Tavish Forsyth is a Baltimore-based actor, writer and educator. He graduated Stevenson University with a degree in Film, Video & Theatre and has studied performance with the Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Powerhouse Theater. Through his studies of scripted theatre, Tavish serendipitously found his love of improv.
He joined the Baltimore Improv Group in the fall of 2014, admiring their diverse sense of humor, commitment to education, and profound artistic legacy. Tavish is a previous member of the house troupe, WICK, and BIG’s rotating ensemble troupe The Caucus. He also manages the independent troupe Hot Sauce Sandwich, and regularly produces comedy shows at his alma mater.
As an educator, Tavish volunteers with AmeriCorps, tutoring students at Sparrows Point High School in a college preparatory program; coaches chess in several Baltimore schools with the Silver Knights Chess Club; and teaches improv with BIG University. He likes comedy that is gritty, patient, and honest with a hint of the absurd.
