Kirsten Farrell is a lifelong storyteller, performer and improviser. Upon moving to Los Angeles, she quickly found success in acting in commercials and went on to become a series regular on “10 Items or Less” on TBS. She has studied improvisation, or ‘writing on your feet,’ at the Groundlings Theatre and Upright Citizens Brigade. She currently improvises full-length plays in the style of classic writers like Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and Tennessee Williams with Impro Theatre.
At The Goodman Center, Kirsten co-facilitates workshops on storytelling, presentation design, and strategic communications. She is a coach with CSH’s Speak Up! Program, where she trains people with lived experience of homelessness to tell their stories and advocate for permanent supportive housing. In her spare time, she plays the piano, is a visual artist and reads all the books she can get her hands on.
