Vaudeville Performing Arts

Causing scenes throughout Central Florida


Gone, but not Forgotten!

Adam Carter

Adam was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and lived in Orlando for college for 4 years. During this time, he tried to figure out what his passion was after a significant moment happened in his life. It wasn't until Summer 2013, when he took classes at Truthful Acting Studios, that gave him a life-changing move. Adam is now a Meisner Graduate from the Studio, and will always be a member of the Vaudeville Central Florida Improv and Performing Arts. 

He currently lives in South Florida.

Angel Libertado

This is Angel. Enough said.

Carl Arrington

His true passion is art of any form and his life is a continual performance. Also a trained vocalist, he assists Cristen with the troupe's vocal training. He hopes that you enjoy his sarcastic and dark sense of humor.

*Caution: He is known to bite when provoked.

Carmen Borja

Carmen is originally from Queens, NY. When she's not busy putting out fires at work, she's having a blast with her TA family. Spending quality time with her loved ones is the most important thing to her, and, of course, partaking in the occasional retail therapy doesn't hurt either. She does what she loves and she loves what she does!

Christopher Ivers

At the tender age of 12, the heavy realization had set fully upon a crestfallen Christopher - his acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry simply wouldn't be coming. Disheartened and only slightly disillusioned, he set out from his humble roots in the Shire to become a Jedi Master. Then, one fateful day, profound in his studies upon the planet Earth, Destiny struck. A new power began to course through Christopher's veins; a dark power: potent, pure, ancient beyond comprehension...that power...was The Pun....It was from thence on, Christopher swore an oath (in German) to wield this power to its' wurst potential - spreading groans, eye rolls, and knee

                                         slaps to the furthest reaches of the multiverse. Obtaining the Circlet of Comedy                                          (+5 to eye rolls) as his crowning achievement.

Cristen Lewis

Cristen, a Master of Awesomeness in training, has recently joined VCF as vocal coach, crew, and bouncer. Please do not walk up behind Cristen and scare her; you might not survive it.

In her spare time, she enjoys crocheting hats for house elves and lightsaber cozies (kinda like a tea cozy, but…not).

Don’t tell her we told you this, but we’re all scared of her. She bites. Hard.

Daniel Alonso

Daniel is an amateur improvisational comedian and has been active since early 2015. Although graduated from the University of Central Florida for Experimental Studies in Animation, Daniel's passionate interest in comedy of both the written and improvisational forms is something that has followed him since the early days of his adolescence. He studied the basics of improvisation with local students through UCF's club, The Improv Academy, during the 2015 spring semester, before joining Vaudeville Central Florida Improv & Performing Arts.  He currently lives in Miami.

Now he's in Los Angeles.


Born and Raised in Chicago, Jawana is a diverse artist. Her goal in life is to artistically pull a successful Pinky and the Brain. She fell in love with acting when she realized it was the only profession that would allow her to whole heartedly immerse herself in all of her interests, travel to eras that are no more, and live them as if she were there. All in the name of ART. 

Let Art reflect Me, and I reflect Art. For We both are the true essence of Life.”

Matt Townsend
Matt came to us all the way from Terre Haute, IN. He is a graduate of SAK Comedy Lab and loves and misses his former fellow improvers. If you're looking for a tough guy, keep scrolling down, as Matt's favorite non-improv things are chick flicks and musicals.

Mackenzie Martinez

Mackenzie Martinez has been involved in the performing arts since she was a young child. She first got into acting when she was in High School and performed in a number of productions. While in school she was part of an invitation only Shakespearean class that gave her the opportunity to perform various lead and supporting roles in some of Shakespeare's most infamous works. During her time at The University of Virginia’s-College at Wise Mackenzie worked closely with the theater department. One of her more prominent roles was as Dracula in the production of Dracula. As a bold casting choice the box office was sold out each night to see a typically male role  reversed. As time went on Mackenzie found herself drawn to film. She has played in multiple roles from a strong heroine to a down and out druggie trying to get her life together to a woman in love. Mackenzie is trained in both the Meisner and Strasberg techniques. She most recently trained in Sketch Comedy as well as performed on stage at The Village Theater in Atlanta, Georgia. Mackenzie is extremely grateful for the support of her friends and family in chasing her dreams and acting career. She is looking forward to a long, successful career as a working actress. 

She has recently moved to Los Angeles.


Pavie Vega

As the founder of, Pavie has no doubt of her worth...and neither do the plethora of men who clamor to serve her. 

As a comedy performer, she serves as a model of poise, confidence, and sass. Just ask her. When not performing or keeping her men in line, she enjoys acting like she's posing for magazine covers on other people's exotic sports cars, stamp collecting, and photobombing vacationers' photos at various tourist traps around Central Florida.

Sean Philippe

Sean has been lost. He went out for tacos one night and never returned. He was wearing pajama pants, red and white striped penguine socks, and his "Vote for Trump" t-shirt (we don't judge). If you see him, please let us know. We miss him very much.
