Jonny Svarzbein is a writer/performer who was born in El Paso, TX. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in Music Education and as a member of the improv/sketch group "Comedy Corner," Jonny began studying at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC and LA where he studied under such awesome people as Matt Walsh, Ian Roberts, Sean Conroy, Billy Merritt, Julie Brister and Joe Wengert, amongst others.

He can also be seen around LA performing with the indie improv groups Styx Martin, Imaginary Friends and Thunderstruck, which co-hosts Tuesday Night Thunder, the longest running indie improv show in LA.
