Robot Love (Hartford, CT)
Robot Love is a group of scientists trying to explain modern culture to a computer. Join them as they fail to break down humanism into smaller pieces that still make sense.
Formed in May 2016, this Connecticut-based improv troupe performs monthly as a house team at the Sea Tea Comedy Theater. Robot Love’s most recent festival performance was at HIF (the Hartford Improv Festival) in 2017. Members have a mix of training from Sea Tea Improv, multiple colleges, and the Upright Citizens Brigade. Individual Bios: As an active member of Sea Tea Improv, Helena Morris performs in a variety of shows and teaches improv at Sea Tea and corporate workshops. She has been studying improv since 2009, taking classes in theaters in the Midwest as well as with Sea Tea and UCB. Ed Richters started improv in 2015 with Sea Tea. Always the improv pirate, Ed sails the choppy seas in search of bold choices and zany characters. He does standup comedy, ran a successful open mic series out of a comedy club in his basement, and also performs with the improv team History of the Future. David Zboray has racked up over 900 hours in improv learning since beginning in September 2014. He completed Sea Tea’s training up through and including performance level classes and performed with such teams as HAT and Left Brain Right Brain. Conor began improv at UConn and now studies with Sea Tea, adding brilliance and quick wit to scenes as well as nonchalantly framing the unusual thing. He went to a Ruby Tuesday for the first time at age 19. He ate at least 1 calzone in 2015.
