MEET THIS YEAR’S CAST
Yeehaw! Anna Baumeister is a Freshman Comedy Writing and Performance Major with a Minor in Writing for Television. She is so excited to be in her second show at Columbia after she participated in the Comedy New Stew her first semester. Anna is also the Theater Senator for the Student Government Association. Anna is from Jacksonville, Florida (Go Jags), but loves cracking jokes in the city of She-Cago!
Mathew Mitchell is a Freshman comedy major from the lawless but God fearing state of Montana. He’s performed at The Second City, for his friends, in the lobby, while waiting to go into an actual show that he and his friends payed money to see. He has performed on stage at The Comedy Bar a bunch of times, doing stand-up comedy that his parent’s neighbors have described as “a hoot.” Mathew is pumped to be apart of FreqOut
Matthew Snead is a Junior at Columbia with a focus in screenwriting for film. He makes sketches on Youtube and Instagram that his mom says are “downright hilarious” so that means they’re certified fresh. He’s originally from North Carolina, but has moved a total of five times including Albuquerque, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and now Chicago. Matthew’s favorite hobby is watching movies with friends, especially bad ones (cough cough Kirk Cameron Saves Christmas)
Matty Vergun is a Junior Comedy Writing and Performance Major with a double Minor in Writing for Television, and Women and Gender Studies. You can catch him performing all around this sweet sweet city at the Playground, iO, Second City, the Cards Against Humanity Theater, and other super hot venues (call ahead). To calm down after a long day, Matty likes to cry while listening to Fleetwood Mac. His hobbies include playing music, cheffing heavy, and decoding subliminal messages in this one CBS special report from 1982 about malls. Boom!
Tally Dully, Class of 2021, is a Comedy Writing and Performance major with a minor in Television Writing and Producing. Friend to all, wife to none. Tally is popular! She works hard to balance school, comedy, friends, and family. Being from Evanston, Tally didn't have to go far to find a home at Columbia and on this show for two years in a row. She can be seen on the stage or on the boat!
Madison Green is a sophomore comedy writing and performance major at Columbia College Chicago. This is her first time in the cast of FreqOut and she is so thankful for the opportunity. She’s from a small town called Northville in the great state of Michigan and LOVES showing people exactly where she is from on her hand. She loves playing piano and ukulele, singing, collecting vinyl records, dancing, annoying her family via FaceTime, and watching terrible YouTube videos with friends. She enjoys listening to John Denver and The Beatles, and describes her aesthetic as "postmodern groovy". She fiddles when she can and she works when she should.
Molly Gloeckner is a Junior acting major. Recent Columbia credits include Servant of Two Masters (Truffaldino) and God of Carnage (Veronica). Molly can be seen bringing wonder and joy to children this summer in The Selfish Giant at Otherworld Theatre. Molly is really funny and super hot and has so many friends. When Molly isn't acting you can find her signing autographs and being a literal kween. “Hi Mom.”
Jack Hollis is a sophomore at Columbia, majoring in comedy writing and performance with a minor in writing for television. He performs around Chicago with his sister on their improv and sketch teams, Children of Divorce and The Almost Weekend Show. He has probably already told you he’s from Georgia, and he can’t pronounce most words (so a live show should be interesting!)
Emma Chasse is a freshman Comedy Major at Columbia with a minor in TV writing! Emma is super excited for Freqout Live as she has never done this before! Emma is from Boston, Massachusetts and loves cats and speaking in a British accent!
Grace Roushdi is a comedy writing and performance major looking forward to graduating in 2020. Grace runs around this town taking names and giving hugs. She ENJOYS the occasional train delay, because then she has more time to see the beautiful rats of the red line.
Isabel Andrich is a Comedy Writing & Performance Major and TV Writing Minor in her Junior year at Columbia from Portland, Oregon. You can catch her bravely performing with her improv team Whine Night or cooking the same three meals over and over again. She’s really only here to fill the time before she can retire to an Italian villa, where she’ll be able to blast You and I by Lady Gaga in PEACE. Put those paws up!
