Michael HendrixWashington Improv Theater
Michael Hendrix believes that humans do improv as naturally as we breathe, but for some reason we start holding our improv breath when we become adults. He's been dancing the wild jig of improv for over a decade.
Michael spent 4 years in Chicago improvising with college troupe Occam’s Razor. Since moving to DC, he has performed in a wide variety of WIT productions, including the storytelling-focused show Lore, horror parody Die! Die! Die!, and romantic comedy Improv Actually, as well as with the ensemble King Bee and the Harold team Spirit Bear. Michael has taught WIT classes, regularly performs as one half of the comedy duo Big No No, and in 2016 he created and directed the improvised drama Citizens’ Watch.
Michael’s a big fan of all the imagination, spontaneity, and sincerity in improv. But the craft is hard to describe. It’s like A Framed Collage of The Best Mistakes. Or like A Reverse SOS From The Future Telling You You’re Gonna Be Fine, Go Eat Some Ice Cream. Or like A WhoDunnit Where Everyone Is The Detective and Everyone Is the Killer And It’s Tea Time, Cheers!
