Levin O'Connor

Levin fell backward into improv in winter of 2002, when he enrolled in an improv class at iO Chicago. One class led to two and a year later he had graduated the program a better, happier person, convinced — as he is today — that improv can change the world for the better. While in Chicago, he also studied at Second City and the Annoyance Theater as well as embarked on commercial, theatrical and voiceover careers. But improv was and remains the means and ends of his artistic focus.

In 2005, he followed his pursuit of acting to Los Angeles. He immediately auditioned and was fortunate enough to be placed on a house Harold team, The Jungle, where he met his future wife Annie. Their mutual passion for the art of improv drove them both to continue to grow as performers, coaches and teachers.

Other highlights include helping to create the long-standing and award-winning Harold team, USS Rock & Roll, creating the two-person improv show, NOW?,  performing with the iO Repertory Company, and serving as Co-Director of Education for Mi’s Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica.
