A reading of a new play.
Three years removed from tragedy, Jack, an agoraphobic online teacher has perfected his video game playing skills but severely neglected his hygiene, mental health, and dwindling number of personal relationships. When the grocery delivery guy is one of your best friends, something's got to give, and with the arrival of a home gym, everything will change. Jack truly believes it...even if no one else does.
Jeff is excited to be working with Theatre Lab again after his radio play, One Last Shot, received its world premiere during the pandemic. A former teacher, mascot, and assembly line worker, Jeff Bower is repped by Paul Weitzman, a founding partner at Culture Creative Entertainment. Jeff earned a BA in Mathematics from Binghamton and an MFA in Theatre from FAU where he received death threats for performing his graduate thesis role. After relocating to Los Angeles, he graduated from the improv programs at UCB and iO West (4 years as a mainstage cast member, Del Close Award winner) and performed at The Los Angeles Improv & Sketch Festivals, the Pilots Live Festival, the Comedy Central Stage, and the NYC Sketch Festival. Five of his contest-winning comedy sketches were filmed at YouTube studios and he was co-creator/lead actor for the sitcom pilot, Off the Grid, about an Internet Addiction support group. Jeff’s award-winning sci-fi teleplay, Fix, was recently in development at Kennedy Marshall (Star Wars, Jurassic Park). In his spare time, Jeff became an Audible Approved audiobook narrator, completing over 150 projects. He has a play published by Samuel French, won/placed over 80 times in various international screenplay competitions in the last five years, and still hopes to achieve his first-grade dream of growing up to be a Muppet. All of this is possible because of his extraordinary best friend and wife, Ivelyn.
