Ego Nwodim is an actor-writer-improviser-cupcake connoisseur from Baltimore, MD. After graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in Biology, Ego put her pricey diploma in the recycling bin and began taking classes at the UCB Theatre in 2012. Thanks to her teachers at UCB, Ego has come to find montages, tag-runs and obnoxious, but grounded characters far more enjoyable and fulfilling than photosynthesis and Punnett squares, though Punnett squares are actually pretty cool. Ego was formerly on the UCB Harold team 8 Babies. She is currently a performer on the UCB Harold team Rococo and Maude team The New Deal. She was also a performer in the 2016 JFL New Faces Characters showcase and the 2016 CBS Diversity Showcase.
