Faculty Profile – Bob Gautreau

Bob Gautreau

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

  1. Bob keeps you laughing while learning and creates a safe, nurturing classroom atmosphere for students to take risks and grow as people/performers. I’d take any class he’s teaching… and wholeheartedly recommend you do the same (and check out his comedy — he’s a riot)!

  2. Bob runs a tight class and it is a LOT of fun. A great learning experience and a great life experience… not too many places offer classes like this… Take advantage!
