Gina Ippolito

Current Shows

Gina was born and raised in the great state of New Jersey and that plus the fact that she's 100 % Italian makes her one ripped t-shirt away from being a perfect Bon Jovi song stereotype.

A graduate of Penn State University, Gina is a writer and actor and has been studying improv and sketch comedy at UCB since 2007. Her UCB credits include Let's Do This!, Cagematch, Sketch Cram, The Tournament of Nerds, UCB Thanksgiving Day Parade, Maude Night and her spank show, a Twilight Zone spoof entitled The Nightfall Realm. Gina is also a member of the all girl improv team Slave Leia who has performed in the Del Close Marathon in New York, The Sarasota Improv Festival in Florida and the San Francisco Improv Festival as well as many LA improv venues.

Gina is very excited and honored to be a writer on the Maude team Goodman and is happy she was able to parlay her eighth grade title of "Class Clown" into a viable lifestyle.
