David Boyll | Actor, Improvisor

Following a 30-year hiatus working behind the camera in Film and Video production, David Boyll made his return to scripted theatre in 2017, “delivering a full load of crazy” in his breakout role as Bernard B. O’Hare in the World Premiere of Kurt Vonnegut’s Mother Night at Custom Made Theatre Company. In Partition at Indra’s Net Theater, David’s portrayal of Professor Alfred Billington was called “entertainingly stodgy,” and of his performance in Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple at Ross Valley Players, one critic wrote, “Boyll's Felix delights, with his nasal honking and victim-posing, bringing enjoyable life to a potentially difficult character.”

David has improvised over one hundred plays and musicals in his six years with the Un-Scripted Theater Company® ensemble. With Improv Lab, he’s performed at festivals in San Francisco, San Diego, Austin, Santa Monica, and at SF Sketchfest.

He has voiced national commercials, portrayed characters in hit video games, and interacted with millions of customers via automated voice response system.

Born in New York City, David grew up in a performing family, his parents both classical vocalists. They moved to San Francisco when David was five and he’s lived here ever since. Thank you for supporting the arts.
