Al Atkinson

Al started in entertainment in the 80’s doing standup comedy in LA and San Diego, actually making it to the finals of Funniest Comic in San Diego. Later, after studying acting at Strasberg and other locations he snagged a few roles in commercials and independent films. He was lucky to be picked up by NCT about 2005 and has been there since.

Nate Bratlien

Nate has been attending NCT mainstage shows as far back as 2010 and had always dreamed of being able to perform on their stage. In 2019 his wife signed him up for classes at NCT as a birthday gift, and from there his passion for performing improv grew. After being on the House Team Sans Comic for a few years, he is over the moon to join the SunCo cast. When Nate is not on stage, he’s usually playing disc golf or spending time with his family.

Becca began her improv journey in Philadelphia circa 2017. In 2021, shortly after moving to San Diego, she began her first class at NCT and was hooked ever since. From there Becca joined house teams, and is extremely excited to move up to SunCo to perform at the next level. When not making others giggle in the theater, Becca stays active by racing triathlons, hiking, and playing pickleball with friends. She is a die hard Philly sports fan and can recommend the best cheesesteak in town. GO birds!

Marc Guieb

Marc started taking improv classes at NCT in January 2022 and has been hooked ever since. He had a blast performing with the House Teams and is now excited to be a part of SunCo. When he's not making stuff up with NCT, you can probably find him fussing over his tri-pawed puppy, Jetta.

Randy Hamama

Randy has been entertaining friends/family from a young age where the love of comedy was born. Through the thrilling discovery of improv, inspiration took him through the workshops at NCT. This led to joining House Team, Cheap Date, and performing for nearly a year. Randy is speechless and thrilled to now be a SunCo cast member. When not on stage, Randy crunches numbers as a certified public accountant (not tax, sorry guys) and records comedy skits on social media.

Chris Hammel

Chris has been practicing Improv since 2014 when he took a Level 1 class with a few of his fellow Toastmasters. When he isn’t trying to make you laugh, or delivering a speech, or reading comics, he’s….actually he’s always doing one of those three things (I forgot eating, maybe I should edit this. NO! This is written improv!).

Analisa Reynoso

Maya was previously a member of the National Comedy Theatre’s house team, Just Us League, before being moved to the Sunday Company at the end of 2023. When she’s not improvising or working, you can find her walking her pup, trying out any and all types of workout classes, or out and about on her quest to find the best ice cream shop in San Diego.
