Harvey Shifrin

Started improv at Houston’s Comedy Workshop in 1982. Performed with its Sunday Funnies troupe, both onstage and in booth. After the Comedy Workshop closed had few opportunities to perform. Cut to 2018, when I taught beginning improv to our 55+ community and mounted a showcase for the community. Participated in the 2019 Chicago Musical Improv Festival at IO. Currently taking classes at Florida Studio Theater, having gone through the improv series. My passion is musical improv. I’m a recent addition to an FST house team.

Lakewood Ranch, Fla.


Harvey Shifrin will perform with the festival ensemble on the Commodore Stage from Thursday, August 10 through Saturday, August 12.
