Andrew Aghapour

Andrew began playing with DSI in January 2013 and instantly fell in love with improv and stand up comedy. He has studied under Brandon Holmes, Paula Pazderka, Vinny Valdivia, Kit FitzSimons, and Zach Ward, and he currently performs with MISTER DIPLOMAT in addition to doing stand up and storytelling at DSI and other venues.

Andrew is a Ph.D. student and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Religious Studies at UNC, where he teaches classes that explore how religion intersects with science, pop culture, secularism, and science fiction. He is thrilled to be a part of the DSI community and loves to teach the art and science of comedy.
