Comedy Uprising Instructor Bios

TNM's Comedy Uprising program is lucky to have some of the funniest comedians in New Orleans as our instructors! 


Amber Loftis

Hey y'all, I'm Amber Loftis!  I have been doing theatre since the age of 14 because theatre is awesome and I can't get enough.   My goal in life is to provide incredible arts education to the future leaders of my community.  Comedy Uprising is one of the ways I am making that goal a reality!  I received my BFA in Theatre Studies from the University of Texas at Austin, which means I went to college to be a theatre teacher. I have been an arts educator for 7 years in Austin, TX and now here in New Orleans. You can see me do improv with Moon Heist and Bechdel at The New Movement, and dancing with The Star-Steppin' Cosmonaughties during parade season.
