the Wit / Craft team

Cheryl Manley
Artistic Director & Teacher

Cheryl has been performing improv since 2006, but would like to note that the entirety of her life has been improvised up to this point. She trained at ComedySportz Chicago and iO Theatre and performs in children's hospitals across New Orleans with Funny Bones Improv. Cheryl is the co-founder and director of MAKE UP: improv + drag, the first improv group starring a full cast of drag performers. She works for KID smART, a nonprofit that integrates the arts into New Orleans public schools. She is an introvert and thanks improv for allowing her to successfully exist among other humans on a daily basis.

Chris Tiberio
Studio Manager & Teacher

Chris Tiberio has been practicing, watching, and teaching improv for over 10 years. He was trained at ComedySportz Chicago and The Annoyance Theater, and has performed in a variety of shows and theaters. He is the co-founder and producer of MAKE UP: improv + drag. He loves dogs, milkshakes, and can easily compare anything in life to pro wrestling.


Carrie Moulder
Assistant Studio Manager & Teacher

Having fallen in love with improv in January of 2015, Carrie Moulder currently co-produces the all-female podcast Neon Clubhouse, performs with the New Orleans-based troupe Killjoy Associates, and watches as much comedy as she can. Originally from Texas but deeply grateful for her 20-plus years in New Orleans, she prefers sunsets over sunrises, loves ice cream, will play a board game at a moment’s notice, and doesn't care what she looks like when she dances (because she's doing it anyway). Ask her about traveling or her miniature Schnauzer Otto to experience the full breadth of her joy.
