Profile Information

Professional Improv Troupe
A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
Lazy Fairy Improv Troupe was formed in 2008. We perform monthly at The Players Theatre and occasionally at the local furniture store, Home Resource. Our Sarasota based troupe performs a two-act show which is totally improvised from beginning to end.

Our newest venture is "Laughing Lunches" where we bum rush your unsuspecting employees with lots of laughter at lunch time. Or you may find us entertaining you at a private party. Wherever you happen to find us, know that our goal is to make you forget your worries while you enjoy a good hard belly laugh.

Call Christine to find out more: 941-312-2116 or email

It's just more fun to LAUGH!!!

Lazy Fairy's goals and bios

Improv is a form of theater in which there are no scripts and everything is made up on the spot using audience suggestions. 

   The Lazy Fairy Improv Troupe performs professionally at local venues throughout the year and is also available for special events and private parties, where every show is customizable and all ideas are welcome to suit your needs. Lazy Fairy conducts Team Building workshops from corporations to small businesses. And they are making a name for themselves around town with Laughing Lunches, where the troupe surprises unsuspecting employees with improv scenes and laughter to keep up morale and raise the bottom line with a positive, happy attitude in the time that it takes to eat a ham sandwich.   

     The Sarasota-based troupe was birthed in 2008 and performs a two-act, completely improvised show made up of short and long form improv scenes. Their goal is to make you forget your worries while you enjoy a good hard belly laugh. Comprised of seasoned actors and a piano accompanist with over 50 years of improv performance between them, Lazy Fairy Improv Troupe is dedicated to your laughter.

What they are saying:
• "The Players Theatre is thrilled to host the "Lazy Fairy Troupe." We have received numerous patron feedback regarding how good your guys are. I personally will not miss a performance since I think the troupe is the funniest thing I have every seen! I highly recommend other organizations and even individuals to book you for events including parties, weddings, birthdays, and even funerals! It is my pleasure to host “Lazy Fairy Improv” at The Players Theatre! ~ Michelle Bianchi Pingel, Managing Director - The Players Theatre

• "Congrats on a great show – my husband went and said he laughed so much his face hurt!" ~ Pam Karasy

• "It was great! We'll be back for more!" ~ Jimmy Dean

Bios: (photos by - visit the blog!)

Christine Alexander: Christine Alexander is an improv actor, a comedienne, producer and co-owner of the popular arts and entertainment newsletter, She is well known not only for making other people laugh, but also for her own enthusiastic laughing... or sea-lion imitation, depending on your opinion.

Bobby Brader: Discovering he had no game w/ the ladies at the halfway mark of his high school career, out of desperation Bobby taught himself to play the piano. After tickling the ivories for just over a year, he first attempted Stage Improv in an acting course his senior year at Sarasota High School. Just before graduating, he performed in Clue, the musical as The Piano Player. He took his first piano lesson when he was 18 as a college freshman. After he learned how to sing, he did a lot of acting with FSU Theatre, performing in main stage shows such as Sweeney Todd, As You Like It, and The Rocky Horror Show. Other former stage credits include Caiaphas in Jesus Christ Superstar, Sidney in London Suite, and Ren in Footloose. He is a 2008 graduate of Florida State University, where he studied Piano and Music Composition, obtaining a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Music. He is happy to be recently involved with Lazy Fairy as their pianist!

Catey Brannan: Catey, is happy to be a Lazy Fairy. Catey has performed improv and sketch comedy for 40 years. Before moving to Sarasota 2 years ago, Catey performed sketch and improv comedy in Denver Colorado with the Bovine Metropolis Theater, Mile Hi-larity improv troupe and 3 Queers and a Breeder sketch comedy troupe. Last spring she was cast in series of plays at Florida Studio Theater, called Under Six Too where she played a hippo and three (different) dogs. This stretched her acting abilities since she has never owned or mated with a dog. She has a theater degree from the University of Minnesota, at Morris and did graduate study in the LeCoq actor created physical theater method through Naropa University/London International School of Performing Arts. She is currently a Licensed Massage Therapist with a private practice in Sarasota. In her free time, Catey enjoys playing lazy tennis with opponents she can beat (like Tim Beasly!) She smells like Patchouli.

Darryl Knapp: Darryl is currently also a performing member of Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, Dear Aunt Gertrude in Tampa and Improv Addicts in Lakeland. See improv all over the state! Improv is Darryl’s drug don’t take it away from him. Soon to be on an upcoming episode of Intervention check local listings. He is happy to be performing with Lazy Fairy. You’ve got something on your shoe, no the other one.

Joey Panek: Joey thought he ended a 13-year professional stage career last year when he took a job in Social Media Marketing, but he’s found that “show biz” just won’t die! Joey spends his days at the HuB where his projects have transformed him into the Sarasota Elf and the Art Whisperer. Joey also teaches a dance fitness class and is studying to be a Ninja.

Last night you peaked into my family's traditional holiday activities and had the audience in stitches. I told you my mom insists we drink a lot of champagne and stay away from the hor's d'ourves and a consequence we all get toasted. You took the theme and created a thoroughly memorable rendition ...thanks for a great memory.
PS We are thinking of hiring you for a special event. Yes, we will feed you. Victoria Roberts

Hey Christine, OMG I just watched the video Translation for the Hearing Impaired on your site and was absolutely DYING it was SO FUNNY! I sent it to everyone on my list along with your schedule. I swear, Christine, if that isn't a regular feature of the show, it should be! If you got all that out of Latin I can just imagine the possibilities. MIND BOGGLING! Best - C

Hey, thanks for the add. I was wondering if the Lazy Fairy Improv Troupe had a Lazy Writer branch that, since you're improv, doesn't write for you, and if so if I could join? And then you could not perform the stuff I didn't write and (GASP!) OMG! I bet we could get a big ol' grant! Whaddaya think?

Hi Christine, Chris and all you Lazy Fairies --
Thanks for adding me to your Friends List. I wanted to let you know that sadly I am unable to be at the January 7th performance at the PLAYERS Theatre. I have a conflict which I cannot resolve. I am hoping that you will have a good response from the CUNY Alumni Group coming that night. Really sorry that I will miss your take on NYC, the Big Apple. I also wanted to mention to you that the Motto our group has adopted is "Big Apple Fun in the Sun". Don't know if that will fuel some sparks for you, but thought I would mention it.
Love, Eva
P.S. Clever bio Tim!

Wow! The Lazy Fairy Improv Troupe performed last night to about 40 people in the lobby at The Players Theatre. And what a show!! Those 40 people sounded like 200 when they were laughing! It was such a joy for us to take away their daily worries for just a little while. Some were overheating, some were "peeing in their pants" - it was a joy all around.

Thank you to our faithful followers (aka Bobby's family) and all the others!… Continue
