Two goofballs. No plan. Every move is celebrated to make for hilarious unplanned comedy.
Rolland Lopez and Rich Baker met while both performing as secret agents of comedy in the signature show at the Westside Comedy Theatre – Mission Improvable. Rich knew he wanted to do some kind of project with Rolland. They agreed to try out a two man show and see how it went. After the first show they knew they’d stumbled onto something they both absolutely loved doing. Since then, RiR has performed at theaters and festivals all over the country – Dallas, San Diego, Las Vegas, Juneau, San Francisco, to name a few…they were even hired once to improvise with a lady over lunch at a Soup Plantation. And according to their respective mothers, Rolland and Rich are the most handsome boys in improv.
Rich Baker has taught at Second City Chicago, Second City Hollywood, Westside Comedy Theatre (Santa Monica), ComedySportz Chicago, The Comedy Shrine and Laugh Out Loud Theatre. He primarily makes his living teaching and coaching improv in Los Angeles.
