REBEKAH had her first taste of long-form improv at the University of Virginia where Baby Wants Candy offered a series of workshops and Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) graciously told her she was funny. What may have been a throw-away statement to him planted a seed in her mind that wouldn’t bloom until four years and hundreds of miles later after moving to NYC to start a career in marketing. By the fall of 2008 she’d grown a bit bored with that and decided to take an improv class and hasn’t stopped since, studying under UCB improv greats Lennon Parham (Accidentally On Purpose), Curtis Gwinn, Gavin Speiller, Zach Woods (The Office), Kevin Hines and Will Storie. She practices and performs regularly as a founding member of The Garys and Out of the Woods.
