  • Kelly Cash
  • Kelly Cash wanders a waste of desert sands; a shadow of time and memory, waiting to loose its passionate intensity. On chosen evenings, when the sun drowns the innocence of the plains in its blood-dimmed tide and the darkness draws cold and taut across the tired throats of hungry coyotes and worn ranchers, Kelly Cash rides in from the west, a vexing nightmare, with but a lone purpose: to perform the improv comedy for you and you alone. Kelly Cash is Upright Citizens Brigade improvisers Ken Beck, Corey Brown, Sean Casey, Maelle Doliveux, Rocco Marrongelli, Jeff Miller, and Johnna Scrabis.
