New York improviser: Jan-Paul Brekke

Jan-Paul Brekke

Originally a Norwegian short form enthusiast, JP is now greatly enjoying the New York style of longform improv. He performs with the indie-team Rocksteady and the PIT-Houseteam Roxanne.

At the PIT JP has enjoyed the guidance of Geoff Grimwood, Nate Starkey, Ashley Ward and Scott Eckert. At UCB he has learned from Jonathan Clepper, Molly Lloyd and Lydia Hensler.

He is Nordic Champion in Theatresports with his Norwegian team "Theatresports Oslo" and is a regular on a weekly improvised political satire TV-show in his native country.
