Annie BarryWashington Improv Theater
When not doing improv, Annie spends her time knitting scarves, taking polaroids, reading, and eating lots of food.
Annie Barry loves the art of improv comedy because she thinks it makes people more present and better listeners. She feels that staying fully in the moment and investing in each other is the best thing we can do with our lives. She also loves the feeling of laughing and tries to do it as often as possible.
She started her training at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater in New York City. She performed for two years on the Lloyd/Harold team Graceland. She guest played on the Hip Hop Improv Show “Take it Personal” at the UCB East. She also was on numerous indie teams including Midnight Snack, Bartholomew, Imperfect Strangers, Lizzies, Gentlemen’s Delight, and the Bird. Annie is proud member of Nox! The craziest bunch of weirdos this side of the Mason Dixon.
“Annie taught us patience and respect for each other; respect in the sense that we have to honor what the other person wants, even if it’s not what we want to do. Actually giving emotion in response to emotion, rather than just getting better at framing clever retorts.”
Annie has been acting since her smashing debut as "Teeny" the elf in her second grade play.
As a grown up, she studied and performed at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre in New York City from 2009-2014. After a brief stint in New Orleans, she moved to DC and is super pumped, excited, overjoyed, and flat out thrilled to perform with Nox!
She loves teaching improv, getting acupuncture, listening to The Doors, and discussing how bad The Doors movie was.
