New York improviser: Leo Mendoza

Leo Mendoza

Leo's been lucky enough to train with a bunch of luminaries, including TJ Jagodowski, Joe Bill, Mick Napier, Susan Messing, Michael Patrick O'Brien, Jeff Griggs and Armando Diaz, and had the pleasure of improvising in Chicago, New York, and Florida. His team was once crowned the "champions" of "Improv Gladiators", which sounds as ridiculous as it seems. In the regular theater world, he's an ensemble member with two amazing theater troupes, Tympanic Theatre Company (Chicago) and Left Hip Productions (NY) He can move both of his nostrils independently, flick playing cards across a room, and make a pen look like it's twirling around his hand when it's really not. Bios are weird, aren't they?
