Joe is a Los Angeles based comedian, writer, and actor. He hails from Watertown, Connecticut but has spent half of his life in Los Angeles. Joe is one of the founding members of Second City LA’s teen improv program. When he was 18, he decided that he was going to quit doing comedy and become a serious actor. Like Sean Penn. It didn’t work out. All of his roles were comedic roles. He memorized Sean Penn’s ‘is that my daughter in there?’ scene from Mystic River so he can do that if you ask him nicely. You can catch Joe on numerous TV shows, films, and national commercials. Locally, you can catch him on stage with Pack Sketch Team, Patsy or improv teams Harold Ramis and Bunker. He has a blind dog named, Bear.

Brandon Raman is an actor/comedian from the Bay Area who takes his comedy so seriously that he is rarely ever funny. After a sketch he wrote went viral, which landed him on the front page of Funny or Die and Tosh.0, he moved down to LA where he studied sketch and improv at The Pack Theater and UCB, along with getting his BA in Screenwriting at Cal State University Long Beach. When he’s not performing comedy, he’s helping to make it (on the production side) for companies like FX, Netflix, Nickelodeon, and more. And he is beyond grateful that The Pack is allowing him to get as weird as he wants on their own stage.
Acting credits include sketches/commercials/pilots for Above Average, TruTV, Comedy Central, CollegeHumor, Funny or Die, Disney Interactive, Youtube RED, and a couple others.

Andrew is an actor, improviser and writer from the incredibly small rural town of Unadilla, Nebraska. He’s trained and performed in sketch and improv at IO West, Upright Citizens Brigade, Playhouse West and, of course, The Pack Theater.
After recovering from the utter terror of adjusting from driving on dirt roads to the 405 Andrew dove headfirst into the LA comedy community in an attempt to make financial gain from a lifetime of neurosis and loneliness. His work tends to veer towards the incredibly nerdy so don’t be surprised if he breaks down in joy if you get his obscure Batman references. Seriously….if you mention the Calendar Man you have a friend for life whether you want him to be or not.
