Haley COHEN

Instructor & House Manager

Haley was born and raised in Southern California. Her first taste of improv was during high school when she joined ComedySportz. She instantly fell in love with playing improv games and found it to be an easy way to get to know people authentically. Haley went off to college in Chicago, where she watched a lot of improv. Unfortunately, she had little time to pursue it while completing her BA in Deaf Studies, but when she moved to Asheville in 2016, she made an intentional effort to find an improv community.

She found Asheville Improv Collective and instantly dove into Level 1. A year later, she graduated from the student program and is now a part of four troupes — Aftermath, Blank Slate, Family Dinner and Early Bird Special. When Haley is not doing improv, she is exploring Jungian psychology through her musical artist identity, Comet, Come Again and doing tarot readings. Haley is thankful for the improv family she has grown to be a part of here and wants to encourage students to be active in connecting with others on stage and off!
