Personal Quote:

In L.A., if you're in improv, and you're on those stages, all the big agents and managers and producers are watching those shows. They're not flying to Chicago to see the show. People are booking jobs off the stages in L.A. who aren't more talented than the guys in Chicago. But the most guys book out of L.A., and the second is New York. See more »

Trivia:

Mother Eve Johnson. Father Ken Weinberger. Brother Dan Johnson. Sister Rachel Johnson. Raised by a single mother and took her last name during high school. See more »
