Lucas Kavner has studied improv at the PIT and UCB theatres. As an actor, he’s performed at the Kennedy Center, Atlantic Stage 2, the Abingdon Theatre, Ars Nova, Naked Angels, Second Stage, and Williamstown. His writing has been featured in the Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News, and McSweeney’s, among others, and his election video from fall 2008, “Vlad and Boris present Song for Sarah for Misses Palin,” was seen on the BBC, Russia Today, MSNBC, ITV, heard on NPR’s World Cafe, and featured in the New York Times and Time Magazine. You may have seen him in videos for College Humor or Black 20, or on TV in Comedy Central’s “Michael and Michael Have Issues.” He’s also been seen or heard in commercials for McDonald’s and Mercedes Benz, and he kicked some crazy ass in a Huggies commercial when he was a baby, so say his parents, who are unreliable.
Lucas was a proud member of PIT house team Party Lights, and is now excited to be a member of The Baldwins. He performs consistently at the PIT and beyond with Bradford Jordan in the ECNY and INNY-nominated improv group, Swords, and hosts Ars Nova’s monthly variety show, Showgasm. Three cheers for eating cereal in the middle of the day!
