Patrick Fleury

Patrick Fleury thinks that everyone should take an improv class because there are few greater feelings than looking stupid in a room full of other people looking stupid and loving it.

Starting in 2015, Patrick trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York, completing their Improv 101-401 course as well as participating in their advanced study program. He moved back to the DC area in September of 2017 and has dove headfirst into WIT’s community. You can find Patrick performing with WIT ensemble iMusical or his duo team Bugs. In addition to teaching, Patrick was also coach of WIT’s Featured Ensemble Lizard Girl.

Patrick loves every single podcast and is almost certainly trying to bake something from Mary Berry’s baking bible right now.

STUDENT FEEDBACK

“Patrick is a gifted, inclusive teacher with an excellent intuition for teaching. He was very good at managing the class, providing thoughtful and kind feedback, and made the environment positive and comfortable for everyone. He really gave us the culture that allowed us to thrive and really get to dive in and get to know each other and the improv—I feel so lucky I took his course.”

“It is so important to have teachers who understand implicit bias and how it may play itself out in an improv scene. I think Patrick did a great job of never letting those moments slide, and that made a huge difference for my comfort level. He never let disparaging comments about any marginalized group slip through the cracks or any comments about women or anything big, small or in between. In made a difference and I was really really happy to meet a teacher in an improv with that level of awareness and intentionality. I hope to see it across the teachers I encounter at wit. Please keep Patrick around—he has a gift for teaching!”
