They are working actors who have trained, directed and performed extensively at some of the world's foremost comedy institutions, including The Second City, The Annoyance Theater and Improv Olympic Theater, Boom!Chicago and ComedySportz. They are also five friends who like to have a good time and make each other laugh. They have been consistently recognized by their peers, winning "Best Improv Troupe" by the Austin Improv Collective; 2006 and 2008, 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.

ManCamp - 1550

Los Angeles, CA

ManCamp creates a series of improvised scenes to take the audience on a path down the rabbit hole of funny.

Improv comedy finally has more guys. Join Jay Ashenfelter, Robert Boesel, Kevin Manwarren, Matt Moore, and Tim Simons for ManCamp. With each performer coming from a different "wheelhouse" of comedy, together they create shows that include strong characters, a little zaniness, a little edginess, and a dash of sweetness. They're like a bouillabaisse of comedy, without the fishy odor. ManCamp has performed in many LA comedy hotspots, including UCB Theatre, Laugh Factory, and iO West, where they have a residency. They are also a resident team at the Improv Space in Westwood and had a blast performing at last year's Out of Bounds Comedy Festival. You may recognize some of the ManCamp guys from HBO's "Veep" or their other TV roles of selling burritos, computers, flowers, and crunchy snacks.
