JP grew up in a quaint Minneapolis suburb, primarily having learned how to do the minimum required, and avoid sunburn 2 months per year. He then moved to Chicago and graduated from Northwestern University, where he started studying and performing comedy in 2004. Since graduating, he has continued to learn the art of making stuff up at iO Theatre and through the murky corporate world of “consulting” (don’t ask him what this is because he doesn’t know either). He can be seen regularly performing with OGM Theatre’s house team Hello Donatello, along with other random fun projects in and around Chicago. JP thanks his friends and family and is ecstatic to be performing at The Annoyance Theatre!
