Steve Szlaga

Steve Szlaga is a proud native of Detroit. He received a BA in Television from Columbia College Chicago, and would have had a minor in Acting if he hadn't dropped Body Movement II. In 2007, he moved to LA where he studied improv, sketch, and the art of quitting stupid jobs.

Steve has been performing at UCB since 2008. Credits include Maude Night, Harold Night, Noises On!, and Quick & Funny Musicals. He wrote and starred in both The Mysterious Affair at Mr Bendernagle's Luau and his solo show, Steve Szlaga's 23 Roommates.

Steve makes up half of the two-man sketch group Medium Friends, and you can watch their videos at mediumfriends.com

When he isn't trying desperately to make you laugh, he is a writing mentor for the Young Storytellers Foundation.
