Valerie Vasilas is a performer, writer, director, producer, teacher, a mover and a shaker, and the wearer of many other hats.

She got her start in comedy because she thought that she invented improv (it was her college thesis and she went around calling it “unscripted theatre”), and when she found out that, no, she was not that revolutionary or special, she decided to dedicate herself to learning it.

She got her start at the Neighborhood Comedy Theater in Phoenix, then moved to Los Angeles where she trained at iO West and the Pack Theater. Her background is in physical theatre, where she’s trained in Commedia dell’Arte, clown, mask and puppetry.

You can catch her on stage with Laugh Track. She also coaches Snack Table, the house sketch team at RISE.

She has had her digital content featured on WhoHaHa, Funny or Die, as well as at live events in New York City and Los Angeles.

She loves kale, potatoes, and burritos.
