Improv Madness: Nightmares from My Childhood

BY KRISTINA MARTINEZ
@ VOL 17 ON APR 14, 2016

Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "Nightmares from My Childhood." Hilarity ensued.

Kristina Martinez, a native of Holland, had a hard time adapting to the cultural differences here Wisconsin. Holland, Michigan is quite literally another state; she likes to call it “the real mitten state.” (That’s okay, we all know better) A mild-mannered law librarian during the day, she turns into the Atlas Improve Company Manager at night---though sometimes it happens around 2:30 pm in the afternoon, so be careful around her.
