Andrew grew up in a small town in southwest Colorado called Pagosa Springs. When he attended University of Denver, he thought he was going to be an engineer, but life had it’s own plans. He tried many different disciplines over his four years, eventually graduating in film, but the one consistent thing was his being a part of DU’s improv comedy team: Skintight Outrage. It is here where he met Alex, Alek, and David. After trying to go his own way post-graduation, Andrew is back in Denver, and is hoping to entertain people with his friends once again, reclaiming that sense of joy that has seemed to be missing.

David Painter (also known as DP, or Big D) is the benevolent, boisterous, and bricked up quarter of Bash&Burn with a mastery of cringe so great, you may never know if he’s really good at being bad, or just bad. He’s always looking for a bad pun to throw where it’s not needed.He’s done all sorts of things in different areas of the arts, from musical theatre in high school, to film and improv in college.

Alek is videographer and currently looking for the secrets of the universe. Currently however, he's to distracted throwing rocks in your local quarry.

Alex A was interested in improv from a very young age.
