Improv /
Musical Director


Faustino Solis is the Musical Director of ComedySportz Las Vegas and local Las Vegas troupes Bleach and One Take.

Faustino was introduced to improv in 2014 through the Improv Kingdom in Las Vegas. In the summer of 2016, Faustino later took his first drop-in workshops with Brent Mukai and Kopy Kopatich, then later with Darren Pitura and Derek Shipman of Vegas Theatre Hub. Faustino began attending jams and shows at Vegas Theatre Hub and The Spot.

In February 2017, Faustino attended a performance of Musical Megawatt of the Magnet Theater, his first exposure to musical improv at UCB Sunset. Having met musical directors Sam Johnidas and Tony Gonzalez of the Sam and Tony Show after the performance, Faustino decided that he wanted to play piano for musical improv in Las Vegas. Upon his return, Faustino bought his first electric keyboard and was named Vegas Theatre Hub's first Musical Director, assigned to accompany for the newly formed house team We Hot Bingo. In exchange for accompanying services, Faustino took his first improv level courses through the Hub.

Realizing the possibility of expanding the presence of musical improv in Las Vegas (there had been other groups performing musical improv prior), Faustino reached out to the Second City Training Centers for guidance. In a turn of events, Faustino visited all three Second City theaters by Amtrak train, training with Hughie Stone Fish in Los Angeles, Amanda Murphy in Chicago, and Ayaka Kinegawa in Toronto.

Since that summer, Faustino frequently teaches and performs in theaters and festivals around the country. Training programs include Vegas Theatre Hub, The Groundlings, ImprovBoston, and Second City Chicago. Notable teachers are Stephanie McCullough, Scott Passarella, Dave Asher, and Laura Hall.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting quarantine, Faustino founded the InterCity Long Form Improv Jam, an online improv jam aimed to support improvisers who are unable to improvise with a theater or troupe, connecting improvisers together from across North America and the world. As of January 2021, the organization was rebranded as InterCity Improv.
