New York improviser: Andrew Yurman-Glaser

Andrew Yurman-Glaser

Andrew is a comedian and writer living in Brooklyn. He has been studying and performing improv in NYC since 2006. He has studied with Anthony King, Christina Gausas, Armando Diaz, Michael Delaney, Alex Marino, James Eason, Billy Merritt, Charlie Todd, Zach Woods, and Shannon O’Neill to name a few. Andrew improvises with indie teams The Stamp and Coin Club, Raphael, and Scoundrel.

He grew up in Rochester, New York and will blindly defend all things Rochester. As a result, his favorite things happen to be Genny Lite, garbage plates, Country Sweet wings, Zweigles white hots, and the gravestone of Frederick Douglass.

He went to Binghamton University where he performed with the improv and sketch group the Pappy Parker Players. He also created his own major through an Individualized Major Program called Humor. No fooling.
