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 New York. 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. 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." "#BRADpacking (Personal Anecdotes to Inspire Wanderlust" -a one-man show written, performed, & experienced first-hand by Brad- debuted at Magnet Theater on May 15, 2016.

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