Amy Wilkinson

Born: London, UK 1982 and grew up there

Got involved in improv from a friend who I met at a Scene Study class at HB studio

Role models: Chevy Chase and Steve Martin (I love their idiotic sense of humor)

What I get out of performing: I love being part of a random group of people on stage which can both make me laugh as well as make other people laugh

Improv résumé: member of Wednesday Night Funny Improv troupe from 2008-2012; member of Sunday Night Improv September 2013-present

SEE AMY WILKINSON AT SUNDAY NIGHT IMPROV ON APRIL 24 AT 6 P.M.!

My teacher at Wednesday Night Funny was Tony Ballard

At Sunday Night Improv, I get a chance to laugh at myself and perform in an informal setting. It has gotten way more fun since the addition of the comfy leather sofa!

Most challenging improv moment: when I had to sing a Jap-pop ballad

Most rewarding improv work: the 'Cinderella' scene that was done in a practice session with Wednesday Night Funny

I haven't done any work in tv/film/theater

Improv is a creative outlet that helps me develop my quick-thinking skills

I was introduced to Sunday Night Improv by the lovely Krissy Garber, and have thoroughly enjoyed working with such a talented, down to earth group of improvisers!
