About

BQuigg_FancyI am a musician, comedian, improviser, and storyteller. And, after years of studying improv theory and observing the world, I’m convinced that every person is a creative genius.

My favorite thing to do is teach creative writing and use improvisational theater principles to help people treat their muse with more kindness.

Some highlights:

1998 – Graduated  from Stanford University with a degree in English Lit. Managed to find work as a writer, after a brief stint in medical school.

2003 – Played in a 7-piece, 4-part-harmony, Americana band called Skitterpup. Wrote a lot of songs.

2006 – Produced my first one-woman show, “Losing My Grip.” Performed a second run in 2007.

2010 – Produced my second one-woman show, “Almost Female: A Jockette’s Awesome Journey.”

2011 – Started performing with the Bushwick Book Club.

2012 – Started performing stand up comedy around Seattle.

2013 – Performed my third one-woman show, “Healing,” at Theater Off Jackson.

2014 – Performed lots of comedy at venues like The Jewelbox, The Can-Can, the Admiral Benbow, Laughs in Kirkland, and several private parties.

2015 – My fourth one-woman show, “Oh, Seattle!” made its debut in Belltown at The Schmee.

2016 – My fifth one-woman show, “Techlandia” makes its debut in Belltown at The Schmee.
