About Scott

Scott Benjamin is an improviser, comedian, and magician from New York, and is thrilled, beyond all measure, to be a member of the new PIT House Team “Jaws”.

He has studied Improvisation at the People’s Improv Theater, and, in workshops, at a number of other theaters, and has been a member of several 10,000 Hours Teams, including “Hot Pursuit,” “RAW,” “Personal Policy,” and Semi-Pro,” as well as a number of Indie Teams, including the long running “The Hand Me Downs,” known for its “Art-Prov” form.

Scott is also, currently, a member of the Armory House Team “Butter” which plays most Friday nights at The Tank Theater in Times Square.  He has been a member of previous Armory House Teams “Vertical City No. I,” (and “Vertical City No. II”) and “Animal Interpol”.

Scott also writes and performs stand-up comedy, and magic, and has been writing, crafting and creating tricks for his character based magic/comedy act “Scott Benjamin: Magic Depressive (It’s like magic, but even sadder)" which he has performed at The PIT, and at a number of other venues around New York.

As Scott is proofreading this, he is realizing, right now, at this very moment, that this all makes him so happy that he thinks it might all be a dream.
