Name: Sandy Velasco
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
After receiving her degree in Mathematics from UCLA, Sandy went against all that is logical and started to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
Comedy has always been a big part of her life so naturally she surrounded herself with people that made her laugh. She trained at the Lembeck Comedy Workshop, became an improviser through Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), and even learned sketch writing at UCB. And in 2017, Sandy makes her stand up comedy debut at the famous Ice House Comedy Club.
One of her proudest accomplishments was creating and starring in the award-winning comedy web series, Miss Guidance that has screened in numerous film festivals in Canada and cities across the US. Her performance garnered her a nomination for OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS in a comedy at the 2015 LA Web Fest.
Sandy is a self-proclaimed jill-of-all-trades who spends a lot of time thinking of, "how much is too much chocolate?" and how writing this bio seems oddly similar to writing her online dating profiles in the past. For more info, checkout her website: www.sandyvelasco.com.
She is so thrilled to be a part of the ImprovCity family and looks forward to seeing you at one of our shows!
