Kristen Acimovic

Kristen Acimovic is a writer and performer based in New York City. She has studied improv since 2008 and has been lucky to learn the craft from comedy wizards like Betsy Stover, Curtis Gwinn, Joe Wengert, Zach Woods, Shannon O'Neill, Anthony King, Rebecca Drysdale, and Michael Delaney. Kristen can be seen performing on UCB's Harold Night with her team GoodGirl and playing various venues around the city with her girl-powered sketch/improv group Candy Slice Comedy. She has an English degree from Northwestern University, makes her living as a copywriter, and holds a Hubai high red belt in Hapkido, a Korean martial art. If you are a fan of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, she would like to talk to you for at least four hours.
