Derek Cochran is enjoying his twentieth year performing improvisation in the Bay Area. Throughout those years, he was inspired by and fortunate enough to work with some of the most talented improvisers in the country. He credits his love of long form improvisation to his early instructors, Diane Rachel and Carol Hazenfield, for showing him that improv can go beyond a simple funny game and create a rich tapestry of all kinds of stories. Currently he is proud to work with the Un-Scripted Theater Company ensemble, where they allow him to obey the inscrutable exultation of his soul. He gives thanks to his family, his Treasure Island Pirate dogs, and to all the improvisers who he has worked with, been taught by, and failed spectacularly with; throughout the years.

Ian was first exposed to improv as an eleven-year-old in a class at Walnut Street Theatre! Since then, he's performed in numerous sketch and improv groups in Philadelphia and the Bay Area, including the Stanford Fleet Street Singers and Stanford Improvisors. His favorite gig has been teaching improvisational theater at Hillsdale High School with the most talented group of teenagers he's ever met. When the sun's out, Ian does marketing for GreatNonprofits and serves as the chair of the Advisory Board for Camp Kesem at Stanford.
Molly Robertson is a Bay Area tour guide. She studied marketing at Wagner College and improv at Upright Citizens Brigade for over four years in New York. Following school, she headed back to the Bay where she began performing with Un-Scripted. She took a few years to travel around the world with Up with People and finally made her way back to the Bay again. She is happy to have a place to improvise since she is not allowed to make things up on tour.
Olivia Puerta first discovered improv at age 9 as a student of First Stage Theater Academy in her hometown, Milwaukee, WI. A dedicated theater kid, she continued to study and perform theater and vocal music in all her formative years. Olivia has been studying and performing improv in San Francisco since 2012, training primarily with Endgames Improv, where she now teaches. She performs weekly with San Francisco Tonight and is thrilled to me a member of Un-Scripted Theater Company's performing ensemble.
Brittany has been performing improv for over ten years, training in both long and short form improv. She has performed with troupes in Ohio, Colorado, and now California! When she is not practicing improv she is a scientist in the Bay Area.
Bonnie Kate Wolf is a Bay Area native who recently moved home from London. She's been doing improv since middle school, and likes to think she's improved. At Un-Scripted Theater Company, she guested in Let It Snow 2018, In Case You Missed It, and Oregon Trials. For the 2019 season, she'll be guesting in Mixtape, World Premiere, and Remote Control Freak. She performed with Un-Scripted at the West Coast Musical Improv Festival 2019. You might say she enjoys singing. She performs regularly with Well Endowed, a local improv troupe, and trained at BATS Improv. Professionally, Bonnie Kate is a brand designer at OpenTable. For fun, she knits sweaters, sings a cappella, and plays with her puppy. She plays ukulele because guitars are too big for her hands.
Natalie Ernst is thrilled to be part a part of Mixtape! She is currently an improv instructor and performer with Leela in San Francisco. She has a background in musical theater and is excited to continue combining her love for improv with her love for musical. She currently has the pleasure of performing in a duo called “Musical Story time with Natalie and Sid,” which is a musical Armando-type format, often featuring puppets. She is also in a group called “Giraffe Town” that performs the Deconstruction format, created by Miles Stroth, as well other groups known as “The Leftovers,” and "Leela’s Armando Company.” Natalie has her own small face painting company, “Paint a Face Designs,” where she has the opportunity to express her creativity through face painting, and body art. Natalie is very grateful for all of the amazing people she has met through this incredible art form.
