The Scoundrels are four friends from some of iO's best house Harold teams joined together to perform improv from a place of "do no think, just go".
Jeff Murdoch hails from the great state of Michigan where he first started training in improv comedy around the Metro Detroit area before he continued his studies in Chicago. It is in Chicago where Jeffrey really fell in love with comedy performing with his best buds in the theaters around town in sketch and improv. Jeff has also had the privilege of performing for the Second City's touring boat company aboard the NCL Gem. He loves Nashville for too many reasons to count (BBQ)!
Spencer Ham studied theater at the University of Missouri, where he received the (venerable?) Tom Berenger acting scholarship. Upon moving to Chicago, he studied improv at iO, where he currently performs with the Harold team, Sears Tower. During the day, he writes for the game You Don't Know Jack.
Vince Portacci, a native Nashvillian and a proud Auburn Tiger, has been studying and performing improv for the past five years. He has studied at iO, formerly the Improv Olympic, and The Second City's conservatory program. Vince is lucky enough to perform weekly at iO, The Playground and The Annoyance Theater. Vince and Jeff even were hired by Second City to perform sketch and improv on The Norwegian Cruise-line together last year.
Ross grew up in Naperville, Illinois. After college, he studied improv at iO, where he currently performs with the likes of JaJaJa, FourSided, and the Harold team, Dart. You can see him perform comedy all over the city of Chicago. Last summer he made his national television debut as a pleasant murderer on ABC's Final Witness.
