Leo Mendoza is leading a free introductory workshop as a taster for his Improv Toolkit course that will be running over May and June.
Leo Mendoza is a Chicago native, and has been studying and performing improv since 2004. He was lucky enough to study and perform at iO (Chicago), Annoyance (Chicago), UCB (NYC), Magnet (NYC), and The PIT (NYC). He’s learned from some of the leading names in improv such as TJ Jagodowski, Michael Patrick O’Brien, Mick Napier, Armando Diaz, Will Hines and Jules Munns. Currently, you can see him all around London regularly performing with the fantastic people in C3467X or coaching the utterly hilarious “Anne & Frank”. Leo also has a number of fringe theatre credits, is an emeritus company member of Tympanic Theatre Company (Chicago) and has directed a number of festival winning one-act plays. And, if you pay very close attention in season 4, episode 6 of 30 Rock, you can catch a glimpse of Leo in a suit, juggling devil sticks in the foreground. He’s still waiting for his residuals.
