Los Angeles improviser: Will Hines

Will Hines

I'm a performer and teacher with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in LA. I currently perform with the improv show Your Effed Up Family every Friday night. I just moved here from NYC in January 2014. Back east I perform with The Stepfathers.

I produce and direct videos and dabble in stand-up. In NYC, I was a founding member of the improv groups 1985, Monkeydick, Team Brooklyn and Primal Bias. I wrote a bunch of sketch with a group called GameFace, in addition to a show with Matt DeCoster and one or two with Rob Lathan. Long ago I ran the NYC-based monthly video competition Channel 102 (now Channel 101:NY).

I was a computer programmer for 10 years. Before that I was a nervous temp. Before that I was a journalist for various small papers in CT and Mass. Before that I went to college at UConn. Before that I went to school in Danbury, CT. Before that my family lived outside of Cleveland, Ohio. Before that I was born in Kettering, Ohio.
