Jessica Farber, known to many as “Jfarb”, is a FCI alumni and conservatory graduate. She is currently an upper level improv teacher and coach for Finest City Improv.
What are your other hobbies? If not at the theater, you can find her practicing yoga, working on incomplete paintings, and biking around some part of San Diego.
If you weren’t doing improv, where would you be? I’d probably be drunk on the dance floor somewhere trying to cover up my depression.
Favorite improv scene? Last weekend I played Oprah in a scene with Found Family and that was so fun and completely silly and felt really supported by my teammates.
Who is your comedy idol? I so respect Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson for their chemistry together on Broad City and doing the damn thing.
10 words or less of what improv means to you? Improv is this free expression that I get to create with like minded individuals weekly. Improv is helping others find the joy of laughter and letting go.
Where will you be in 10 years? In 10 years I hope to complete more improv training, complete an art residency and live somewhere new. And make bold choices in different ways.
