Megan Mack

Megan Mack is an improviser, sketch comedy writer, and television and radio producer. A graduate of The Second City Conservatory and Writing Programs at The Second City Training Center in Toronto, Mack co-wrote and performed in two sketch comedy revues, Bed, Bugs, and Beyond and The War on Error.  She has also studied with a number of Chicago and New York-based instructors and performers, including Jimmy Carrane, Armando Diaz, Ali Farahnakian, Susan Messing, T.J. Jagodowski and David Pasquesi.

Mack has performed and coached improvisation and sketch comedy throughout the Northeast. In Rochester, she performs and teaches at the Focus Theatre, the Rochester Brainery, Writers & Books, and for companies and nonprofit organizations. She is a co-founder of the sketch comedy group, Thank You Kiss, which has been praised by critics as smart and “frequently laugh-out-loud funny” with “some even funnier ‘heck yes’ social commentary” (Democrat and Chronicle). She was also a member of the sketch comedy group, Canary in a Coal Mine, which was praised for its dark, irreverent humor. Mack has also performed in The Flight Before Christmas, an original comedy for Blackfriars Theatre; and A Safe Distance from Love for the Bronze Collective.

Mack earned her B.S. in Television-Radio-Film from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and her B.A. in Italian Language, Literature, and Culture – both at Syracuse University. She has worked for NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”; NBC Olympics; SEE-TEN TV in Florence, Italy; and News 10NBC. She is currently the producer of “Connections,” the midday radio talk show at WXXI.
