Evan Hoyt Thompson

Current Shows

Evan Hoyt Thompson is a New York based actor and improvisor originally from the tiny farm town of Bedias, Texas. He received his BFA in Acting from Austin College where he performed in every theatrical production except for Aristophanes' The Birds - mostly because he was afraid of wearing spandex.

Evan has been studying at UCB for years & is a proud veteran of the dearly departed Maude team Supereasy & currently performs with the wonderful house team Absolutely. He's also a member of the indie sketch comedy team Gentleman Caller and the improv team The Heathers. But please don't think he's all fun & games - he loves dramatic acting & telling truthful stories on stage & screen. Recently Evan was told he was told by a director that he was the lovechild of Joseph Gordon Levitt, Paul Rudd & Pierce Brosnan - to which he whispered "I'll take it!"

Evan now jumps at any chance he can to wear spandex.
