The Frank Mills

The Frank Mills take one suggestion and create a universe where realistic relationships and characters are thrust into situations that would make most people run screaming. Watch as these characters deal with the madness around them and with each other with real emotions and intelligence.

The Frank Mills are Austin Improvisers' favorite improv troupe. They are working actors who have trained, directed and performed extensively at some of the world's foremost comedy institutions, including The Second City in Chicago and Cleveland, The Annoyance Theater and Improv Olympic Theater in Chicago, Boom!Chicago in Amsterdam and ComedySportz in Austin. They have been consistently recognized by their peers, winning "Best Improv Troupe" in 2006 and 2008 by the Austin Improv Collective; and in 2010 by ColdTowne Theater, and by the Austin artistic community at large, receiving the first ever B. Iden Payne Award for "Outstanding Improvisation Ensemble" in 2006. In addition, The Frank Mills were selected as "Best of the Fest" by Hyde Park Theater's FronteraFest 2007. The Frank Mills founding members have served as faculty at the ColdTowne Theater Conservatory since its inception and in every show strive to bring the audience grounded, character-driven comedy that is both funny and smart. They can be seen every Saturday night at 10pm at ColdTowne Theater.


"Gives the quality of watching a good sitcom being crafted before your eyes." -- Austin-American Statesman
"The Frank Mills grace the stage with fine-tuned intelligence...calm, confident and impressive improvisation." -- The Austin Chronicle

Reformed Whores

(Sketch) Brooklyn, NY

What do you get when you combine an accordion, a ukulele, and two southern belles who've washed away their sins but forgot to rinse out their mouths? The musical/comedy duo Reformed Whores, of course! Fronted by Marie Cecile Anderson and Katy Frame, these lovely ladies sing about everything from venereal diseases to drunk dialing with sweet harmonies and old-timey flair. Watch them struggle to clean up their act at this knee slapping, toe tapping, hoedown.

Reformed Whores have performed in NYC at notable venues such as UCB, The PIT, The Creek and The Cave, and Carolines on Broadway. They have been featured in The Huffington Post, Glamour Magazine blog, and Time Out Chicago. They've also been busy touring the country and have performed at the Chicago Sketchfest, Charleston Comedy Festival, and The Ladies Are Funny Festival in Austin, TX.
