FESTIVAL HEADLINER – F*CKABLE
Fuckable – Los Angeles, CA

Fuckable is a 3 person improv team based out of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatres in Los Angeles. Three of the most iconically masculine specimens possible do a set of long-form improv. They are Will Hines, Mel Cowan & Jonny Svarzbein.
Will Hines is an actor and writer who has performed at UCBT since November 2000. He currently lives in Los Angeles, where he performers with The Smokes. He’s been on the TV shows “Broad City,” “Brooklyn 99” and “Inside Amy Schumer” and he also proudly played the character “Fat Professor” on CollegeHumor’s hit web series “Very Mary-Kate.” He’s written and starred in many sketch shows at the UCB in his day, including “Small Men” (co-written and co-starring Neil Casey) which won Time Out NY’s “Best in Sketch.”
Mel Cowan began performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in 2006, and has studied under Ian Roberts, Matt Besser, Matt Walsh, John Ross Bowie, Seth Morris, Sean Conroy and Owen Burke.

He has been a teacher at UCB since 2012.
He has appeared in Reno 911!, Parks and Recreation, Key and Peele, NTSF:SD:SUV, and a bunch of really silly commercials. Through the magic of editing, he is the one person who dies in the beloved children’s film Meet Dave, starring Eddie Murphy. He is a Texas native and a graduate from the University of Texas’ film program.
