Steve Theiss

Steve improvises at UCB Chelsea with the Harold team Greg and co-hosts and performs weekly with Improv Nerds at UCBeast. He was previously a member of Harold teams Sherlock & Cookies, Rocks, and Creature, and wrote for the sketch video team SCRAPS.

He has appeared in commercials, PSAs, promos, and comedy videos for USA Today, NYC Anti-Piracy, Comedy Central, Above Average, UCB Comedy, and Jest.com.

Steve wrote a pilot that was chosen as a finalist for the 2012 New York Television Festival (NYTVF) FOX Comedy Script Contest. He was also a finalist for the 2010 Disney ABC TV Writing Program. He writes many TV and feature-length spec scripts, which have garnered just enough interest for him to maintain his boyish optimism. His writing has been featured on College Humor.

The 'h' in his last name is pronounced like those in Thailand or Thomas. Theiss rhymes with rice, a popular grain throughout the world.
