Who is Huzzah!?
We are Andrew Marshall and Kari Smit, performing original sketch comedy in Portland, Oregon with a rotating cast of our best friends.
How did you get started?
We met a few years back in improv classes at the Brody Theater and performed around town with our improv group, the Fan Club. After disbanding, we both ended up on house teams at Curious Comedy Theater and ended up in some sketch classes together and boom, the rest is history.
Why do you have to use an exclamation point after your name?
It's fun! It makes people happy! Hooray!
You can combine an exclamation point with a question mark to form a punctuation mark called an interrobang. It's a real thing. You can also use it as a name for your next improv group. You're welcome.
Kari has a Master's in Book Publishing and never gets to use it.
Andrew travels a lot and likes to sing Fugazi at karaoke.
