Anybody made an improv resumé lately?

Post by happywaffle »

I just got asked for a resumé for a potential coaching gig. I ain't got one, especially since I've never auditioned for acting parts and have almost no scripted theater experience.

Anybody have an example improv-centered resumé that I can use for inspiration? I can list out my experience, but I'm not really picturing what it should LOOK like, y'know?

You made me curious what such thing would look like, so I type "improv resume" into google and this is the first result:

I think a bio would make more sense but I get why someone would ask for a resume since we're basically primed to always ask for a person's resume.


My bio doesn't even have that much improv on it, rather my accumulated life story and skill sets:

Just write a sales pitch for yourself with all the improv stuff and other skills & experiences you feel apply to insight you could offer. Your ghost tour experience for instance if you feel that it adds depth to your improv story.
