Jack Novak

Jack started teaching improv in high school, when he started an after school improv club that is still running to this day.

Since then, he has studied improv in Chicago at The Second City, The Annoyance Theatre, and One Group Mind.
He holds a degree in theatre from Northwestern University, where he was a member and director of the long-running improv/sketch comedy group Mee-Ow.

Along with improvising, Jack is a local actor, playwright, and teaching artist. In addition to teaching adult students at WIT, he has taught drama and improv to kids ages 3 to 18 through Imagination Stage and InterAct Story Theatre, among others.
