Jordana MishoryWashington Improv Theater
Jordana Mishory spent her 15th birthday playing improv freeze tag with her theater buddies. Prophetic, really, because now it's a party every week creating scenes with Fisticuffs!
A graduate of Washington Improv Theater’s training program, Jordana teaches at WIT and plays with indie troupe Cake Bagel, all-female super-group Sweater Kittens and former WIT Harold Team People Like Us — where she spends most of her time onstage trying not to giggle at her hilarious teammates. Jordana also has trained at UCB Theatre in New York. She’s performed at the Chicago Improv Festival, North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, District Improv Festival, and the Del Close Marathon.
Jordana cooks, cleans and fishes more in scenes than she does in real life. Despite loving to make things up, she couldn’t come up with a better name for her cat than Namey.

Jordana Mishory's improv journey began in 2011 when she said “yes, and” to signing up for a WIT class.
She then promptly fell in love with the art form and its community and went on to complete the school’s training program. Jordana performs with WIT Harold Team Fisticuffs, indie troupe Cake Bagel, all-female super-group Sweater Kittens, and former WIT Harold Team People Like Us — where she spends most of her time onstage trying not to giggle at her hilarious troupemates. She has also performed in Improvapalooza, Seasonal Disorder and FIST shows, tackling such weighty issues as R. Kelly’s “hip-hopera,” the Sweet Valley Twins and the meaning of Hanukkah.
Jordana sees improv as a great way to unlock the fun inside and can’t wait to help new students fall in love with it, too!
“Jordana is passionate about improv–she made the class a lot of fun and pushed me to try new ways of playing.”
“Jordana is great! Very patient, animated and fun-loving. She included everyone and facilitated tons of fun games and activities!”
