Benjamin Buchholtz

Ben’s improv journey began when he said ‘yes, and’ to being born in 1985. However, it wasn’t until 2014 that he took an actual improv workshop, offered by Blind Tiger Comedy in Vancouver. It was a ton of fun, so he took another. In 2015, he moved back to Edmonton and began volunteering at Rapid Fire Theatre. That’s when things got serious. The public workshops became a monthly addiction, and he was given the chance to audition for the Rookie ensemble. Which leads us to now, which is happening as you read this. As a Rapid Fire Rookie, he’s eager to step up to the plate and do other sports metaphors. When he’s not improvising, Ben has been known to enjoy watching bad horror movies, cut hair in his kitchen, and play board games deep into the night.
