Classes taught: Comedy and Improvisation
Teaching with the Center since: 1996
Bob Gautreau is a professional entertainer since 1978. His comedy and impressions have taken him to clubs, colleges and cruises as well as HBO and An Evening at the Improv. He graduated from Emerson College in 1985 with a BS in Theater Education and has taught Stand Up Comedy and Improv Comedy year round at CCAE since 1996.
My courses are great fun, with an informative approach to comedy. I aim to provide students with a new, unique sense of freedom and empowerment.
What do you do for fun?
I work! I wrote, directed and starred in the musical comedies King of Beasts: Aesop’s Fables, Vaudeville Revisited and Legendary Love Songs. I currently perform my Stand Up act locally at Giggles in Saugus. Next year, I’m celebrating 30 years in comedy. (I started five years before I was born.)
Bob also teaches courses seasonally, including Sketch Comedy, Improv 2, Acting in the Romantic Comedy, and Women in Comedy. You can watch a clip of Bob’s standup at his website: www.bobgautreau.com
