Andy Sarouhan

Coach since 2012

Andy Sarouhan is a Bay Area native. His improvisation training began in 1992, when he joined his high school improvisation team. That event started a chain reaction that eventually resulted in a BA in Theatre from UC San Diego and an MFA in Creative Writing from UC Riverside.

Since 2003, Andy has improvised professionally with Flash Family and the Un-Scripted Theater Company, where he had the opportunity to train and perform in both shortform and narrative longform shows.

He has been a busy improvisation coach since 2001, leading courses for ImprovWorks, UC Riverside, American Conservatory Theater, Cal Shakes, Un-Scripted Theater Company, and BATS Improv. Some of his most rewarding work has been with young people in San Mateo, where he is a coach of two high school improvisation teams, including the team with which he first performed as a teenager.
