WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT MOLLY
“Molly is incredible! She has a great ability to critique and make suggestions without making anyone feel inadequate or lacking ability.” — “I loved Molly’s enthusiasm for comedy. Her energy kept me going and she was always great at sandwiching compliments with criticism so I never felt discouraged from playing and being vulnerable.” — “The only negative thing about Molly’s class was that it had to eventually come to an end!”
ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Molly is currently the Education Director at PHIT. She has been doing comedy since 2011 and has completed the curriculum at Philly Improv Theater and the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York. She performs on multiple teams, including The Future, Hooch, and Study Hall. She is the director for the Philly Improv Theater sketch house team, The Decoy, and she has taken her one-woman show, “I’m Ok, Are You Ok?” to Philly Fringe and Second City in Chicago. She has studied with many instructors from around the country including Scott Adsit, Elana Fishbein, Christina Gausas, Mike Marbach, Susan Messing, and Kristen Schier.

When she’s not making things up on stage, she’s a frequenter of The Gap, and in her spare time, she watches far too many episodes of Terrace House. It’s a really good show.
