THE CAST AND WRITERS OF SQUAD PATROL
Adrienne Starkey was first introduced to improv at the impressionable and gullible age of 7. It was overwhelmingly fun and, she realizes in retrospect, surprisingly structured. Nearly two decades later, while working 56 hours a week without paid overtime for an unnamed corporation, she remembered that she had once had a soul and set out to get it back. She has found at least 54% of it at the Comedy Spot. Adrienne is usually seen wearing a wolf t-shirt and openly admits to having a cat blog.
Hailing from the great and civilized Northeast, Casey inadvisably spent five recent years in Washington, DC, as a consequence of which the catalogue of his past activities is now classified material, and dull reading, at that. Absent from comedy since his rivalry with Aristophanes turned bitter, Casey resurfaced in Sacramento at the conclusion of a journey constituted chiefly, as all human endeavor, of sex and violence. Graduating with minimal honors in the bottom ten of his sketch class and voted Least Likely to Have an Alternative, he was inducted into the august ranks of the Comedy Spot’s featured sketch troupe, the previous janitor having resigned in disgrace. He writes comedy, because to take the stage without a plan is just not done in proper society. And also because being a mugger is no longer as lucrative as it once was.
Charlie Lemcke began performing at the Sacramento Comedy Spot in 2012. Originally diving into the Harold program, he branched out to additional teams, including the long-form RIOT and has since added to his game-based skills with the show Short Cuts. Being a fan of sketch comedy for as long as he can remember, he’s proud to have collaborated with hilarious SCS performers and writers on sketch shows including: Let’s Get Weird, Secret Handshake Society, Cardboard Space Adventures, and Squad Patrol. Hosting a vast repertoire of impressions, Charlie has likely emulated both your favorite and most despised pop icons. Charlie feels fortunate to have worked with Comedy Spot alumni on several film projects in recent years.
Coreen Lemcke has been writing and performing at the Sacramento Comedy Spot since 2013. Passionate about sketch comedy, she has been a cast member on shows including: Let’s Get Weird, Secret Handshake Society, Cardboard Space Adventures, Squad Patrol and The Friday Show. Coreen is also a mother to 3 future Comedy Spot performers.
Derek grew up in rural southeastern Wisconsin where men are men and cows – contrary to popular belief – are quite happy. He has found comedy to be a great way to work out both sides of the brain, while at the same time it affords an excellent opportunity to study the human sub-species of liberal arts majors.
Evan owns a 40”H by 72”W double-sided, magnetic whiteboard with rolling supports. He also plays the violin. On a separate note, Evan will sometimes write his name in a mirror image on those sticky nametags, depending on the occasion. All in all, Evan doesn’t really know who he is, and he knows he probably never will… But he’s okay with that! Well, at least he thinks he’s okay with that… Sort of. After all, what’s life without a little (or a lot of) self-discovery? But something Evan does know is that he is excited to have the opportunity to spread laughter and smiles as part of the Sacramento Comedy Spot community. P.S. If you were wondering… [wee-JAH-yah]
Jessica Benz is an actress who has performed in many commercials you’ve never seen. She makes better use of her space on the planet by teaching kids to read. She enjoys playing kazoo, spending too much time on social media, and dreaming of performing on shows like Parks and Recreation. She is tickled to be writing and performing at the Comedy Spot.
When Josh was a second-grader, he was cast as the title role in his school’s production of The Little Red Hen. On the first day of rehearsal, he was devastated to learn that hens are in fact girls. This was cause for much snickering from his classmates for about two days. Years later, making his triumphant return to the stage right here at the Comedy Spot, he is giving the world some of the manliest comedy it has ever seen. Who’s snickering now, second graders?
Asked what he does on a typical Saturday night, Kevin said with a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound, he pulls the spitting high tension wires down. Helpless people on a subway train scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them. He picks up a bus and he throws it back down as he wades through the buildings toward the center of town. But since becoming involved with the Comedy Spot, he’s put the kibosh on most of that.
Two bean burritos, no onions.
Ardent Super Nintendo collector and Hondo guitar enthusiast, Marco became interested in writing comedy in high school when he shot the horrible short film ‘The Bible 2’. He started writing sketch comedy thanks to writing classes at the Comedy Spot. Marco is also the most stirring and handsome third of the video sketch group ‘On Your Marc, Get Brett, Joe!’ and writes comedic music for the rock band Vegetable Sacrifice.
Tina was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, where her parents let her stay up to watch SNL since birth. Involved with theater and musical performance since elementary school, she later studied acting in Orlando, including improv at SAK Comedy Lab. Then she forgot about it all for ten years, until waking up one day to remember that she really, really liked that sort of thing. Aside from comedy, she fancies art, film, vintage, exploring, sarcasm, and stuffing her face.
