Hi I’m Lucas Calhoun
Some examples of my acting work
Fun Stuff I Have Directed
MFA in Acting, UC-Irvine
I was very fortunate to study Knight-Thompson voice work with Phil Thompson during my time at UCI. The program only accepts 8 actors a year. My graduation showcase led me to New York where I booked my first Broadway show within a year of graduation.
BA in Theatre, UT- Austin
I went to UT to study film, I wanted to be a director but in order to get into the film program at UT you first need to establish a UT GPA. I was accepted into the theatre department when I applied to UT and after a year of establishing my GPA I got into the film program. The trouble was I missed the theatre department where it was more than just theory - we got to get our hands dirty with the work. I graduated from the theatre department with a BA in Theatre. I also got myself Minor in Business from the business school. Just Because.
The Second City Conservatory
Comedy Grad School. The conservatory was an influential period in my life. At that Time I was in Los Angeles performing regularly down the street at Improv Olympic. Coupled with classes and performances I was involved in some form of comedy 6 nights a week. Here I learned to value my comedic voice.
Improv Olympic West
I signed up at classes at Improv Olympic in LA before I even had an apartment. I was couch crashing. The concepts of positively engaging with the world around you and adding to ideas over tearing them down is a staple of improvisation that has become the touchstone of my creative and personal life.
