Julia Rocchi

Julia Rocchi is the first person in her family to get involved with improv, and due to relatives' confusion/anger about their word not being used as the show's suggestion, she will likely be the last.

Julia is a founding member of long-running, ever-smiling indie troupe Cake Bagel, where her contributions include managing the team’s Google calendar and playing emotional middle-aged mothers on stage. She has completed the curriculum at Washington Improv Theater and taken Mark Chalfant’s Narrative and Storytelling elective. Community theater credits include Laura in “Fuddy Meers” and Hope Harcourt in “Anything Goes,” as well as a turn in DC-based Hexagon Theater’s 2009 production, “What So Proudly We Bailed.”

Julia’s first artistic love is creative writing, so when not lost in calendar management, she is drafting, revising, and aiming to reach 100 rejections by the end of the year. True to her Italian-American roots, she takes every available opportunity to buy people’s affection with home-cooked meals.
