Bryan learned that improv is the perfect place to set your silliness free.
Before Bryan started taking improv class he thought improv looked silly and didn’t get the appeal. But after his first class he was completely hooked and learned that their is nothing wrong with being foolish. He loves the freedom to be able to create anything and everything in the moment with other people who love doing the same thing. There’s nothing else like.
Bryan has trained at the DC Improv, Washington Improv Theater, and UCB NY. He has also taken workshops from a ton of people he looks up to, like Alex Berg, Will Hines, Ryan Karrels, Ari Voukydis, and many others. He coached WIT harold team Thank You For Sharing and was a member of the former WIT harold team Breaker Breaker. Currently he performs with WIT house team iMusical and some indie teams (Haddington Club, In Laws, Jackson Millissippi, and NIXON)
“Bryan is fantastic! He’s so funny and brings a great energy to the classroom.”
“His constructive critiques where helpful. And I like that he’s quirky and zany.”
