Kimberly Sparkle Stewart is an improviser, writer and director with a taste for writing goofy songs on the ukulele. She is currently on a Lighting Team with The Armory Theater, performing on Mondays at 7pm. In October, she is excited to create “Ghost Bros: An improvised Paranormal Investigation” at The Armory. When she is not improvising or producing comedy shows, Sparkle is writing plays, pilots, and screenplays. She lives alone in Queens where she plans on staying inside until she emerges again in mid-2021.
In June, she produced a quarantine themed project on Zoom with friends that she plans to expand. Last year, she watched a short film she co-wrote premiere at the Museum of the Moving Image as a part of the Women’s Weekend Film Challenge. She is probably most proud of an improvised one woman show called Lora she wrote and performed about coming to terms with sexual abuse in 2012. If you do stand up, she may look vaguely familiar from a comedy show downtown called ¡Sacapuntas! where she helped with the marketing & promoting from 2010 – early 2013. If you do improv in NYC, you’ve been together in some basement improv show, somewhere, she’s sure.
Sparkle has studied longform comedy at Uprights Citizens Brigade, Brooklyn Comedy Collective, and Magnet Theater. She has a BFA in Acting from Wayne State University in Detroit and an MFA in Directing from Actors’ Studio Drama School/New School University here in New York City. She’s well educated in playing pretend!
