Angie Yaeyama

Angie found improv back in 2013 while studying to become a life coach. She found that the concepts of life coaching – taking meaningful risks, reframing internal dialog around failure, and strengthening intuitive decision making – could all be better experienced and gained using hands-on practice through improvisation. Also, it’s way more fun. Angie ditched one-on-one coffee shop wisdom sessions to delve into the art of make-believe-with-a-room-full-of-strangers. She now regularly plays in mainstage shows at multiple Austin improv theaters and teaches at the Hideout Theatre (after stalking the Hideout as an intern, house manager, and stage tech until they figured out they couldn’t get rid of her). Outside of improv Angie balances her time as a plant-based chef and a Japanese translator.
