Julie Katz

Julie is a performer, writer, and aspiring lead singer of a non-existent band. She moved to San Francisco from New York City in 2013, and before venturing westward, she spent her time improvising in various basement theaters in New York. She was a member of Aquarius, a house musical improv team at the Magnet Theater, and Hot Diner, a house musical improv team at The P.I.T.

Also in New York, Julie co-produced a monthly comedy extravaganza with her all female sketch and improv team, Candy Slice, who had a video tweeted by the one and only Ludacris. She has conceived and performed numerous solo performances, and toured the country (and Canada!) with a sketch comedy group called Fresh Meat. She was a member of the Brooklyn Soundpainting Company, a Brooklyn based (obviously) company that used Soundpainting (obviously) as both a means and an end to performance. Soundpainting is the universal multidisciplinary live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual artists.

In San Francisco, Julie improvises with the Endgames house team, Chivalry Club, every Thursday night, and hosts a monthly improv jam for ladies with house team Vagina Jones, an all-female (obviously?) improv team working to empower women of San Francisco to get up on stage and improvise.

She has completed the advanced study improv training program at Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater and received her BFA in Drama from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.

Julie loves Hatch and improv and Passover and her family.
