New York improviser: Evan Forde Barden

Evan Forde Barden

Hey, I'm Evan.

I'm from Winchester, MA where I use to play sports. I also used to play music. Then I learned long form improv at Fairfield University, spent a couple years performing improv and sketch at ImprovBoston, and moved to NYC in 2010.

I've performed on the Magnet Theater house teams Party Lions and Flower Girl, and I take classes at UCB. I started my indie team SCORESBY with some friends from school.

I've been lucky to have been taught/coached by Louis Kornfeld, Silvija Ozols, Peter McNerney, Achilles Stamatelaky, Alex Marino, Rick Andrews, Armando Diaz, Joe Bill, Jeremiah Jordan, Nick Kanellis, Mark Grenier, Adam Wade, John Murray, Ari Voukydis, Jordan Klepper, Michael Delaney, Elana Fishbein, and Laura Grey.

I also run this website about dating: One Hundred Dates

I live in Astoria, near the beer garden, so let's get a pitcher some time.
