What's your day job?
Do you have any hobbies outside of improv?
Art and cooking
What drew you to improv?
I saw a show at Spitfire and wanted to jump back into acting
What do you like to do most on stage?
Long form scenes
What makes a good scene in your opinion?
Interesting character relationships developing throughout the scene
What's the most memorable moment you've had at Spitfire?
During the April 27th shows for Game of Lesser Thrones there were so many great moments!! I also really enjoyed my Level 2 Student Showcase scenes with my scene partner Steven.
How would you explain Spitfire shows to someone who's never been?
I always start by asking "have you ever seen the show Whose Line is it Anyway?" I describe the shows as improv comedy games or scenes where there is usually an element of audience participation for suggestions.
How would you describe the Spitfire community in 5 words or less?
Committed. Talented. Got. Your. Back.
Gabbi was in our GoT parody mainstage, Game of Lesser Thrones. You can see her on Saturdays in Whose Line St Pete and Breaking News.
