Melanie Gart

Melanie Gart was first introduced to improv at the University of Florida – go Gators!

Since then, she’s studied at WIT, DC Improv, and ComedySportz, and has done several stints in Chicago for intensive training at Annoyance and iO. Melanie has put her skills to use performing locally and at the Del Close Marathon as a member of various DC-based indie troupes. She has also appeared on the WIT stage many times in FIST, Improvapalooza, and Seasonal Disorder shows. A self-avowed improv nerd, Melanie enjoys the improv classroom just as much as she enjoys being on stage.
