Tiffany Swanson (Ensemble)

When Tiffany started taking Unexpected Productions improv classes in July 2009, she knew she found her home.  Tiffany’s main stage debut was UP’s “Fools Gone Wild” variety show in April 2011, and she has since performed and toured with Unexpected Productions all over the world. 

Tiffany is the proud Director and Producer of "An Improvised Hip Hopera", which debuted in 2014, and features live beatboxing, freestyle rapping, singing and dancing - all to tell a hilariously tragic fall-from-grace story based on audience suggestions.  An Improvised Hip Hopera is still one of Seattle's favorite live musical improv shows, and continues to run periodically throughout the Northwest.

Tiffany also teaches classes and workshops at Unexpected Productions' The Improv School.  She loves bringing the idea of collaboration and taking care of each other as the foremost lesson in improvisation.  When people truly collaborate as a team, and aren't afraid to fail while putting others' first - everyone succeeds!

A member of the Pike Place Market community through and through, Tiffany spends her days fundraising and event planning at the non-profit Pike Place Market Foundation, which helps provide warm and healthy food, housing, healthcare and education to homeless and low-income seniors and residents that live and work in the Market.  

Tiffany loves to freestyle rap, perform karaoke, dance, dress up in costumes, and drink beer. She loves making up characters and playing them in bars to see if they’re believable. Tiffany studied ballet and other types of dance for 14 years, and can still (almost) do the splits.

Tiffany graduated with a Communications degree from Washington State University (Go Cougs!)
