Larissa Zageris is a writer, performer, filmmaker, and educator from Midlothian, IL. She attended NYU for film and screenwriting with an emphasis in comedy writing and has taught with Chicago Dramatists, Columbia College Chicago, Children’s Home & Aid, and the Museum of Science and Industry. She performs her own short, fierce, funny little plays in showcases all over the city. She has puppeteered for Manual Cinema, made music videos for Angela Lansbury, and drawn storybooks for Lacy Katherine Campbell. It took her quite a few years to get the hang of being a strong woman, and she looks forward to working (and laughing) with more in Girl Power Sketch Camp. If you can make someone laugh, you can make someone think. Laughter is power, ladies. Let’s take control!
