Hope Richards

Of the three great loves of Hope’s life, Improv is the one that’s got her heart for good. They met in high-school, classic girl-meets-elective story. Things got serious in college when Hope joined ComedySportz. They began to explore and experiment when Hope joined the Sac Comedy Spot, heavily influenced by the UCB culture. This small city girl followed her great love and moved to LA: to be closer to Improv, to be able to grow together. She took classes at the iO West and watched as many shows as she could. Then she found The Pack Theater, her new home. She has performed with house teams Family Van, Big Yellow Taxi, Best Friends, and assisted with the Lady Invitational. She’s so excited to be on this amazing journey with the love of her life, and can’t wait to see what happens next.
