Get to the know these funny people.

Frank Storace

Mike Mahern

Mike Mahern

Troupe Member

A co-founding member of Nuts & Bolts, Mike has been an integral member of the group ever since its inception (assuming you don’t take into account his 11+ year hiatus to get married, make babies and watch TV). Keen satarist, quick witted, dashingly handsome, well endowed – these are just a few terms Mike keeps hoping people will start using to describe him.
Bryan Adams

Derek DeSol

Entering another full season with Nuts & Bolts Comedy Improv, Derek DeSol has earned the title of the troupe’s unabashed meat head. His previous comedy experience includes acting like a jackass on morning radio in the mid-2000’s, writing and performing in Left Hand Blue Sketch Comedy and working with Frank Storace and Bryan Adams to organize and perform in the Nuts & Bolts Movie Mockery of Road House at The Little Theatre.
Jeanne No

Jeanne No

Troupe Member

Jeanne No is holding down the fort as the only girl in Nuts and Bolts. She has happily been part of the troupe since 2008. In addition to NaB, Jeanne has also performed with Seoul City Improv (SCI) for two years while living in Seoul, South Korea. It’s okay if you are jealous of how awesome Jeanne looks in animal onesie pajamas.
Jesse Edmond

Jesse Edmond

Troupe Member

Jesse Edmond was always told he was funny. Upon joining up with Nuts and Bolts, that sentiment turned out to be pretty true. Taking a hiatus for nearly ten years, Edmond was in a number of independent films, including lead roles in Spinning Grave’s “Enter the Dagon” and Curt Markham’s epic “Saberfrog,” earning a Bacon number of 3. Edmond returned for the 14th Anniversary show and has elected to stay on, indefinitely.
Scott Hildreth

Scott Hildreth

Troupe Member

Scott is a standard human male who resides on the continent of North America: more specifically, in the country collectively known as the United States of America: more specifically, in the state called New York: more specifically, in the city of Rochester.

Scott enjoys doing stuff and likes owning things. When he’s not busy working at a job or performing, he can be found doing the aforementioned stuff and enjoying his things with a girl that he really, really likes.

Scott has been a member of Nuts & Bolts since just about the beginning. He also enjoys peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.

Rich Caniglia

Rich Caniglia

Troupe Member

Rich Caniglia has loved weather since he was very young. It’s convenient, then, that he has been reporting on the weather since he was in college. Since 1999, he has delivered the best weather coverage in Rochester on News 10 NBC!
We say this because, for the past few years, he has been the host of Nuts and Bolts, lending the same quality of presentation to each thrilling show!
