BioJill Vice is a San Francisco based playwright and solo performer as well as a director and acting coach to many new and unusual solo shows (Marga Gomez’s “Pound”, Elaine Magree’s “Holding the Edge”, Rebecca Fisher’s “The Magnificence of the Disaster”, and Lisa Rothman’s “Date Night at Pet Emergency”) to name a few.
Vice began studying performance art at the San Francisco Art Institute with Tony Labat. She trained in circus and clown with Jeff Raz at the San Francisco Circus Center Class of 2009 and studied mime and mask with Leonard Pitt and James Donlon at the Flying Actors Studio Class of 2010. A graduate of A.C.T.’s Summer Training Congress, Jill’s background includes a wide array of performances in physical comedy, mime, clown, improv, and film. She once toured the UK as the lead singer and guitarist in a punk band called Chester.
Vice’s one woman show, “Tipped & Tipsy” was praised by critics and audiences for its sold out performances at the 2013 SF Fringe Festival where it won Best of Fest. “Tipped & Tipsy” went on to have an extended run at the Marsh in San Francisco and has been touring the United States and Canada ever since. Her new one woman noir, “A Fatal Step” will be touring the United States and Canada in 2017 before making it’s local debut in San Francisco in early 2018.
