Defiant Monkey Improv is a two-person improvisational group that creates on-the-spot theatre based on audience suggestions and participation. Performers Karen L. Eichler and Andrew M. Spragge are experienced improvisers, actors, corporate trainers, and teachers who love to have as much fun as possible.
Karen has improvised on stages across the country and in Canada since 1997, working with ComedySportz of Buffalo and The Second City in Toronto. In addition, she has been a children’s performer and storyteller with The Wondermakers and Dramatic Solutions since 2000. Karen has a Master’s degree in education and has been a university professor since 1997, most recently teaching public speaking and tutoring.

An accomplished actor, director, children’s show performer, and corporate trainer, Andy is also a graphic designer and worked as an elementary school science and math teacher.
