Ed Greenberg

Laughter for a Change
Executive Director
USA
Ed Greenberg (USA) began improvising as an actor with San Francisco’s legendary improvisational review “The Committee.” In addition to working extensively with Viola Spolin and Paul Sills, with his mentor Del Close, Ed worked on the early experiments in long form improv (he was on the stage the day “Harold” was born). Ed succeeded Del as director at “The Second City” Chicago. He is currently Executive Director of the non-profit Laughter for a Change (L4C) www.laughterforachange.org. Through L4C, Ed has worked with diverse communities such as post-genocide Rwandan youth, former gang members, and war vets dealing with post traumatic stress, to bring to these individuals and groups, through improv, the healing power of laughter and play. In addition to his work leading improvisation workshops around the world, Ed also leads L4C’s “Laugh and Think Tank” which explores, through improvisational play, current topics in cutting edge scientific research.
