Side A(ll the Facts) 

Quick, grounded and sarcastically charming... (or at least that's what some people say.)

Originally from Essex County, New Jersey, Michelle Francesca Thomas graduated from William Paterson University with a blah blah blah, just check out her resume.

Michelle performs regularly with Gas Station Horror Show, Road Pizza Sketch and Electoral Dysfunction at The Peoples Improv Theater and PIT Loft respectively. She hosted and produced the long running variety show, The Anthology Presents: The B-Side. A Hip-Hop Comedy Show and was a Producer and A.D. for the UCB Comedy digital team, Frohnson & Frohnson. Past teams have included The Peoples Improv Theater's House Team Yes, Chef!, ComedySportz NYC and several indie teams such as Michelin, Nobody's Token and The Pin-Up Squirrels.

In addition to performing, Michelle is proud to be one of the Co-Directors of 10,000 Hours, a program created by her friend Julia Morales, to give improv students a better opportunity to have consistent inexpensive practice sessions. 

In her free time, she enjoys making sketch videos volunteering, baking, doing any silly activity and spending time with close friends and family; whom she is grateful to, for their continued support and love.


Side B(e Myself)

Things you probably wouldn't know about me, just by looking:

I spell my nickname Chelle not Shell. On rare occasions and when two or more Michelles are gathered, I go by Frankie. 

If I were a song, I'd be: "Another Star" by Stevie Wonder or "Golden Lady" (How can you choose!?!)

My father's nickname for me is: Tootsie...because I would take off my socks and shoes and throw them out of the crib when I was a's still the first thing l do when I get home. Only now, it includes, pants. I hate being in pants all day!

A few things I love: flowers (especially lilacs and orchids),  Christmas lights against the night, (the) Foo Fighters and of course big strong hugs, that energize you. 

In a perfect world: I would be a fearless reflection of love, all of the time.

I probably know just about every line in: Ghostbusters, Zoolander and Tango & Cash 

Podcasts I listen to:  In Touch Ministries, You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes, Black Men Can't Jump (in Hollywood), WTF with Marc Maron, The Bonfire with Dan Soder and Big Jay Oakerson
