Cindy used to solve mysteries w/ some meddling kids & one zany dog. One night in Snyder NY, they heard howling sounds coming from a basement & knew they had another mystery to solve. As they crept down the stairs, Cindy tripped & her glassed fell off, "my glasses! I can't see without my glasses!", Cindy said. She felt around the floor, found her glasses & continued to investigate. What Cindy saw in there, changed her life forever. That was the last mystery Cindy ever solved & she had a new gang
Kayla's only regret in life is stopping to pick up that hitchhiking family of skunks back in Tulsa.
In the lab, a grey-haired man and his hunchbacked assistant labored over a sheet-shrouded figure lying lifeless on the cold marble slab. The moment had come. Previous attempts had failed spectacularly and this would be it - triumph or misery, there could be no further venture down this labyrinthine rabbit hole of abomination. After pulling the sheet away, they could see immediately that they failed again. They threw him into the moat. We took pity on him. We took him in. We named him Joe.

Lucas once rap-battled the Energizer Bunny. It was a tie, so the Bunny stole Lucas’s muscles, and Lucas stole the Bunny’s energy. A homeschooled nerd who hasn’t yet figured out what bells and cafeterias are, Lucas is an expert in all things Broadway. You might catch him tap-dancing, or complaining that Lawrence O’Keefe writes bad orchestral reductions. Claims to fame include: having a Grinchy smile and more energy than 4AM Randy Blamowski, and owning a suspiciously blue pair of athletic pants.
Dan is a local guy who spent his formative years finding himself in the Midwest. While there, he learned the art of problem-solving and fine-tuned his musical skills. After wandering the corn fields of Indiana for a few years, he returned to Western New York and is a professional corporate babysitter and nagger. In his free time Dan enjoys taking pictures of friends while they're blinking, working on perfecting his pancake flip technique, and pondering the mysteries of the universe.
Mike's mustache is the 6th coolest player on the ComedySportz team.
Ben loves to make people laugh. A recent graduate of Canisius College, Ben manages Revolver Records—a job in which he does not utilize the degree that took so much time (and money) to procure. When he’s not embarrassing himself on a stage or reading a book, he’s probably slamming his fists against a keyboard attempting to write something he considers a ‘short story.’
Always smiling Don't feed him mustard Anxious about skunks Math is his friend Excellent at telling time Sarcasm is his weapon Can't explain fashion Human Buys black market board games Only vanilla ice cream please Ravenclaw Nice enough
Jane is 60% coffee. She believes in the power of fleecy socks, purple pens, and things that look like other things.
Robyn has been training for ComedySportz her whole life. Pun wars were a family tradition, and her dad was her first improv partner. By day, she is a mild-mannered office worker. By night, she uses her powers for good, making the world safe for Loyal Fans everywhere.
Vee "Dazzled" works with kids by day and acts like one by night. She enjoys long walks through Walmart, falling asleep to the sweet sounds of animated horror stories, creative writing, and dancing. Vee can sign the alphabet in ASL with both hands at the same time and her eyes closed! Vee is very excited to begin her journey with the Pros after stints in the Minor League and Buff State’s FNL. She graduated with honors from Buff State, and is a big fan of making people smile & laugh.
If you are reading this: Congratulations! You'll be one of maybe 3 people to read Eric's biography and learn that he's secretly afraid of watermelons, and can't stand the letter 'C'. (Why not just use 'K' and 'S'?) He recently learned how to lick his own elbow, and how to pronounce "gif" as "gif". If you ever run into Eric in a public space, please feel free to scream "Hello!", and tell him that he's the best improviser you've ever met; he is an inexorable introvert with very low self-esteem.
Mostly made up of hair, eyes, and sass, Meghan is a recovering emo kid who occasionally relapses into crowdsurfing at punk shows. She enjoys all food… but mostly burritos. A thrill-seeking adventurer, she has jet skied while wearing sunglasses, bungee jumped in the rainforest, rafted through class IV rapids, climbed volcanoes, scuba dived near sharks, piloted a plane, wiped out surfing, hit the bullseye with a crossbow, skydived (twice), ziplined on a boat, and collaborated with the FBI.

"Being a part of CSz Buffalo has changed my life & I’m so thankful to be here," he said as he looked forward & walked right past the exit on his left.
Joe is 165 lbs of pure, chiseled muscle and likes to protect that perfect body with 100 lbs of padding (you can never be too careful). He is a former World Slam-O-Rama Pog Tournament Champion and fights every year at POGCON for the title. In the Pog community he is known as The PogFather.
Theorizing that one could improv within his own lifetime, Dr. Kevin Knowles stepped into an improv group in college and vanished. He woke to find himself in a world of laughter, acting as different characters that were not himself and driven by an unknown force to make the world funnier. And so, Dr. Knowles finds himself moving from scene to scene, striving to put right what once was humorless and hoping that each time, his next scene will be the scene that leaps him home...
Becca’s goal in life is to be equal parts Tina Fey and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She’s getting there, slowly but surely. Unfortunately, Becca’s not the funniest attorney at her law firm. But she IS the best attorney at CSz Buffalo.* *Legal Disclaimer: Becca is the only attorney at CSz Buffalo. Past results do not guarantee future performance. Carrier's data charges may apply.
Mild-mannered graphic designer* Kat has a husband, kids, a dog, & many lawn flamingos. Her superpowers include singing loudly in the car & using “yeet” correctly.** She is a graduate of ComedySportz Raleigh/Chapel Hill ('98) & CSz Buffalo’s Minor League ('19). What happened in the 21 years between is a dark Secret.*** *She’d tell you about it, but then she’d have to kern you.**“Yeet me that there Raisinet.” **Strong enough for a man, but old enough to remember 1970s deodorant ads.
Max was recently named "Second Funniest Improv Performer in Erie County Who is Actually Three Cats in Athletic-Ware." He began his life as a cantaloupe in a diaper and looks forward to retiring as a bag of lawn trimmings in really high-wasted pants.
Drew would trade his entire Star Wars action figure collection for a Pittsburgh Pirates World Series appearance and is raising a thriving community of Doozers in his beard.
David was raised in Shermer, Illinois. It was there that he learned to bounce a Spaldeen.

SCP traveled the world until giving a final performance at the Addison Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. When not performing ComedySportz, David works as a litigation support specialist at Gage, Whitney, Pace LLC. You Bet.
Peter is our resident Grillmaster. Known for his BBQ smoked pork and chicken, he wooed his wife by reading BBQ sauce recipes to her while sitting by his pit fire. Peter credits his improv origins to his son, a CSz High School Leaguer, who challenged him one night at dinner to take some classes. He dropped a pork rib into his macaroni and made porkaroni: food improv gold. Challenge accepted. Make no mis-steak, his improv is fall-off-the-bone funny!
JohnMichael will teach you a thing or two about camel casing. And kerning. And Bézier Curves.
Danette is made of cartwheels, bright eye shadow, red lipstick, musical improv, and gluten-free cookies. Danette would like to thank her mother for always encouraging her to have fun, her husband for allowing her to embarrass him in public and, of course, the ComedySportz Loyal Fans for giving her a reason to keep playing.
Allyson is very good at speaking in the third person. In fact, she's doing it right now. Unfortunately she is not nearly as good at writing bios. Tragic.
As the daily rains imbue the fertile jungle loam under her feet with the power to support life, the High Priestess showers words of power over the anointed talisman, channeling into it vital energies. Her purpose is simple: to keep the Great Evil at bay. Should she fail in her duties, the World will be swallowed into a dark eternity. Nate, as her disciple, must harvest the essence that powers the talisman: laughter. He roams the globe producing mirth and joy, that we may avoid a terrible fate...
If Brian could eat dinner with any three celebrities, he would choose John Green, Harry Chapin, and Carl Fredricksen. His guilty pleasures include the movie Barbershop, Lou Bega, and Arby's roast beef sandwiches. If stuck on a deserted island, and could only bring one item, he would bring a Furby so that he had someone to talk to.
Kelsey's patronous is a koala. She recommends that you eat S'Mores with cinnamon graham crackers and dark chocolate. It's not only better tasting, it's classier.
