Meet Our Cast

Tane Danger


Tane has been performing, directing, and teaching improv comedy since 2003. After stints working for the state, local and international nonprofits, and some political campaigns, he thought, “Isn’t there some way to bring improv into all this?” The Theater of Public Policy was born! Tane still has a tough time explaining what he does for a living to his parents.



Brandon Boat


Brandon has been performing improv for over a decade and in the meantime has lived in South Korea, worked in affordable housing through AmeriCorps, and interned at the Center for Victims of Torture. He currently serves on the Board of Young Nonprofit Professionals Network Twin Cities. He never apologizes for being from Iowa.





Andrew Haaheim is a biology teacher at Fridley High School, where he coordinates a high school improv troupe and various arts performances for the district. Andrew also participates in musical groups around the Twin Cities as a drummer and percussionist.





Kelly Kohlbacher has been improvising for over 10 years in the Twin Cities, along with that one time in St. Cloud. She is a copy editor by day and whiskey drinker by night. When not performing with The Theater of Public Policy, you'll find her brewing beer, making smoothies, and celebrating the Oxford comma

Jim Robinson is a veteran of the Brave New Workshop, Disney Cruise Lines Off-Beat Comedy Club, and 30 years of teaching at various colleges.   He loves improvising, which lead him to say "yes, and" to being the English voiceover for the aged monk and corrupt cop (and "thug-in-yellow") in the Nepalese martial arts film "Gorkha Protector" (available on YouTube, etc).





Kory LaQuess Pullam is so happy to join such a stellar group of folks! Born and raised in Texas, he graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with his BFA in Acting and Directing.

A feminist and lover of classic literature, Samantha performs with an all-female Improvised Jane Austen troupe (Manners & Misconduct), as well as an improvised Shakespeare show (Juliet & Juliet) with her brilliant duo-partner.

Improviser Carmen contributes a vivid imagination, bold characters, and genuine physical awkwardness.  Licensed attorney Carmen brings her knowledge of legal and policy issues to the group.  During shows, the audience watches in real time as these two Carmens thrillingly conflict and reconcile with each other and with equally complicated cast members.
