English Speaking Moose is a Los Angeles-based improv and sketch comedy group, and current resident team at IO WEST.


Officially formed in November 2009, English Speaking Moose was made up of three longtime friends and award-winning performers who manipulate time and space, command the elements, and forge history in their wake.

They were originally the house team of IO WEST's Ok, Intriguing Comedy Show every Wednesday. Next they became part of Saturday night's ADT Smash Night series. Then they started hosting their own show, still running, every Tuesday in the Del Close Theater at iO West called The One Hour Improv Festival.

At one time the group was only a two-person show with Markeia McCarty and Keith Saltojanes. In Spring 2011, new members were added to the cast including Miles Stroth (of The Family) and Emily Candini (of The Annoyance Theatre). Now these talented performers continually pushes themselves to the limit; with relationship, game, and story based scenework, you never know what to expect, but you always know it will make you both laugh and think.

In 2010, the members are the group wrote, directed, and performed in a sketch comedy pilot television show for IFC. Currently, the sketches from the first episode can be seen on Funny or Die.


Former members include:
