Steve Szlaga is a proud native of Detroit. He received a BA in Television from Columbia College Chicago, and would have gotten a minor in Acting if he hadn't dropped Body Movement II. In 2007, he moved to LA where he studied improv, sketch, and the art of unceremoniously quitting jobs he didn't like. Steve has been performing at UCB since 2008. Credits include Maude Night, Harold Night, and Quick & Funny Musicals. He is an alumni of the Groundlings Sunday Company and performed in the 2018 CBS Diversity Showcase. Steve makes up half of the two-man sketch group Medium Friends, and you can watch their videos at When he isn't trying desperately to make you laugh, he is a writing mentor for Young Storytellers.
