Cheap Kitty is an all lady long-form improv group from New York City.


The group met in September 2008 in an Improv 401 class taught by Joe Wengert. They developed as a group through the power of emailing and g-chatting - and since most of the members had 9 to 5 jobs - they overshared and became quick friends. Their warm-ups in class usually reflected things they had discussed in prior email threads and the class as a whole was unusually cohesive. They were part of a larger group called Bruddy.


Gina Gatto, Jocelyn Guest, Melissa Gomez, Mary Carroll Wininger, Heidi Metcalfe and Jessie Frith.


They are coached by the lovely Tricia McAlpin.

They got their name because the ASPCA was having a two for one deal on cat adoptions. Heidi only adopted one cat.

They used to meet up at the Olive Garden on 22nd St before practices but were usually too full/tired to pay attention during practice, so they stopped.
