Natasha Boomer (aka Boom Boom, NataBoom, or Booms) has been doing improv since 1997 and comedy since 1996. In those 20 years she has done A LOT, seen A LOT, cried A LOT, laughed A LOT, paced A LOT, and got butterflies in her stomach A LOT. She has been teaching improv and sketch writing for nearly 17 years because she loves it. She has taught improv in hundreds of high schools across Ontario. She has taught at Second City, Bad Dog Theatre, Social Capital, GO Comedy Theatre in Detroit, and this weird theatre in London Ontario that one time. She once opened for Louis CK, was the founding producer of The John Candy Box Theatre, and ran the longest running weekly improv show in the city for 7.5 years called Wheel of Improv.
