Noah Gregoropoulos


Noah Gregoropoulos has been performing, directing and teaching improvisation for over 20 years. He began teaching at iO in the late 1980’s, and in 1999 he took over the Performance Level workshops when his predecessor, Del Close, passed away halfway through a class session. Gregoropoulos has also taught improvisation at iO West, Second City and Columbia College, as well as free-lance workshops throughout the U.S. and Europe. As an improvisational performer, he has played on several house teams at iO including his current team, “Carl and the Passions”. He was a founding member of the critically acclaimed troupes “Jazz Freddy” and “Atlantis”, toured much of the English speaking world with “Modern Problems in Science” and was part of the original cast of iO’s “Armando Diaz Experience”, in which he still performs in every Monday. As a director, Gregoropoulos mounted “Lois Kaz” the first-ever long-form improvisation show at Second City, “Close Quarters” which has become a standard form for advanced improv classes and troupes, and the first “Atlantis” show, along with several other lesser efforts that don’t warrant mentioning. He directed the revue “If the White House is a Rockin’, Don’t Come a-Knockin’” at Second City’s e.t.c., as well as two of The Second City National Touring Companies. Gregoropoulos has appeared in films, plays and on television and radio (big whoop), and was a staff writer on the ABC sitcom, “Dharma and Greg.”
