Lyssa Samuel

Lyssa Samuel is originally from the SF Bay Area and moved to LA to study theatre at UCLA’s school of Theater, Film, and Television.  She remembers having her mind blown watching her first Heyday show at IO and immediately signed up for classes for many more improv epiphanies.  She’s a proud IO West alum, currently performs at Second City with DAZL, and does improv at rehab centers with the company, Adlib.  She’s best known for “Sketchtember” a personal film challenge where she writes, films, acts in, and edits a sketch everyday for the month of September. The rest of the year, she does a sketch a week!  All those can be found on her YouTube:
