Kevin Pettit

“Kevin was a very professional and encouraging instructor. He provided each of his students with constructive advice that helped us to build upon our skills week by week. We all had a great time! ” – “I loved Kevin and really thought he did an excellent job leading the group. He let us relax and be real, while always keeping us focused on the goals of improv.”

Kevin discovered his love for performing in front of the camp fire doing skits and songs in Scouts. Thanks to some amazing teachers throughout high school and college, his interests were encouraged and he one day decided to take an improv class at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in NYC. Once back in the Philadelphia area, he continued taking classes at Philly Improv Theater where he met the members of his 2nd family, the independent team Iron Lung. He has been performing regularly with Iron Lung and the folicly gifted trio Beirdo in Philadelphia. He was a member of PHIT House Team Davenger. Kevin is very grateful for the opportunities he has to perform with so many talented minds!
