Kaelan Sullivan

Kaelan Sullivan is originally from St. Louis, Missouri (Go Cardinals!) and has been hooked on improv since her first class at WIT.

Kaelan always admired the comedians of SNL growing up, particularly fellow Boston College alum Amy Poehler. Inspired by how important improv was to those comedians, Kaelan finally started classes in 2015 and has been spending the majority of her time on improv related adventures ever since.

Kaelan is a graduate of the WIT curriculum as well as Improv 101 intensive at Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC. She is currently a member of all female WIT Special Project The October Issue, and WIT Harold Team Tiovivo. She is also a member of independent team Trustfall and is Assistant Director for WIT production Improv Actually.

Kaelan Sullivan is originally from St. Louis, Missouri (Go Cardinals!) and started WIT classes in 2015.

Volunteering has been a great way to get to know more people in the WIT community. Its also allowed her to see a variety of shows and learn just how full of talent the DC improv scene is.

Improv helps Kaelan get back to the theatrical side she had performing in musical theater and dance growing up. She performs with indie team Trustfall and the FIST team Special Friends.

During the day, Kaelan works in international development in Eastern Europe and Central Asia with a USAID contractor. Its been an exciting way to learn more about the world, and hopefully make it a better place.

Kaelan is committed to establishing a positive classroom environment, mixing high energy, fun exercises with opportunities to try something new and challenge yourself. Kaelan loves seeing the way that each student finds meaning in improv, often finding herself emphasizing the mantra that improv lessons end up being good life lessons as well. She encourages all friends and some strangers to take improv classes because of how fun they are, and how much you can surprise and challenge yourself.

Student feedback

“Kaelan is wonderful! She offered a great perspective on improv and fostered a fun atmosphere.”

“Kaelan was always willing to answer questions and re-explain things if I didn’t understand right away. She was extremely enthusiastic and was very helpful in connecting the class to the improv community and local shows that we could attend.”
