Instructor: Suki Lanh
Suki Lanh is a graduate of Second City Chicago and the Peoples Improv Theater. She has taught courses in screenwriting and sketch comedy at University of Miami, Villain Theater, and Jeff Quintana Performing Arts. Suki got her BA in Theatre Arts at the 2nd most expensive school in Florida and her MFA in Film at the 1st most expensive school in Florida. She currently lives in an endless black hole of student loan debt that has been tastefully decorated to look like a bohemian chic French apothecary. Don’t feel sorry for her, she did this to herself. Before moving to Miami, Suki developed scripts for film, television, and theatre in London and NYC which means she would give notes on how to make these scripts better and then the writers would receive these notes and tell her why she was wrong (but end up taking her notes anyway). When Suki’s not writing funny stuff or teaching funny things, she’s busy making funny voices at her dog Lillian Coppola Van Chicken Wing.
