Phil A. Jackson
Phil A. Jackson is an improviser, writer, and musician based in New York City. He started studying at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in August of 2009. He was placed on Harold Night at UCB in May of 2011 with Grandma's Ashes. A few weeks after his placement there were auditions and reshuffling, and Phil was placed on Dance Break. Another round of reshuffling in 2012 led him to his current team, The Regulars. Phil is a member of Improv Nerds. He has also sat in with ASSSSCAT 3000 several times, one of which where he played drums on a chair. In the NYC indie scene, Phil performs with Jump On Three, Dreamboat, Kelly Cash, Pinot Grigio, SWAG, and twelve thousand other teams. As if this wasn't enough, Phil is also a respected and dedicated coach to an untold number of indie teams such as Free Kittens and Rain. Before finding UCB, Phil wrote, directed, and starred in the play The Dinner Plan, which enjoyed a sold out run at the 13th Street Repertory Theatre.
