Quinn Buckner



Quinn Buckner is a climber, baker, jack of all trades but an improvisor at heart. Since he began improvising in 2008, Quinn has performed and taught at various shows and festivals around the world in places such as Hawaii, New York, Vancouver, and Japan. He is a highly physical player with the ability to instantly embody the characters he’s playing –human or not. He has a penchant for mischief on stage, often searching for the most delightful way to support his fellow players. As a teacher at the Hideout Theatre in Austin, Texas, he’s found joy in exposing this fantastic artform to others and unlocking the bold and playful side of people through improv. As part of his quest to gain as many skills as possible, Quinn is currently baking his way through Mary Berry’s Baking Bible and teaching himself the trumpet.
