Baltimore Improv Group welcomed Kate Zelensky as a teacher and improviser in September 2017. We’re wishing her well as she skips town later this year, but first! We had a conversation about her time at BIG.
Kate developed many BIG shows including Surprise Party, KZ Irregulars, Romper Room, and When Improv Meets Stand Up.
Sharing her methods, language and tools to many in our community, Kate taught BIG classes such as Evente, Monoscene, Openings and Initiations, and Intro to Game.
Before arriving in the Baltimore area, Kate spent 10 years at the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City performing with former Harold Night team Sandino, weekend team Airwolf, and taught all levels at the UCBNY training center for 5 years.

Scott Lichtor performs as a talented improv comedy actor. He also created a new show – The NORMAL Show – debuting in October 2018.

While not named either of those names, Scott talked with me about the show in an interview. Read below for the transcript of our discussion:
