ICI instructor bio:

Angela is thrilled to be a Mainstage Artist with the Vancouver TheatreSports League. She began her improv training with VTSL in 2012, became a member of the Rookie League that same year, and was later invited to the Guest Artist program in 2013. Her passion for improv has also taken her to Chicago, where she trained at the Second City and iO. In addition to VTSL, Angela performs all around Vancouver as a member of the Fictionals Comedy Co. and is one half of a female comedy duo, L.A., with VTSL’s Lauren McGibbon. She would like to thank VTSL for the opportunity to perform on the Improv Centre stage, the spectacular audiences for their laughter, and cheeseburgers for being delicious.
