Moni Oyedepo is a writer turned improviser turned actor from the South (shout out AL, TX, NC!). After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with degrees in Political Science and Business Journalism she realized she didn’t quite feel like Olivia Pope at her consulting job in DC. After two years she bounced and is now on a quest to playing Olivia Pope and many other characters here in LA. Thanks to her teachers and training at iO West and UCB, Moni is slowly but surely shedding her pragmatic government drone ways and embracing the zany actor that was always inside. She is currently a performer on the UCB Mess Hall team Shimmy! and iO West sketch team The Cover Up.
