Jeff Mondoro came to the world of performing as an adult, so he feels a special sense of connection and inspiration from watching participants in POAL’s training step out of their comfort zones and experience the power of improvisation and performance for the first time.

Jeff is a Teaching Artist for CO/LAB Theater Group (theater programs for individuals with developmental disabilities) and directs a sketch comedy team called “Road Pizza” at the People’s Improv Theater in New York. He holds a BA in Finance with minors in Economics and Spanish from The College of New Jersey and has trained in sketch and improv at the People’s Improv Theater and Upright Citizens Brigade. When he manages to find some spare time, Jeff kicks a very long field goal, loves musical theater and is obsessed with Mega Man for the original Nintendo.
