Jin Kim caught the improv bug while attending the University of North Carolina, where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies. The Canadian-born, Tar Heel-bred gentleman has branched out since moving to Chicago, performing with various companies (iO, formerly ImprovOlympic; Stir-Friday Night!; The Awesome 80s Prom), lending his voice to video games (NFL Blitz, Mortal Kombat), and appearing in the occasional commercial. Jin now serves as the LOL Training Center Director, and has worked heavily with the Chicago Comedy Company (LOL's corporate division) for the past 7 years, devising and teaching training programs and team-building workshops for companies ranging in size from mom-and-pop to Fortune 500.
When he's not at Laugh Out Loud, Jin is either hosting BATSU!, a live Japanese game show presented by Face Off Unlimited, or serving as President of the Board of Directors for A-Squared Theatre. For the past 5 years, he has led A-Squared in the development of Asian-American artists and the sharing of their stories in the Chicagoland area. Many thanks to Lillie for keeping the popcorn machine, and for providing the opportunity to do the best thing in life - making others laugh.
