Rick and Laura met in Chicago, driving around in a crowded van with the touring company of the Second City. Since then they have gotten married, had two kids, and moved to Los Angeles. There they continue to perform, write and teach, both separately and together.
Laura Hall is best known as the improvisational pianist on television’s "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" She was also on the "Drew Carey Show" live episodes, and has toured the country doing live performances with "Drew Carey and The Improv AllStars." Laura has sat in and played with tons of improv groups in Chicago and L.A., including The Groundlings, iO, ComedySportz and Theatresports.
Rick Hall was a founding member of Chicago’s "Improv Institute." After touring with the Second City, Rick opened two main stage shows, "John Paul Sartre & Ringo" and "Catch 27." Rick has used his improv background on the improv based television shows "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and as a series regular in "The Factory." He’s been seen on many other television shows as well, including "Saving Grace," "24," "The Middle," "According To Jim," and "Seinfeld."
Rick & Laura teach improv workshops at camps, colleges and theaters around the North America. They especially like helping people who are scared out of their minds about doing song improv to find out it’s really fun and something they can do successfully.
Now they are heading to the Toronto Second City Training Centre to teach two musical workshops on February 21st and February 22nd
