Tashika CampbellEpisode 160: I had the good fortune to meet Tashika Campbell a few years ago when she was covering a class for Jay Sukow. I loved her energy, compassion, and brilliance then and I still do today. In 2023 I studied with Tashika and Steve Pilloff and it was fabulous.
Tashika began improvising in 2027 in Baltimore, Maryland, and was originally from Charlotte, North Carolina. We chatted about the first plays she wrote in elementary school that her younger sister would perform in. She continued her love of theatre but didn’t see that could be a “career”. When she was introduced to improv, she knew she’d found her home.
Tashika is a founding member of the award-winning independent troupe Cake Walk and where that term came from. Tashika has headlined festivals across the US and coordinated the first Improv festival dedicated to Black Improvisers in the DMV. She is a much sought-after. Coach, teacher, and workshop facilitator.
You can see her work in this 2021 YouTube video from Highwire Improv and the Black Improv Alliance showcasing Baltimore area Black improv and sketch comedy. https://youtu.be/M481elrUioM?si=lvKDll7edGF_NMbI I know you’ll love learning more about Tashika!
