Brian Palermo is professional actor who has become a communications expert.


In 2010, he was asked to create an improv workshop with the goal of helping science communicators become more effective - specifically by loosening them up to help them better connect with audiences.

From that grew Palermo Improv Training which is a communications consultancy that uses the experiential learning of improvisational theatre to upgrade human performance across industry, the science enterprise and sketch and improv theatrical comedy.

Brian was a member of the world-renowned Groundlings Theatre in Los Angeles.  ​There he has performed, created shows, directed and taught for over 20 years.
