Ex-BoyfriendTucson, Arizona, United States
About Ex-BoyfriendWe are two women, 20 years apart in age, but close in proximity to humor. We find inspiration in the space between the words and languish in the language of strong relationships.
Ally and Gretchen both come from traditional theater backgrounds. They met when Gretchen brought in as an improv consultant on a play Ally was in. Then, Gretchen directed a play starring Ally called "Reasons: The House Burned Down". Quick bonds were formed, Ally took improv classes from Gretchen, Gretchen was in shock and awe at Ally's amazingness, and a duo was born.
They strive to find the humanity of their characters and the honesty of each moment in the lives of the characters they portray. What results is often funny, and always truthful.
They have performed at the 2017 and 2018 Tucson Women in Comedy Festivals, The Red Rocks Improv Festival, San Diego Improv Festival, Phoenix Improv Festival and perform monthly at Unscrewed Theater and Third Story Theater.
After our performance at Red Rocks Improv Festival, iO/Second City instructor and performer Joe Spence said, "What you two do is truly the ART of improv."
