Bridget Cavaiola


  • What are your other hobbies?
    Hanging with my dog at all of the San Diego dog beaches, reading, pop culture junkie.

  • If you weren’t doing improv, where would you be? In high school, my senior yearbook said my future plans were to be a Talk Show Host, so I would probably kicking the patriarchy out of late night talk television.

  • What is your favorite improv scene you’ve been in? Riding on a piano bicycle with a beautiful group picture and one of my teammates fell out of the improvised side car.

  • Who is your comedy idol? Certainly my favorite funny ladies: Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Carol Burnett, to name a few!

  • 10 words or less of what improv means to you? Creating magic through the beautiful process of connection.

  • Where will you be in 10 years? Petting dogs, close to the beach, and riding in my driverless car (please!?)

  • Anything else we should know? Battle me in an 80s/90s sing off….especially television theme songs. I’m your gal.
