Gilbert El-Dick

Gilbert studied improv in high school and then under Hugh Neilson, Founder of the Canadian Improv Games, before finding his home at the Improv Embassy, where he fell in love with the school and the community. He is just as happy teaching as he is being in front of an audience and has performed at the Ottawa Fringe Festival, Ottawa Comiccon and the Ottawa Improv Festival with the popular improv troupe Quest Friends Forever. He has also attended improv workshops and symposiums in both Ottawa and Toronto.

His favorite thing about teaching is seeing grown adults laugh, play and come out of their shells one night a week.

He is a proud father of two awesome little girls and will not stop talking about them.

He also uses the word “awesome” way too often.
