Virginia LyonWashington Improv Theater
Virginia's entrance into this world was unscripted and she's been improvising ever since.*
Like many, Virginia leaned into comedy as a method for making friends, getting out of self-dug holes, and not having to pay for therapy. She started officially improvising in middle school with Destination Imagination, through high school with This is a Hold Up**, and into College with American University’s premier improv troupe Mission: Improv-able***. Since graduating AU, Virginia has been at WIT taking classes and performing in shows.
Virginia is best known for her one woman Creed tribute band Human Play-dough, a group that can be seen performing in such exclusive venues as street corners, bars, and most often Jeff’s Living Room.****
*Virginia’s mother would like it to be noted that she was indeed planned, but Virginia hopes you will forgive the lie for the sake of comedy.
**Virginia humbly requests that you don’t try to research This is a Hold Up. It’s better for everyone if we collectively agree to forget it ever existed.
***This you may research, only keeping in mind what we were all in college.
****Please do not notify Creed that Virginia is doing this. While she’s sure they would be, above all, touched she is also sure they would take issue.
