Fae Niyu (woman)

"I am an actress and comedian who started my pursuit in NYC, where I studied at Michael Howard Studios and worked in various theater productions. After moving to LA, I discovered a love for comedy while taking my first improv class at UCB and have since earned a piece of paper that proves my completion of the UCB program. It’s a very nice piece of paper, though I do wish it was more green in color :) Currently, I am a member of the weird and hilarious Catsby shows and Pack Theater and can be found performing on the stages of UCB, Pack Theater, The Clubhouse, Second City, Nerdist, etc. 


"I am very excited to work with Glenn Thomas again on the third play he is adapting from Joseph Doughertyʼs 'Handwritten Theatre'. The first adaptation, 'I Defended You!', which I was a part of, was a blast!"

Fae Niyu is known for her work on I Defended You (2014), Misora, Misery (2016) and The Gathering.
