Alec Volz, Louisville Improvisors

Alec Volz

Alec Volz (left), a founding member and the managing director of the improvisational theater troupe The Louisville Improvisors, is a native of Louisville. He attended Trinity High School, where Billy Bradford—now a teacher and director at YPAS—introduced him to the theater, then attended both the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky before leaving to start his own troupe. He has lived in New York City, Los Angeles, Key West, and Mexico.

An instructor and director at Walden Theatre, Alec teaches acting, improvisation, and stage combat there. He also recently directed Love Diatribe for The Necessary Theatre. Previous acting roles include Frederic in The Lights, Charlie Fox in Speed the Plow, Ian in The Vampires, Peter in And Baby Makes Seven by Paula Vogel with The Necessary Theatre, and Victor in The Pleiades Theatre’s production of Dream of a Common Language.

Alex appears with the Louisville Improvisors the third Wednesday of every month at The Rudyard Kipling. In between those shows, he has yet another part-time job: acting for commercial clients. He recently appeared as host and narrator for a 20th-anniversary retrospective of Forte Industries and as the lead character in the summer 2001 preview for Standard Publishing.
