Hey!
So I coach both Improv and Sketch and I'm pretty confident that I'm not a shitty person.

Sketch
I'm currently on the UCB Maude Team, Bellevue, which I've been on since 2012. Before that I was on the Maude Team Everything Rabbits (2011-2012). We've done festivals and had some killer fun shows. I've been coaching sketch for two years now, and I love it. I'm a firm believer in refining your sense of comedy and bringing out what YOU most find funny. I love coaching groups and people who work collaboratively. I have vast experience putting up indie sketch shows (I did my own version of Maude night for a year at Gotham City Improv). My professional credits include pilots, Nickelodeon and a bevy of funny copywriting for commercials for Smirnoff, Campbell's and Yoplait.

You can watch all my sketch videos at www.clairedowns.com

Improv
I'm from Chicago and began my improv and comedy training at the Second City and Improv Olympic (iO) when I was sixteen. My first experience with UCB was traveling with my improv team to the Del Close Marathon in 2006. I re-began my improv training at UCB in 2011, and am currently in the Advanced Study Program. In 2013, I took 5 Advanced Study Harold Classes and I'm in the Advanced Study Performance Movie class right now. I am a host of B.Y.O.T. at UCBEAST every Sunday, and I'm on several indie teams.

I also am a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts where I took four years of Directing for Theater.

LETS HAVE FUN AND LETS GET WEIRD AND WORK ON STUFF!
