Soren Kisiel – Co-Author & Co-Director
As Co-Writer and Co-Director of Broad Comedy, Soren has been privy to way too much information on a daily basis for the last ten years with the Broads. Soren is also an internationally touring improv comedian, an award-winning playwright, and a dad. With the Broads Soren also takes on the role of Eye of Remorse Avoidance, making sure we only offend those that we intend to. Soren has a second degree black belt in taekwondo, and is ordained in the Zen Buddhist tradition, which means he could kick your ass if he wanted to but he wouldn’t want to because he’s too frickin’ peaceful.
Soren and Katie have been nominated for the MacArthur Foundation’s Genius grant for their unique work in theater, and for the White House Project’s Emerging Artists Award.
