Zeke is a performer/writer from the hard streets of Rhinebeck, New York, an idyllic small town where he endured hardship every day as the son of a loving college professor and one of 3.5 black kids at his high school. He attended Williams College in Massachusetts, where he was a decathlete and captain of the varsity track team. After making fun of theater kids for a couple of years, he decided to become one and join the improv team, which is essentially the plot of “High School Musical. After graduating college in 2011, Zeke moved to LA and started taking classes at UCB in an effort to become the next Will Smith. It’s going well.Â You can catch him at UCB with his house improv team, “Cardinal Redbird,” or breaking barriers (reinforcing stereotypes) with his all-black, all-male comedy group “White Women.” Time to go sit on his throne, as the prince of LA.
