Instructor: Vinny Valdivia

Vinny Valdivia

Vinny has been studying and performing short form and long form improvisation since 2008. He is currently on a million teams and loves playing with everyone. Besides performing, Vinny also coaches and teaches at DSI. Take one of his classes, say Hi! He likes people.

On his days off, Vinny loves to make music by playing drums and pretending he's good at guitar. From 1997 to 2003, Vinny played drums and toured with several bands including Bayside and The Prizefighter. To sum up his feelings on improv comedy: it's all about doing. There is no point in thinking about what you could have done and if you're busy thinking about what you're going to do then you're missing out on now. Instead of worrying about what's going to happen, make something happen.

Kit FitzSimons

Kit has been performing, directing and coaching comedy since 1999 and has studied the art of improv under Zach Ward, Porter Mason, Corey Brown, Ross White, Jonathan Karpinos, Scott Jennings, and Jeremy Griffin.

Kit is currently on DSI's hip-hop improv show VERSUS, three-man fastmorph strike-team Black Ops, as well as the comedic fandom menace, the Improvised Whedon Company. He is also a member of the DSI Touring Company and WildCard, and he runs the weekly D&D game in the theater basement. #DSIandD

In his spare time, he's an avid board-and-card-game player, graphic-novel enthusiast, video game dabbler, and Instagram/FiveFour/Red Bull fan. He has done motion-capture acting for Epic Games (Gears of War series, FortNite, Paragon), taught parkour, written and performed comedy character segments on local radio (WCHL) and television (TPC), and he'll happily explain and/or play Fiasco with you in a heartbeat.

Improv 101 is neither particle nor wave but has qualities of both.
