New York improviser: Elly Berke

Elly Berke

A native of Boston, Elly Berke has been improvising since she was 6, when she was Cindy Crawford for Halloween. After graduating from Connecticut College with a degree in American Expressive Arts and Cultural Studies, Elly grappled with whether to be an American Culture or open an Expressive Arts store. Overwhelmed by the job possibilities afforded by her major, she decided on acting. After pawning all of her grandmother's jewelry Elly was able to study at the Lee Strasberg Institute, HB Studio, The Upright Citizen's Brigade and the PIT. She considers herself a well-rounded individual, as she can both crack a witty one-liner and cry while drinking imaginary coffee (hollaaa at my Stras peeps).

She can be found daily at the Tenement Museum, improvising her way through the life of Victoria Confino, a Turkish immigrant girl in the year 1916. For her role as Victoria she was featured on Seth Rudetsky's Sirius XM Station "On Broadway" and on Playbill.com. Currently, Elly can be seen saying two words on College Humor's "Jake and Amir." She is ecstatic to have met such a swell group of does! GO DEER BABIES.
