This weekend (Friday June 17- Sunday June 19) is the Hideout Improv Marathon in which 8 improvisors perform for 47 hours.

This is the 4th in a series of short profiles of each of the 8 performers. Read about them and then watch them slowly lose their minds over the course of the weekend during the 47-Hour Improv Marathon.

Katie Hartman lives in Brooklyn and this year’s out-of-town marathon guest! She is one half of the sketch comedy duo Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting which headlined Austin Sketchfest in 2014 and played at the Ladies Are Funny Festival (RIP) 5 years in a row.

1. What comfort item are you bringing?

I haven’t thought about this! Is this a thing? Like, maybe just a pillowcase full of cocaine? Or maybe i’ll borrow a couple kittens and put it in a pillowcase for 47 hours? I guess maybe I’ll have a pillowcase for definite.

2. What about the marathon most excites you?

To be in Austin and play with fun people!

3. What about the marathon most scares you?

I love sleep more than I love my mother. I’m scared my mother will find that out.

4. What’s your pump up jam?
