About

Hey there!

I'm Billy Soco and I'm an actor and improviser who would love to coach your team! I currently perform at Magnet Theater with Musical Megawatt team Kittyhawk (forms: Rock Opera, Monoscene) and Megawatt team Big Whoop (forms: Busy Town, One World, Spokane). I also throw down with all-Latinx indie team, CHUCHO (form: Spokane), featured at festivals like Big City Improv Fest in Toronto, SteelStacks Improv Comedy Fest in PA, and DCM20 in NYC, among others. We continue to bring diversity and inclusion to comedy stages throughout NYC and around the world. I perform with Comedysportz NYC and am also a proud Story Pirate. I've portrayed a fish!

I've performed with UCBT Lloyd team Din Din and I've been a part of some incredible shows such as Gatoculo, Before/After, Be Mine, The Setup: An Improvised One-Act Play, Razzle Dazzle: A Musical Variety Show, Figures (scenes from a tableau), Mixtape: The Diversity Show, Happy Hour (improvised bar-night out with audience walk-ons), The Club, Off Top Hip Hop Collective, Kaleidoscope, and Being Jane Austen to name a few. I was also cast in the Armando Diaz Experience: Musical Edition at the 2018 New York Musical Improv Festival and in the international ensemble, Sidecar, at NYMIF 2017. I portrayed a fish god!

Generally love focusing on being present in scenes, the kind of emotional improv where responding and reacting honestly helps to build clear character and relationship dynamics to play with. Bridging the gap between formula and discovery starts with being vulnerable, making choices and not forgetting to have fun. Supporting each other will lead to the funny! For Musical Improv: samesies. What does your character want? Make it clear and go for it! Own your songs, own the stage and your team will start cooking with oil. Portray a fish fry!
