Improv Fest Workshop: TV Improv with Jonathan Mangum

June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Date: Saturday, June 15th, 2024

In Collaboration With: Big Canvas

Join Benson Theatre for a special workshop with TV’s own Jonathan Mangum!

TV improv, like Whose Line Is It Anyway, is much faster-paced than many types of improv. Jonathan will help students get a perspective on how to adapt their performance for this style of comedy.

Jonathan was born in Charleston, S.C. and grew up in Mobile, Alabama. At the age of twenty, he moved to Orlando, Florida where he earned a B.S. in psychology and began performing improv comedy with Wayne Brady at SAK Theatre Comedy Lab. In 1995 he moved with a group of improvisers to Los Angeles and together they began performing as the Houseful of Honkeys. Since then, Jonathan has toured the world performing improv with Wayne Brady and Drew Carey. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife Leah Stanko Mangum and their two sons, Chase and Austin.

Currently, Jonathan can be seen as the co-host of the Let’s Make a Deal on CBS and often on Whose Line is it, Anyway?

This workshop has limited space so register soon!

Doors Open: Noon

Workshop Starts: 1:00 PM

Class Price: $200
