Maria Ciampa is a marketing professional, actor, and writer based now in Portland, OR by way of Los Angeles, CA and Boston, MA.
She’s a graduate of Groundlings, UCB, and too many other improv schools to list. She has a B.A. in Economics from Smith College, and like you, she really wonders about the Fed's recent corporate bond buying tactics.
If this combo of skills resonates with you, Maria also leads corporate improv training for all types of organizations - and she's happy to help your team use the basics of improv (Yes, and...) to help you improve performance and collaboration in your workplace. She's worked with Philips, Edmunds, Harvard Medical, Boston University, and more.
Maria is also a voice over actor, and created and produces a podcast - Wrong Voicemail, Boston Edition, with her longtime, handsome husband. It's about a bunch of voicemails they got from Boston City Officials they don't even know.
Maria plays mob mistress “Skinnie Minnie” in indie film Sharkskin. She’s been on Lifetime’s “My Crazy Ex”, MTV’s “Girl Code”, National Geographic’s “The Numbers Game”, and tons of her friend’s comedic web series.
Oh hey, check out this sitcom pilot she shopped around recently. Still on the market if you want to work on that with her!
Maria is featured as Detective Bloomfield, a “gruff, grizzled woman of the law in pursuit of a mysterious serial killer known only as the Dickripper, " in the indie film Dickripper.
She’s in lots of commercials as a friendly banker, concerned jogger, and shrugging mom. Maria has performed at Groundlings, UCB NY and LA, PIT NY, Comedy Central Stage, Comedy Studio, and colleges, clubs, and festivals nation-wide. She currently does live shows and writes/produces sketch and TV with Radcliffe Comedy.
Maria is revising at least 2 pilots, 1 spec, and a bunch of sketches at any given moment. In 2008, she co-created HBO's Women in Comedy Festival with Michelle Barbera and Elyse Schuerman, and today it continues to feature the best emerging voices in comedy.
