Jon Nguyen is an improviser out of Norwich UK

He trained with Dogface Improv, the Nursery Theatre, Hoopla, The Maydays, and a worldwide buffet of improv teachers. 

He loves the fun, inclusivity, and connectivity that Improv brings and uses this to infuse all of his improv whether on stage or online. 

Jon feels equally at home doing zany short form, to theatrical narrative long-form to musical and will try any type of improv you can think of. 

He plays with the Comediasians, an all Asian group based in the UK, Michelle, a House team with Hoopla, Unbridled the Nursery original based on the works of authors such as Jilly Cooper, and also has his own Facebook page where he does his best to highlight other improvisers across the world as well do his 10 minutes of improv (inspired by Jay Sukow) where he does a 10-minute scene with any improviser who asks.
