Deanna Fleysher is a self-styled comedy artist, teacher and director devoted to audience inclusion. She fell in love with Bellingham while on tour and moved here. Improv has taught her everything she knows. She studied improv as a teenager, learned long form in college, and trained in New York at the PIT, UCB and the Magnet before delving into more physical and audience-involved comedic antics. She tours internationally with Butt Kapinski, a semi-improvised solo show, and leads the Naked Comedy Lab, a workshop for the development of bold and vulnerable comedy.
