Due to unforeseen circumstances, Jason Roberts, co-founder of the Better Block Project, is unable to present at this year’s event. Fortunately, we have another inspiring and truly entertaining presenter ready to step in. We are thrilled to welcome Charlie Todd, founder of Improv Everywhere, to the UP stage.
Based in New York, Improv Everywhere creates scenes in highly public locations that bring positive experiences to others. Witnesses of these unexpected “pranks” experience moments of chaos and joy that are always unique, intriguing, and entertaining.
Charlie founded Improv Everywhere in 2001, and since that time, he has produced, directed, performed, and documented over 100 “missions” involving thousands of undercover “agents.” Among them are the legendary Grand Central Freeze and the infamous No Pants Subway Ride.
Charlie is the author of the book Causing a Scene, published by Harper Collins, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the group’s most notable stunts. Improv Everywhere has been profiled by many national and international media outlets, including The New York Times, The Today Show, and ABC’s Nightline. The group’s videos have received over 250 million views online.
