Carly Monardo is an artist and performer living in Brooklyn, New York. She first fell in love with improv as a spectator, watching people like Tami Sagher and Scott Adsit perform at UCB; it wasnt until wandering over a few blocks to Magnet Theater and watching Megawatt that Carly decided she had to join the fun! She started training at the Magnet in late 2011, studying with Rick Andrews, Russ Armstrong, Peter McNerney, Louis Kornfeld, Alan Fessenden, Elana Fishbein, and Megan Gray. She has since been featured on the acclaimed The Truth podcast, travelled to District Improv Fest with Circuit-turned-indie team Singles Cruise, and appeared in numerous shows at the theater, including Nick Mykinss Crosstalk. She is incredibly grateful and excited to be a part of Megawatt!
Outside of the Magnet, Carly (along with folk band Ibex) runs a variety show called Now We Are Friends, which happens the first Sunday of the month at the Parkside Lounge. NWAF was created out of Carlys love for indie acts (and pals!), and her goal each month is to provide a fun and friendly showcase for performers.
