Just in time for the holidays, Improv Asylum’s Mainstage cast brings you their brand-new holiday show, Shopping Cart Wishes and Basic Ass Bitches. In this high-energy and audience interactive comedic performance, the cast uses sketch, improv, and music to explore common holiday questions like “where do our traditions come from?”, “where can I get the best gifts for my loved ones?” and “is my shopping cart capable of having its own desires?”

Looking for Main Stage Shows in 2020? Here they are!
Patty Barrett is a two-city renowned improviser, director, coach and leadership development professional. Her comedy career began at Suffolk University as a member of the award-winning improv troupe, Seriously Bent and right here at Improv Asylum as a member of the house team, Leather Gang and the NXT cast. She joined the mainstage in 2011 and never looked back! Well, except for the few years she lived in Los Angeles performing at UCB, iO West, Second City and that one time inside a Von’s parking lot. Outside of IA, Patty lives in Everett, develops leaders at two sneaker companies and has deep conversations with her cat, Ruthie, and her dog, Billie Jean.
Kelly studied Theater at Suffolk University where she got her start with improv as a member of the Nationally Award winning troupe Seriously Bent. Kelly has performed at The PIT in NYC, taken classes with Upright Citizens Brigade, and is an alumnus of IA’s NXT cast and House Teams. She is thrilled to be back for another Mainstage revue! She would like to thank her father for being her rock, her sister for being beautiful, and her friends and roommates for creating the best family a gal could ask for. She dedicates this and all shows to her mother. Let it be.
Matt got his start at Improv Asylum as a wide-eyed usher. He then went on to join House Teams and the NXT cast. He is also a founding member of the Just Suspects. When he is not at Improv Asylum he can be found writing about himself in the third person.
Anne likes improv! She started in college, and now she teaches improv workshops in schools and prisons in Boston. She is a Pre-K teacher by day, and enjoys playing pretend with children as well as adults. She is over the moon to be a part of this terrific cast, and is so thankful that at this job people pee their pants slightly less than at her other job.
Joey Lopez was an Air Force Captain and alum of the Air Force Academy before he threw it all away to pursue entertainment full time. Joey would like to thank his babe of a wife, Siobhan, for putting up with his Lego addiction, feeding him, and her constant support of his comedy pipe dreams. A big thank you to his friends and family for coming to shows. Special thanks to Bill Connolly, Marty Johnson, Kiley Fitzgerald, Ryan McFarland, Teddy Myers, Jeremy Brothers, Tony Passafiume, and Ryan Bernier for putting Joey on stage with people far funnier than him. Joey is one sixteenth Mexican… Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
Mark is excited to be a part of his fifth Main Stage revue. He is a graduate of Improv Asylum’s Training Center and is a former cast member in IA’s “All the Single Ladies”. Mark performs weekly with Improv Asylum’s House Team, Ghost Factory, and is an alum of Somerville based improv troupe Awkward Compliment. Someday he hopes to write a musical about health care or get drafted by an NBA team. He’d like to thank his family, friends, fellow cast members, and all of the great people at IA for all of their support.
