Bill Applebaum worked and studied Improvisation in Chicago with Del Close and Paul Sills. He worked onstage as a writer/performer at The Second City Theater in Chicago. Bill founded the Actors Improv Studio in Los Angeles and has been teaching Improv for the last 15 years. The Actors Improv Studio has a unique approach to improv these days that focuses on how improv helps people become better actors (and voice actors) by tapping into their creativity and not by being clever. It comes directly from those he studied with. Improv classes at Compost Productions start July 7th.
