Jacob Reed attended USC, where he double-majored in Film and Fine Arts. On campus he performed with and directed the long form troupe Second Nature, and co-coordinated Fracas!, the first purely collegiate improv festival in the country.
At the UCB Theatre, Jacob has performed in Cagematch, Let's Do This, 3-on-3 and is a proud member of the Harold team, Bangarang! Whenever possible, he performs with the teams Ladies & Gentlemen and long(ish) time UCB cagematch champs Fiasco!. Outside of UCB, Jacob runs FTWednesdays at The Improv Space and performs with Mission IMPROVable at M.i's Westside Comedy Theatre. He was also a member of the iO West team Roberto Alomar.
Jacob is also one half of the sketch comedy group Tremendosaur, whose work has been featured by UCB NY, Current TV, College Humor, Cracked, and throughout the interwebs. For half a year he and his tremendo-cohort Justin Michael hosted a TV show for Playboy where they were around naked people. Like, lots of naked people. It was weird.
