History

Bombardo is a highly influential group in the independent improv community in New York. While inspired by Ms. Jackson they are one of the first all-female independent improv groups, in the indie improv team wave, to establish themselves and their success has encouraged many other all-female groups to form.

They were originally going to be called "Fish N' Tits." Their first coach, Shannon O'Neill, felt that the name would be a cliche for an all-female team and would wear out quickly. She encouraged the group to find a better name, so they came up with "Bombardo."

Kristin Rozanski and Sara Chase were in the original formation of this group but had to move on due to other commitments.

Coaches

Shannon O'Neill, Jessica Allen, Will Hines.
