Ceci De Robertis

Ceci De Robertis was so terrified when she first started improv in 2012 that she threw up before her 1A showcase.

Before long, she realized the stage was fun and fell in love with the art! A graduate of Washington Improv Theater’s training program, Ceci currently performs with the all-female super-group Sweater Kittens, You’re Invited, the all-Spanish improvised telenovela Sábado Picante, and Improv Actually. She coached the WIT Harold Team Wallawoo, and previously performed as part of the program with teams Knife Club and Discoteca. Ceci has also trained at Reckless Theater in New York City and performed at the Chicago Improv Festival and the Del Close Marathon. Ceci was also an understudy for The Second City’s Almost Accurate Guide to America during its summer 2016 run at The Kennedy Center

Ceci is an insatiable animal nerd, especially the ones that are not fuzzy and do not have backbones.  She is delighted by animal facts (even ones she already knows). Ceci loves to geocache, scuba dive, and fuss over her baby shrimp 50-gallon aquarium and pet parakeets, Chivito and Mate.

Student feedback

“Ceci was lively and engaging. She makes it easy to participate”

“Ceci created a lovely risk-free, anything goes environment, which was so nice. Sharing her own path to improv laid a nice foundation to help make everything immediately comfortable.”
