Carolyn Cole, Instructor

CAROLYN COLE is an adult educator turned improviser who trained at major theater schools, including The Upright Citizen’s Brigade (UCB/NYC), Second City, and iO in Chicago. She has studied under Susan Messing, Rich Talarico, David Razowsky, and Jimmy Carrane, among others. Improv continues to be a joy for her. 

"I think a lot about the older improv student since I have many students who are 40+, 50+, 60+, etc.  I am an older student myself. My main message is: It’s never too late to put on your improv shoes and begin the journey. You have so much to bring to the stage, so much to gain yourself. And I do believe you will find that improv makes you ageless."

Carolyn founded and performs with the ECHOES, an improv troupe that uses trippy, dream logic to deliver a unique theatrical show.
