“The goal isn’t to keep chaos or change from happening...The goal is to practice improvising through life, so you become flexible and courageous and can handle anything.”

Katie Goodman is an award-winning comedian, an executive life-coach and author.

Katie’s work in comedy has amassed over 3 million online views. She can be seen on Showtime, TruTV, and, more often than she would admit, in line getting a mocha latte with extra, extra whipped cream. Katie literally wrote the book on using improv comedy to improve your life. Her show “Broad Comedy” plays Off Broadway and tours nationally.

Her love for self-help and comedy lands her career somewhere in between Samantha Bee and Deepak Chopra. Her work has been celebrated by Arianna Huffington, Leslie Stahl, Time Out New York, and her Pilates teacher in Brooklyn who says she is “getting better.” Besides her own book, Katie’s writing can be seen in O, The Oprah Magazine and The Huffington Post. Katie holds a degree in Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania, and was nominated for the MacArthur Genius Grant for her work in theater. She got beat out by the astrophysicist who discovered the multiphase liquid behavior of nuclei, but better luck next time.

Through her training and speaking, Katie has taught over 10,000 people how to use the tools of improv comedy in their lives to handle absolutely anything, be more creative, courageous, and confident.

When she’s not at home in New York City, Katie can be found traveling the country for speaking events, comedy shows, “Creativity for Life” retreats, and live corporate workshops and trainings, teaching participants how to thrive at handling anything that comes their way.
