Kevin Vavasseur is an actor, director, writer, and dancer. And, rumor has it, is still a nice guy. As an actor he has received an NAACP Image Award nomination for his work in the theater and had a recurring role on the NBC sitcom, "A Different World." He portrayed a pirate in Steven Spielberg’s "HOOK" and toured as a dancer with the Black Ballet Jazz dance company. He’s studied Shakespeare at the London Shakespeare Studio in London, danced at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland (main festival) and has many Los Angeles performing credits including work at The Odyssey, The Hudson and The Falcon theaters.
Production credits include three years work as a First Assistant Director in music videos featuring many great artists including Dionne Warwick, Burt Bacharach, The Whispers, Soul II Soul, Jeffrey Osborne, Sinbad and MC Lyte. He has also served as the Creative/Executive Assistant to the President Worldwide Production of Columbia Pictures. During this time he worked on many films including MEN IN BLACK, THE DEVIL’S OWN, CABLE GUY and AIR FORCE ONE. He’s also been Artistic Director of the Scriptwriters’ Network Staged Reading Series where he developed new screenplays, and directed/produced staged readings of the new works. In 1999, he wrote, directed, produced and performed in a well received, satiric, sketch comedy revue called "What’s In My Head?!" at Masquer’s Cabaret in West Hollywood. Kevin has been an improv and sketch comedy performer for the last ten years and was one of the original members of the long-running improv group "Hold the Cream".
Kevin recently participated in the Lincoln Center Theater Directors’ Lab-West, and directed the winning entry for USC’s Jerome Lawrence One-Act Play Festival in May 2001. He is also committed to promoting world peace through dialogue and cultural exchange activities, often in conjunction with the SGI-USA, which is a lay Buddhist organization.
