About

I've been taking IMPROV classes at the theatre since 2012 (but like really early 2012) with Anthony Atamanuik, Abra Tabak, John Frusciante, Shannon O'Neill, and Lydia Hensler (101-ASH, respectively), along with workshops taught by Billy Merritt, Alex Berg, Will Hines, Mel Cowan, and a host of other great people. I performed in the first round of Nick Feitel's SUPERNOVA with SAVE THE LAST DANCE, and am currently on the indie team HUNS, which is a lot of fun.

I'm pretty great with character work and with identifying individual strengths, and then honing those individual strengths to make each improviser a uniquely solid contributor to a team. I also like to keep the silly and the ridiculous very much alive in a grounded base reality. I'm also big on timing—knowing when to edit, when to walk on or support in another way, hell—just when to respond. Rhythm is a big thing for me and I think I've applied it to my own improv well.

Shoot me an email at jonhess1005 [at] gmail [dot] com (jonhess1005@gmail.com, I don't know why people spell their emails out like that) and we can talk! Thanks!
