Briana Rayner



Briana Rayner found her calling in theatre in grade two when cast as the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe; she hopes to reprise the role at a later date. In the meantime, she’s an improviser, actor, voice artist, and classic typewriter enthusiast. She’s been improvising for 12 years, and performs with Virginia Jack Comedy, the Bobbers Queer Improv Company, and the Instant Theatre Company. She is a dedicated clown-doctor with Vancouver non- profit Jest for Joy, where she tells purposefully bad jokes, sing songs, and trip over her feet. Also a member of the Royal Awesome Society, she enjoys producing royally awesome and innovative new theatre shows in Vancouver. She makes possibly the best cookies ever, and no, she will not prove it.
