Anna Rubanova

Anna Rubanova is an improviser on the team Sandino, a writer for Beta team The Punch and founding member of Left Handed Radio, the best podcast ever.

She spends a lot of time writing and directing sketches, editing audio, coaching improv, playing with her camera, questioning her life's decisions and occasionally appearing on television. Besides writing comedy for a living, Anna hopes to one day be a voice on a cartoon - or maybe even a scientist! She's actually been in a few short cartoons already but has yet to discover the formula that converts Rock 'n' Roll into medicine.

Some day...
