Chelsea Clarke, teacher
Chelsea is a performer and teacher at UCB Theater. She is a native of New York, but spent a fair amount of time living in south Florida, as all New Yorkers must. You can see her performing improv every week on Saturday nights with The Curfew, and Monday nights with Improv Nerds. If you had a time machine, you could go back in time and see her perform with Bombardo, Tantrum, fwand, Bangs, Badman and Reuben Williams. Set that same machine for the future and you can see her perform with her all lady prison improv team Parolling in the Aisles.
