Chicago improviser: Chase Ingrande

Chase Ingrande

Chase Ingrande was born in Las Vegas, Nevada in February 1994. He likes comedy, food, music, dancing, acting, singing, painting, drawing, taking pictures, being in pictures, learning, and making people laugh.

In September of 2008, he moved to Idyllwild, California to develop his crafts as an artist and performer. There he pursued the Visual Arts Major for one year and a Musical Theatre Major for three years. He graduated from the Idyllwild Arts Academy in June 2012 and was the speaker on behalf of his senior class.

He moved to Chicago, Illinois in August 2012 to learn how to bring his talents into the world by studying a degree in Theatre at Columbia College Chicago with a concentration in Acting. Recently joining the Columbia College Improv Club and the school's division of Titanic Players, Chase has rediscovered his love of improv and hopes to grow in this field. He has also discovered a newfound joy in stand-up comedy, performing under the name MERMAID. Chase currently lives in Chicago with his roommates and his fish named Hot Sauce.
