Brad Benson


Hitting the World stage via Pittsburgh, PA, Brad immediately developed an insatiable desire to make people laugh. In what seems like a former life, he earned a BA in Business/Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Pittsburgh then put that degree to good use in the Big Apple. Using his first legitimate tax return in 2006, he enrolled in Zach Woods' Improv 101 at the Upright Citizens Brigade and continues to perform improv, musical improv, sketch, and acting projects through UCB, Magnet, and his long-standing indie team Ghost Fight (established circa 2007!). In Fall 2013, Brad coached the Magnet Musical Circuit Team "Orphan Alley," eventually joining their ranks when they banded-together "to make an orphan out of him."

Brad is known in other circles as a digital marketing maven, social butterfly, formidable cook, avid runner, wanderlust traveler, and go-to wedding date. An eternal optimist, his boisterous laughs are heard clearly (and often)... careful, they're contagious!
