POPPY CHAMPLIN (CO-HEADLINER)There’s just something about Poppy. She walks on stage looking urban cool and she begins rolling out the jokes, starting slow and sure and moving on to staccato and soon she is hitting on all cylinders, spitting out jokes, quips, songs, impressions, interactions, bird calls and with deep resources to draw from, all of Poppy’s shows can be described as spin art – “No two alike.” Poppy is crackerjack at the craft of improv. Throw anything at her and watch as she magically turns it into comedic fodder. Having graduated from the University of R. I. with a degree in Theatre she then went on to the Famed Chicago Second City Improv school. Champlin is one of the quickest witted comedians working either coast today. She has a wild and roaming spontaneity, which makes each show actually feel like one of a kind. She is a powerful performer who can glide between practiced patter and off the cuff insightful improvisations. Poppy’s experience with classic standup and improv, gives her a double-barreled flexibility that works particularly well with her subjects of choice. Besides Poppy’s deep comedic chops, she actually has a seriously good voice that she puts to use during her performance making sure to end every show on a good note.
