BGB TEACHER – WILL DOUGHTY
Will Doughty brings passion and vision to his work that inspires performers to balance structure and freedom in their creative process. With 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry including television credits for NBC, Showtime and Comedy Central and a dozen national commercial campaigns, his classes are high energy, positive, supportive and empowering. Will has been guest teaching at the BGB Studio for over six years and is an advocate for freedom of expression.
Will has studied and performed improv in Chicago, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Austin, and San Francisco. His LA training includes UCB, iOWest, and Second City. Will also co-produced and co-hosted Crashbar Improv weekly for 5 years, which has given birth to the annual LA Indie Improv Festival. Will challenges the improv form by bringing it to the script. His classes blend the spontaneity of improv with grounded scripted material, challenging actors to trust in their process and show up fully to their performance be it comedy or drama. He believes that an actor’s imagination is the defining factor in their craft.
“It is your personal and private canvas where you have all the permission in the world. Listen and Play from that place.”
