Eric Hunicutt (The Reckoning) and Julie Granata-Hunicutt (Movement for Improvisers)

Our submissions have officially closed and the production is hard at work pouring over the almost 100 submissions. We’ll be reaching out to those accepted by mid-September and once confirmed, we’ll publish the full 10 day show schedule. While you wait, here are two more great instructors we have traveling in for the festival (in addition to these and these):

As an actor, his work includes tv, film, commercials, music videos, sketch comedy, contemporary and classical theatre, and hundreds of improv shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, and across the U.S. He’s a member of the acclaimed improv ensemble The Reckoning, which formed at Chicago’s famed iO Theater in 2002 and continues to tour together as well as performing in Los Angeles. Eric has performed and studied with iO Chicago, iO West, UCB, Second City, Comedy Sportz, and more. His work as a director includes award-winning plays, solo shows, web series, and short films. Eric has taught workshops and master classes at numerous comedy and improv festivals across the country (and in Canada!) he’s taught at universities and as a faculty member at many of Los Angeles’ most prestigious acting studios, and he was a teacher for over a decade at iO West until its closing in early 2018; he’s coached dozens of teams and taught hundreds of students of all levels. In addition to working with professional and aspiring actors and improvisers, Eric works with scientists, faculty and researchers at UC San Diego using improv in science communication workshops.
