Improv Program Head Levels A-E
Ashley Comeau is an improviser, producer, actor, instructor and writer from Canada. Ashley is a Second City alumna who wrote and starred in three revues at The Second City Toronto which garnered her a Dora nomination and a Canadian Comedy Award nomination. She was named Best Female Improviser in Toronto from NOW Magazine’s “Best Of Awards 2015”.
She performs all over the world with her comedy duo – The Lusty Mannequins. It is comprised of Ashley and her partner, Second City alum Connor Thompson. They’ve performed and taught in Ireland, Spain, Germany, England, Canada, USA, on the high seas* (*with Second City Theatricals), and they just got back from headlining the first Mama City Improv Festival in South Africa (which she co-produced).
Select improv shows include; Songbuster – An Improvised Musical (Factory Theatre, Bad Dog Theatre), Theatresports (Bad Dog Theatre), Patron’s Pick Winner, Best of Fringe Winner, and the Ed Mirvish Award-winning People Suck (Toronto Fringe). She has performed with the likes of Colin Mochrie, Robin Duke, Martin Short and John Cleese. You can catch her currently on Degrassi: Next Class as science teacher Ms. Badger and on Odd Squad as the evil villain Jamie Jam!
She loves improv so much that she was just named Head of Improv Programs A-E at Second City Training Centre in Toronto!
She writes and acts and produces for TV and stage now, used to be a tour guide, and almost became a funeral director. That pretty much sums her up. You can follow her on Twitter here: @ashleycomeau
