Description:

A science teacher turned teaching artist, poet turned parodist, and marathon runner turned motivational speaker, Drew Anderson is founder and co-host of Spit Dat (the longest-running open mic in DC) and co-creator of the critically-acclaimed stage production From Gumbo to Mumbo (nominated for the 2020 Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Production - Theatre for Young Audiences, winner of "Best Of" for 2019 Charm City Fringe Festival). Recipient of the prestigious DC Arts and Humanities Fellowship, Drew has recently merged his decade-plus of artistic acumen and educational expertise to develop Spoof School and C.R.U.N.K. Academy, two dynamic arts education integration programs which teach students of all ages how to make learning fun by "making fun" of their learning. Equal parts teaching artist and performing artist, Drew is on a mission to share his love of drama, comedy, poetry, parody, and hip hop with all who are within his reach.
