If it feels good to laugh, then laugh to feel good.
CHRISTINE ALEXANDER, owner
Christine Alexander - All she wants to do is make you laugh... a lot. She owns this laughter company called Lazy Fairy Improv with Laughing Lunches and is a teaching artist at Florida Studio Theatre for over 14 years. She teaches Comedy Summer Camp at McCurdy's Comedy Theatre
Christine is a founding member of the FST Improv's program and is now Locally World Famous.
During the day you can find Christine leading improv workshops of all kinds and in the evenings, at FST teaching improv or performing on her brand new stage. Whatever her job is that day, it includes "making people laugh and feel comfortable and courageous."
Her motto is: If it feels good to laugh, then laugh to feel good!
She is well known not only for making other people laugh, but also for her own enthusiastic laughing… or sea-lion imitation, depending on your opinion.
