Avish Parashar Improv Performer, Teacher and Director, Full Circle Theater
Avish Parashar is an experienced, innovative, energetic, and humorous speaker who uses his 15+ years of experience performing, directing and teaching improv comedy to deliver unique and refreshing presentations to a variety of audiences.
Weaving together humorous stories, jokes, audience interaction, and improv comedy games, Avish keeps the audience engaged while imparting a key lesson: Planning is Important, but Improvising is Essential! No matter how well you plan, things will go wrong, surprises will arise, and the Universe will throw you a curveball. Your success and sanity are directly related to how you respond these challenges. By the end of one of Avish’s presentations you will have key tools to flow with all that life throws at you.
Avish has spoken to the very creative (actors and directors), the very un-creative (accountants), the very casual (college students), and the very business-like (sales professionals). The end result is always the same – smiles, laughs, and a new way of looking at life and business.
Avish graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1995, created, managed, and directed Polywumpus Improv Comedy from 1996-2002, and currently performs, teaches, and directs improv with Full Circle Theater.
Avish is an active member of the National Speakers Association, Toastmasters, and the Network of Indian Professionals. When not speaking, Avish reads, writes, plays basketball, and has been known to make a short film or two.
