MAIN CAST

AREE WITOELAR

Aree is the brains of this operation. Literally. He has studied, simulated, and eaten brains. He was born watching Whose Line Is It Anyway and never knew until late in life that improv is a calling. Aree believes that the best comedy is unplanned. Like the time he catapulted a hot shrimp from a plate into the shirt pocket of a village elder.

JOHANNE HOFSETH

Johanne is our free spirit. When not dancing zorba with senior ladies, she's hula-hooping with business people or rolling around on the floor with her contact improv students. Johanne's mind feeds on silliness. Falling down the rabbit hole, she found the absurd world of improv where she can feel embarrassed and in love at the same time. That's the best feeling in the world.

MAGNUS AASHEIM

Magnus is our familiar face guy. He appears in TV and film randomly and intensely before they cut to commercials for being too intense. Magnus found joy in making people laugh that, midway to mid-life, he declared that he would be improvising until 98 years old. He prepares for it by playing a lot of old man characters. Magnus is a master at facial gestures which can only get more intense with wrinkles.

SVERRE BREIAN

Sverre is our smooth operator. As smooth as Tobias Fünke from Arrested Development, whom he models his acting career after. Sverre likes to explore the world without having to prepare any suitcases, which is exactly what improv is. He watches obscene amounts of Masterchef and cries when a contestant burns their pastry. He might have a crusty exterior, but he has a soft heart. He's practically a souffle.

EIVIND HILDRE SPILLING

Eivind is our jolly court jester. He's a viking, but a modern viking. The one who sits in circles and sings baby songs. His penchant to entertain has forever been there since his days being a Jan Banan. Eivind once parachuted and had to cut the chute in mid-air as an emergency procedure. Also, he and his little brother were crimefighting racoons who designed video games. Those two facts are linked to one another.

ROBIN SVERD

Robin is our pilot of chaos. He thinks every day is a science fiction episode, that starts with “Captain’s Log..”. Robin has been around the block improvising in Norway since the very origins of Impro Neuf and in Denmark. When Scandinavia gets too cold he would fly south like the bird for Africa Burn.

HELENE HOLBÆK

Helene is our sunshine. When she walks by, flowers bloom in her grace, even in the middle of Norwegian January. When she sings like a hummingbird, she compensates for the rest of the Speakeasy’s lack of tune. Helene is a trained nutritionist, and knows what’s the best recipe for a healthy life: laughter.
