Meet the AS IF! Production Team

 

The AS IF! team has been responsible for producing over a decade's worth of improv in Alaska's capital city, including guest visits by Jill Bernard, Michael Robinson, Shaun Landry, and Asaf Ronen - some of improv's most sought after instructors and performers. This tradition has continued at the Alaska State Improv Festival with master artists Andy Eninger, the head of the writing program at The Second City - Chicago; Amber Nash, the voice of Pam Poovey on Archer; Susan Messing, the legendary Chicago-based teacher and performer; Stacey Hallal, founder of Portland's Curious Comedy Theater; Mike Descoteaux, creator of the musical program at The Second City - Chicago; and the cast of Parallellogramophonograph, Austin's globetrotting masters of narrative-style improv.

 

The production team is actively working to provide AS IF! performers a great experience in Alaska, both on- and off-stage, and its audience with a great line-up featuring a variety of high-quality improv theater.
