About

Current mantras: Do your first thought. Trust in the first few lines. Have empathy for your own character.

Chris has been coaching with extreme passion since 2009 (performing since 2006).

Chris started studying improv in early 2006 and hasn't stopped since. Mostly at UCB & The Magnet, under (to name a short few) Armando Diaz, Kevin Hines, Will Hines, Anthony King, Joe Wengert, Chris Gethard, Billy Merritt, Christina Gausas, Shannon O'Neil, Benjamin Schwartz, Eliza Skinner, James Dwyer and many many others. Currently performs with NYC indie stalwarts THANK YOU, ROBOT (ask around... they know us) and with the UCB Lloyd team HOTCAKE. Teaches at UCB.

Just a few things he believes strongly about*:
- Game can make your life infinitely easier, not harder, and is more freeing than restrictive.
- That improv is theater and that shouldn't be ignored.
- Commitment to character and the scene is 80% of the struggle.
- Point of View is where we can anchor our characters and scenes.
- Don't be scared to be "boring."
- "Joy" is often over looked as an option.
- Long, slow monoscenes or follow-the-fun tag-out fests? It's all valuable.
- That, above all, we should do the improv WE want to do.

Also loves working on new forms and structures. And finding a team's voice. Works hard to create an environment where we work hard and have fun and keep things moving - while still making sure we are all having an open and safe discussion. Improv is art. Talking about it is good.
