Ezra Bedoya is a junior theater major looking to bring a big energy to Buffalo State's performance scene. Appearing in FNL and The Drowsy Chaperone as Aldolpho this semester, he is looking forward to bringing a lot of smiles to the stage.

Brayton Lydell is a senior at Buffalo State College, finishing up his last semester in the television and film arts program and Friday Night Live. Improv has given him the perfect outlet for using all the stupid voices he practices on long car rides, and he’ll miss FNL dearly when he graduates. Come see him be a fool for fun at any one of our performances this semester- or better yet, all of them!
Andy Noel is a senior theater major who acts and makes beats. Holla!
Sabrina Parsons is a K-12 art education major with a concentration in ceramics and drawing. She likes cheese, chocolate, and tea, so please bring her some if you can.
Colin Taylor is a junior television and film arts student and likes to make people laugh. Here's a fun fact: He once broke his knee while riding heelys. He is a new member of FNL and is honored to be a part of this amazing group.
