Past News



Shalimar Malimban drove thousands of miles across country, surviving torrential downpours, scorching heat, and four dollars per gallon to pursue her dreams in the big city – Hollywood. That would make for a remarkable story, but alas, I am a Los Angeles native. In college, I was a part of the Forensics Speech and Debate team, where I won the title of National Gold Champion in my favorite event – Program of Oral Interpretation. The real reward was connecting with competitors, judges, and teammates through my words. It was an eye-opening experience and it was in those moments that I realized I need to pursue my passion for performing and storytelling. I recently completed the iO West improv program, thanks to the Inclusion Program, as well as sketch writing at The Pack theater. I’m also a UCB Diversity recipient, (yay diversity)!  I’m currently enrolled at The Annie Grindlay studio. You can find me performing with my Second City Hollywood house team, Excelsior and driving around town in my Prius C, yes-anding life and getting an unreal 50 miles per gallon.
