Brad Benson



Debuting in Pittsburgh, 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 with his long-standing indie team Ghost Fight. Brad is known in other circles as a digital marketing maven, formidable cook, avid runner, wanderlust traveler, and go-to wedding date. An eternal optimist, his boisterous laughs are often heard reverberating through the atmosphere (careful, they're contagious).
