TEEN FOCUS: Brandon Ford

"Hungry as a lion gets he never eats grass because he is always dedicated to getting the carnivorous meal. That is how you have to be when being an actor in improv, especially a teen. You cannot worry about what your friends say because then it'll be a barrier to stop you from getting where you need to be. Everyone tells me that I am at a good age being 19 years old and having improv under my belt straight out of high school is an advantage and I'm slowly understanding that. A wise man once told me you need to be the best at what you do, but you'll never be good enough so you have to keep pushing and pushing to show everyone your dedication."

Brandon Ford was a student at Queens Preperatory Academy, where he took classes by EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH teachers/performers via Comedy Hall of Fame Laugh It Out Program. After graduating, Brandon became an intern helping shows and classes. Now, Brandon is the youngest member of the troupe, performing - and getting paid - outreach shows at K-12 schools, New York showcases at the Broadway Comedy Club and assisting classes.
