Justin's InfoJustin Peters is a writer and performer in New York who performs with Kelly Buttermore in the duo From Justin to Kelly. Together, they are two of America's foremost independent improvisers. They spend most of their time on tour, performing and teaching at theaters and festivals around the country; since 2014, they have given nearly 300 shows and workshops in 27 different states, D.C., Canada, and international waters. Their signature form is the Walter, a minimalistic monoscene that emphasizes silence, eye contact, and total commitment to the moment. Off stage, they promote a DIY ethos that encourages improvisers to find their own voices and own their own work. They are based in New York City, where they are the founders of Countdown Theater, a roaming pop-up improv collaborative, and the organizers of the Countdown Improv Festival, which is based in Tampa, Florida. With Glassworks, they are the organizers of the Basement Improv Summit. They spend a lot of time in the car, talking about the radio.
