Lindsey Reeves is an improv performer.


Lindsey started improv classes in spring of 2008 at The Merlin Works Institute for Improvisation, where Shana Merlin and Kareem Badr were her teachers. Among her classmates were Andreas Fabis, Brandon Salinas, and Jen Kaplan.

Lindsey appeared in The 44-Hour Improv Marathon as a core cast member.

A post from her about the first improv show she ever saw:

My first experience watching an improv show was at the 2008 Short Fringe. Look Cookie performed after my group and I snuck into the audience to watch (and they actually talked about cookies), and then when we were in Best of Week, I listened to Girls Girls Girls while waiting backstage to go on. And I thought, oh, we're so not going to be in Best of Fest. And we weren't.

I had taken 101 with Shana at the State in 2006 or 2007 and thought it was super-cool and fun. I hadn't imagined it as something one could make into a show, though, but a tool for being a better actor.

Then last year I took 101 and 201 and saw Girls Girls Girls at the Hideout and then Get Up at FronteraFest this year and, well, now I want to eat it for breakfast.
