Philadelphia improviser: Alan Williams

Alan Williams

ALAN WILLIAMS has been improvising since 2000, and has studied under Rob Corrdry, Brian Huskey, and Chris Gethard at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, Zach Ward at Dirty South Improv, and with Philadelphia Improv Theater (PHIT) Executive Director Greg Maughan.

Alan has performed in numerous improv groups, including Cornell University’s short-form group “The Whistling Shrimp” and short-lived NYC-based alumni group “Hot Shot City,” and was a co-founder of the UCB long-form group “Late for Class.” He also co-wrote, produced, directed, and starred in several video projects for Chicago City Limits’ First Sundays and UCB’s Filet-o’-Film festivals. In addition to the N Crowd, Alan performs regularly with PHIT House Team “Activity Book.”

When he isn’t improvising, Alan can usually be found working hard as a biopharmaceutical marketer (seriously!) or singing Boyz II Men’s hit song “I’ll Make Love to You” at Yakatori Boy.
