Fred Brown (instructor)
Fred has always loved performing, but it wasn’t until he got the gumption to sign up for an improv class at PHIT that he realized the wonders of playing pretend with grown-ups. And he liked improv so much that, having worked as a teacher for eight years, Fred left his job to pursue a graduate degree in theater at the Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training. He performs with the PHIT house team The Future most Saturdays, with the Figment Theater resident ensemble Playback every other Friday, and occasionally with fellow improviser Andrew Coppola in the duo Fred and Andrew are Tough Guys. He has been involved in various short-run shows around town, scripted and otherwise, both as an actor and as a musician.
