Michelle Dobrawsky died this afternoon.
This is a picture of me, Michelle and Skinner at my first Del Close Marathon. We are about to get ready to go on stage to perform Immortal Kombat at 5AM. I think I am 16 or 17 in this picture.
I really liked her. Everyone liked her. She was so funny. She was one of my first friends at UCB. Her humor was silly and wacky and I loved it. We met in a level 3B, took a level 4 Immortal Kombat class together, performed that form together and we did UCBW together. She’s given me so much valuable advice over the years in comedy and in life. She was a wonderful person.
It is still a shock to me and I am having trouble accepting that Michelle is gone. She was an amazing human being. I am very sad.

This is really sad news. Michelle was someone who was very kind to me all the time, but particularly during my mother’s illness. I loved her campaign to get Mr. Hanky as the spokesperson for rectal cancer and admired her ability to approach her illness with both humor and grace. What a loss for the UCB/comedy community she so lovingly embraced.
