Laura Grey, Teacher
Laura Grey came to UCB via Chicago where she wrote and performed two original revues at The Second City, improvised at places like iO and The Annoyance Theaters, and acted in a bunch of plays. She performed and co-devised the all silent revue Reverie directed by Dexter Bullard for the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, and before that she traveled with the ferocious three-woman sketch troupe Triplette to San Francisco Sketchfest, Sketchfest NYC, and The Chicago Improv Festival.
At UCB she performs on Harold Night with (most recently) Salmon Diane and Grammer. In her spare time she procrastinates from all adult tasks by writing videos with the sketch duo Klepper and Grey. Laura has a degree in drama and creative writing from Northwestern University. She likes stuff, in general.
