Chris Gropp has 13 years of Improv experience, but 34 years experience of being a goofball. He can currently be seen performing in Blockbuster and with The Chronicles, as well as producing RISE Comedy’s short-form team Laugh Track. Chris is known for his puppy-dog energy and his wild card choices on the stage, and his ornery playfulness off it. Improv has positively influenced Chris on so many levels, so he is excited to share his love of it with any and everyone who will listen!
