FOCUS ON ACTING with Jessica Elaina Eason

Let's focus on acting in our improv. You can play game, make call backs and edit. It's time to connect, actively listen, be in your body and use your voice. Let's have fun and take your work to the next level by taking emotional leaps and pushing your vulnerability on stage. And it will still be funny. In fact, it will be hilarious. 

Students will perform in one class performance at Franklin.

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #224

All tuition payments include a $35 non-refundable registration processing fee.

Jessica Elaina Eason Jessica comes to Los Angeles by way of NY, Massachusetts (GO PATS, SOX, CELTICS, BRUINS) and Bogota, Colombia. She has been improvising all over NYC since 1999 and LA since 2011. Her first improv training was with Paul Sills at The New Actors Workshop, and Amy Poehler, Matt Walsh, Armando Diaz and Ian Roberts at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Jessica co-created, co-wrote and co-produced the popular web series 'The Real Housewives of South Boston' with Paulilu Productions.

Jessica is a proud member of the improv groups Ms. Jackson, The Ladies of Ann Taylor Loft, and Neutrino, the creators of Neutrino: The Video Projects which took them to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the HBO Comedy Festival, and won them Ensemble of the Year award at the Chicago Improv Festival. Jessica has written and performed two one person shows, 'American Standard' and 'Staunch'. She also co-wrote and performed along with her husband a successful sketch show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre NY and LA "D-Bags, A-Holes & Lovers". Time Out New York said, "Eason and Eason have great chemistry onstage...This duo is definitely one to watch." Jessica studied at the New Actors Workshop with George Morrison & Mike Nichols, and T Schreiber Studios with Terry Schreiber. Her dream roles are Mama Rose in "Gypsy" and Karen in Steven Soderbergh's "Out of Sight". (because they're going to remake that movie right? with everyone in the original except for J Lo....right? RIGHT?!) Jessica's best production so far is the birth of her amazing son.
