Ben Amiri

Ben got his first exposure to improv at workshops put on by Irony City.  He began taking classes at SCIT in May 2011 and hasn’t looked back since.

He was a founding member of the now-defunct but wildly influential group AKA, with whom he performed at the Del Close Marathon in NYC.  Ben was a member of The Up & Up; he currently performs as part of the house team Field Trip, as a crime solver/perpetrator in CSI: Crime Scene Improvisation, and as approximately one half of the duo Ben & Jerome.

Ben is a native of St. Louis, and is happy to be in Pittsburgh.  He is an engineer, and doesn’t get your theater references
