  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 and teacher with 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.  She has recently studied improv intensively for two months at The Second City in Toronto.  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".

  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.

  Jay Overington   Jay discovered improv in 2016, at a show on a tiny stage in a dingy basement somewhere in Perth. He instantly fell in love with the drama and excitement of making characters and whole worlds up on the spot, and started taking improv classes the very next week.  Jay has since become a huge nerd and has studied and performed improv with Only The Human and other Perth outfits, as well as iO theatre, Bill Arnett, and Jimmy Carrane in Chicago. He likes his improv truthful, bold, and playful, and draws inspiration from such disparate areas as philosophy and clown.  Jay also likes cocktails and stationery.
