Who the heck is AL Connors?

Co-founder of Ottawa’s Canadian Comedy Award winning Crush Improv, AL’s worked with thousands of improvisers across Canada. As President of Canadian Improv Games, AL helped produce training materials and develop curriculum taught in schools across Canada. He also teaches improvisation for leaders as a part of the Telfer School of Management’s EMBA in Complex Project Leadership  at uOttawa. He believes that working with a group of folks of varied backgrounds and experiences is what maximises the potential for learning, for everyone.

AL’s theatre work has been seen by tens of thousands of people in Ottawa and across Canada (and about a thousand people in China). He’s best known for his work with Ottawa’s a Company of Fools, performing Shakespeare in the park and directing clowns at the GCTC, when he was co-artistic director. AL is a multi-award winning designer, specializing in sound and video projection design, as well as show control automation, and he’s the only anglophone sound designer to ever even be nominated in the history of the Les Prix Rideau Awards design category, with 3 nominations and two wins.

AL has held the top leadership spots in some of Canada’s most beloved arts institutions, such as the Fools, Canada’s busiest theatre The Gladstone, and Canadian Improv Games, earning him a United Way Community Builder Award.
