The OTH team have studied at improv institutions and conferences around the world, including iO (Chicago), Second City (Chicago), The Pack Theatre (Los Angeles), The UCB (Los Angeles), Impro Australia (Sydney), Improvention (Canberra). Our improvisers have trained with industry professionals Miles Stroth, Brian O'Connell, Emily Candelini, Dave Razowsky, Patti Stiles and Fabio Maccioni.

Gabrielle Beasley Gabrielle Beasley trained as an actor with Cynthia Coatts and Mick Barnfather (Complicite) in London and performed with Little Cauliflower Theatre, Pleasance and Tricity Vogue at Edinburgh Fringe and venues around London and south-east England. Having formed a ukulele trio called The Marauders while still at school, she performed musical comedy with them in London for many years and appeared as a jazz vocalist at the Roundhouse, Camden. She moved to Perth in late 2016 and began training with Only The Human. Since then she has performed with them at The Comedy Underground, FringeWorld 2017, Fremantle Comedy Factory, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Infinite Jest, and Comedy Lounge.

Sonny Yang Sonny began performing stand-up in 2014, quickly gaining a reputation as being one of WA's most eccentric and wholly original comedians, known for his distinct absurdist style and 'take-no-prisoners' attitude. In 2016, he took out awards for Best Writer, Best Joke and Comic's Choice at the annual Perth Comedy Awards. In 2017, he premiered his show 'Sonny Yang vs Fringe' to sold-out crowds and critical acclaim at the Perth Fringe World Festival and performed in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as part of the 'Perth Comedy Roadtrip'. He made his first foray into improvised comedy joining OTH in 2015 and has since been an invaluable member of the performance ensemble.

Jaleesa Maher Jaleesa Maher is an improviser, teacher and director of Only The Human. Jaleesa joined OTH in early 2016 after a friend asked her to come along to an improv class one fateful Friday night. Jaleesa has performed improv with OTH at many comedy shows and in many Perth rooms, including The Comedy Underground, the Feminist Comedy Night, Perth FringeWorld 2017, Comedy Lounge, Infinite Jest, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and sometimes in public where it’s really not appropriate to perform improv. When not improvising/teaching/directing OTH, Jaleesa can be found watching YouTube vlogs and ranting about the patriarchy to anyone who will listen.

Patrice Maher Patrice began performing at a young age as a dancer and an actress in school plays, but she yearned for more. The small-time family productions for her younger brothers and witty banter with friends unfortunately wasn't cutting it anymore.  Everything changed, when she discovered OTH in early 2016 and began studying improvised comedy.  Patrice began exploring a myriad of characters, situations and formats, manipulating them into comedic gold. She has quickly gained a reputation for her quick wit, silver tongue and risqué humour.  In 2017, she performed in "OTH: Live" at the Perth Fringe World Festival and has also performed in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as part of the 'Perth Comedy Road trip".

Victoria Burrows Vicky loves life, therefore Vicky loves seeing and creating life on stage. Vicky graduated from John Curtin College of the Arts, started a Theatre degree and then had ideas about changing the world. Whilst she hopes she has changed the world the best way she can, she knew that performing was in her bones and she couldn't stay away for too long.  She has been doing Improvisation since she watched a Fringe Show in 2012 and said, I can do this, I should be doing this! Vicky has studied Improvisation with The Big HOOHAA, Just Improvide and OTH. She is a member of the Big HOOHAA Ensemble and a Committee member of Pendulum Improv. Vicky also loves to sing and dance and any opportunity she gets she will bring that to the stage. She doesn't think she' very funny, more people laugh at her but not with her! Oh well fun to be had :)

Cody Fullbrook  After studying film and radio, Cody turned his back on the camera and microphone when he fell in love with the stage.  With plays, musicals and a bit of stand-up under his belt, he moved on to writing and directing with such productions as ‘The Kraken’ at Phoenix Theatre and the offbeat musical ‘GOTO Hell’ for Perth FringeWorld 2018.  While still doing some occasional screen work in commercials and films, he does some party entertaining, hosting and voice over.  ‘Only The Human’ welcomed Cody in 2016 and has been performing, teaching and playing with them ever since.

Nick Maro Nick has been doing stand-up comedy for over 5 years. He's had stand-up shows in Perth and Adelaide Fringe. Nick could be considered a moral detective, dismembering difficult subjects with the ease. Beneath the erratic and energetic exterior, something darker, dirty and more interesting lurks. And that always makes for an interesting show. Nick started improv with Only The Human in 2015 and has quickly become a stalwart of The Perth Improv Community.
