About Jason

Jason Specland has been performing improv for nearly 20 years.

Growing up in South Florida, he was a member of Comics Anonymous and ComedySportz, Ft. Lauderdale. He attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where he was the director of the No Parking Players, and is the inaugural member of the NPP Hall of Fame. Thanks to inspiration from Andy Richter (yes, really) he moved to New York City and studied at Upright Citizens Brigade with Armando Diaz, Ian Roberts, Amy Poehler, and Ali Farahnakian. At UCB, he was a member of a very short-lived Harold team called “Pole Position.” At the PIT, Jason has performed with house teams Watson, Technicolor, and 1-800-LONDON, with musical house teams East Side Orphan Riot, Punchbowl, and Slick Zombie, as well as special events like The Improvised Opera, William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, and Clanging with Dion Flynn (Late Night/The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) and Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother). He is currently one of the hosts of Thursday night’s New Team Lunacy improv jam, and stars in the improvised TV show "The Enchanted Wardrobe" on Queens Public Television.
