Improv and Acting Coach
Matt Metzger's love for acting and improv began when he was a teen living in a small farm town in Ohio. Seeing his big sister perform with her college improv troupe inspired him to start a high school improv and drama club that he ran for three years.
At 17, he auditioned and received a grant to the New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts for a summer program. Later that year, he auditioned, was accepted and given a full ride scholarship to the New York Film Academy for acting and improv.
While attending college, he performed regular improv shows around the NYC circuit and found himself interning for The Wooster Group as well as part time at UCB.
Matt has been teaching improv as well as the acting techniques Meisner, LaCoque, Stanislavski and Hagen off and on for 7 years now. Working with people in an open and creative environment for the goal of fun and art is a joy.
In the wonderful city of Atlanta, Matt continued to persue his dreams and passions performing improv all around the circuit, working in tv and film and as a regular sketch actor in Sketchworks Comedy. His previous credits include Halt & Catchfire, Manhunt: Unabomber, the Atlanta Winter Improv Olympics and more.
Currently, at several Cons or Renaissance Festival you can see his nerdtastic, thematic improv show 'Funyuns & Flagons'. You may also find him in his created web series 'The Campaign', which has released 2 Episodes and still in development going further.
