improvising?
Since 2010, so about 5 years.
How long have you been involved with UIG?
This will be my third year.
What or who got you interested in improv?
My old high school improv team. They were a supportive and welcoming group that pulled me into the craft (both physically and metaphorically).
What is something most people don’t know about UIG?
We're actually a cult of Remedy Worshippers. All hail the Chai Tea Latte.
What is the best part about being a member of UIG?
The people. You couldn't find a more hilarious, accepting, and open group on campus. I've made some of my closest friends here.
Are there are scenes or lines that have stuck with you?
There are so many, but there's one I always laugh at when I remember. Mark Scott and I once did a scene about auditioning to be the Black Swan. "Love is beautiful, love is blind, love is black, just like the swan..." - Me. I said that.
What advice would you give someone interested in trying improv?
In the immortal words of Shia Labeouf: "DO IT, JUST DO IT! DON'T LET YOUR DREAMS BECOME DREAMS!"
Why should someone come to a UIG show?
It has been said that laughter is the best medicine. If you haven't checked lately, medicine can be pretty expensive. Our shows deliver your monthly dose of giggles at a fraction of the cost.
The UIG is a diverse group: what is your field of study/work/interest outside of improv?
I study physics, and for the past four years I've worked at a seniors home bathing geriatrics. In my spare time, I dabble in music.
Anything else you want to add?
Oh! My favourite quote! "Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company." - Booker T. Washington
Editors Note: Bradley is in his first term as Co-President Internal/Treasurer for the UIG.
