New York improviser: James Dwyer

James Dwyer

James Dwyer began improvising as a student of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in 2008, signing up for a class despite having never seen an improv show and he has RARELY looked back, taking more classes than he could care to count. He owes much of his development as an improviser to his teachers Will Hines, Shannon O'Neill, Becky Drysdale, Armando Diaz, Christina Gausas, Charlie Todd, Zach Woods, Silvija Ozols, Neil Casey and Dyna Moe in addition to many others.

He can be seen perform with his improv teams Get Paid and Tesla, who have been featured in the Rhode Island Improv Fest, Boston Improv Festival, Del Close Marathon, and countless bars, theatres, and sidewalks in New York City . As a member of Tesla, James has been co-producing The Lab, a monthly showcase of New York's best improv teams and local bands, since March 2010 at the Players Theatre. You can also see him on Thursdays pretending to beat people up at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre as part of UCBW Cage Match.
