BFA, USC School of Dramatic Arts
Kirstin Eggers is a faculty member at the USC School of Dramatic Arts. She was a member of the development team for the innovative live/filmed Saturday Night Live-inspired Sketch Comedy course (called “arguably the coolest course offering” by USC News) in collaboration with the School of Cinematic Arts, which debuted in 2014. She has been a working actor and writer for over 15 years, including stints as a series regular on ABC and numerous television guest star appearances. Off-camera, she has performed extensively at the Groundlings, UCB, and the Comedy Central Stage, and has accepted invitations to appear at comedy festivals nationwide, such as the storied HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen (winning Best Sketch Comedy with troupe Summer of Tears), SketchfestNYC and Chicago Sketchfest, among others. A bona fide Trojan, Kirstin holds a BFA in Acting from USC, where she won both the Jack Nicholson Award and Ava Greenwald Award for Outstanding Actor while an undergraduate, and was a member of USC’s premier comedy troupe Commedus Interruptus. She has since created curriculum and taught improv and acting for varied organizations and schools ranging from USC itself, to Universal Studios Japan, the Arizona Bar Association, Brentwood School and 24th Street Theatre, to name a few.
