James Wasilewski, the founder and managing artistic director of West End Comedy, has been an improvisational comedian for over 15 years. He has performed, directed, and workshopped with professional troupes in Richmond, Virginia (Take 5, Fool’s Day, Paradox, Random Acts, CSz) and Daytona Beach/Orlando, Florida (Random Acts of Insanity, Second Base and SAK Comedy Lab). James has trained with nationally recognized SAK Comedy Lab (Orlando) and instructors at The Second City (Chicago). He has had the opportunity to direct the state award winning Appomattox Regional Governor’s School improv team – skETCh. He has started dabbling in local commercials including Allergy Partners of Virginia, Village Bank, and Carreras Jewelers. His methodical comedic approach doesn’t surprise most since his degrees from Randolph-Macon College and from the University of Central Florida are in business. James is very proud of WE Comedy and its performers.
