There is a world just outside your everyday life that is remarkably similar, but infinitely more hilarious. A world bursting at the seams with truthful characters that aren't afraid to go after what they want.

Caveat's signature style takes an audience suggestion and explodes it into this world of possibility. With the fuel in the tank, snacks in the back and directions in hand, the players of Caveat set off on a veritable roadtrip of scenes that take you to a new, uproarious destination every single time.

Consider yourself warned: For Caveat, being funny is no joke.

 
Stephanie Anderson has studied and performed comedic improvisation since 2005. As most improv love stories go: Stephanie initially fell in love with improv as a fun retreat from her day job (working with high-risk youth) and now incorporates the two! With training from instructors of the DC Improv, Annoyance Theatre in Chicago, The People's Improv Theatre and Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City, she's studied both short and long form improv, character creation, and scene work. Stephanie is a member of several improv troupes in the DC area including Jive Turkey, Comedy Sportz DC, the DC Improv Comedy School Cast, and is a proud member of a talented bunch known as Caveat.
Archie Cubarrubia has been making stuff up ever since he was a little kid. Now he gets to do it in front of people, which satisfies his exhibitionist tendencies. A founding member of the longform troupe, DMG <http://dmgimprov.tumblr.com> and an avid writer and musician, Archie is a proud product and now faculty member of the WIT training program.
Sean Paul Ellis has always been performing in an ensemble.  It began with a performance in middle school where he was cast as the prestigious "Zombie #4" in the 8th grade play.   This quickly led to other noteworthy ensemble roles such as "Pirate #3" and "Nazi #2" in a variety of musicals.  It wasn’t until after he moved to DC in 2007 that Sean decided to pursue improv at WIT.  Early in 2009, he began performing with the long-form troupe DMG <http://dmgimprov.tumblr.com>, and is now thrilled to be a member of Caveat because it fosters his love for writing bios in the third person.  Sean is married to a hot mess of a supportive wife.
While Jenny Huftalen's true passion lies in the administrative arts, she often finds that she needs to pay bills - which is where improvising comes in handy. Jenny was introduced to the Washington Improv Theater in 2007 and she has been fully immersed in their training program ever since. Jenny performed with WIT ensemble, Caveat for 3 years and is now thrilled to be joining Commonwealth where she anticipates rooms full of laughter, in contrast to her typical experience. Jenny is a native of Central New York where if you don't have a sense of humor, you freeze to death.
James McGill is a native of Chicago; and graduate of The Second City Conservatory and iO Theater program.  He is thrilled to be playing with Caveat and to be a member of the WIT faculty.  James is married to a dazzling genius and is an avid Chicago Cubs fan.
Melissa Mock was bitten by the improv bug during a rather unfortunate camping trip a few summers ago.  Soon after, she signed up for classes at WIT where she discovered the condition was chronic.  Melissa has directed some shows and performed in a few things, but nothing you would have seen since she isn’t from around here.  She spent most of her life in the Pacific Northwest and is still stunned to see “Virgina” on her driver’s license. Mostly she spends her time teaching theater to middle school students, which is equal parts reward and pure exhaustion, so she is thrilled that she gets to perform with the “adults” in Caveat. Melissa is married to a guy who makes her laugh every day.
