Daredevil is a collective group of Improvisers spanning over 25 years of experience & training from UCB, the Groundlings, iO, Second City in Chicago & Hollywood. Somehow this merry band of fools found each other in the small beach town of Wilmington, North Carolina, where they perform weekly doing a variety of improv comedy shows. For this festival, they plan on doing some fearless longform, spiced with characters, romance & nonsense.
Brandy Brown embodies when you mix Black Girl Magic with Big Dick Energy! Her bubbly personality and dark observations about growing up struggling with weight, growing up in the South and society in general will give you something to think AND laugh about!
Anna Valenzuela’s radiant smile belies her dark material. She’s not afraid to share anything, and her warm nature takes the audience on a ride they don’t want to escape.

She’s traveled to All Jane and Flyover Comedy festival, and she’s appeared on Nerdist’s Fangirling. For more Anna, check out her two podcasts: 12 Questions, an in-depth look at sobriety, and Bruja-ja, where three Latinas dish on all things Latinx.
