Jon Bershad

Jon is a writer for the UCB Maude team Beige and a performer with the UCB Lloyd team Apollo. He's been studying improv and sketch at the theatre since 2007 (not including a two year break while he finished up college).

Outside of that, he's worked on a bunch of web series, directed a few sketch shows, and written for some TV shows. He currently co-hosts a popular, monthly variety show, The Jonoscene Jonvention, in which he and three other gentlemen also named Jon bring in some acts, perform some improv, and then throw a wild party.

Once upon a time, Jon also co-wrote the musical "Zipperface!!?!: The Hobo Musical" which had a sold out run in the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival, an almost sold out run in the 2009 Fringe Encore Series, and would be totally perfect for your Off-Broadway, regional, or college theater group. Seriously. Your season ticket holders would love it.
