Katie Rich (nee Riccio) was born on the south side of Chicago where she learned the art of speaking nasally and how to be extremely close to your family. She grew up to be a very tall and Italian young woman. She is one of the members of iO's (formerly Improv Olympic) all star comedy team, Carl and the Passions. Katie has written a few one person shows and performed them everywhere, including her recent showcase in Los Angeles where she met a bartender she really liked, but broke it off not too long ago. Distance, man. She is currently studying to be a clinical psychologist at Northwestern University and is trying to write something that someone will buy.
