Chad Westbrook is a multi-faceted multi-hyphenate who loves multiple things (except for math!) He hates math so much. Chad grew up in the tender pine tree forest of Eugene, OR. As a child, he starred in several local television commercials where he developed his now infamous diva attitude. Chad was thrilled to be a part of UCB LA’s inaugural Character’s Welcome team where he got to perform an original character every month. He is currently on the powerhouse Maude team The Audacity, performing an original sketch show to sold out audiences every month. He also wants to mention he is a part of the legendary* all gay improv team, Rita Repulsa. You can see his work online in many videos, or listen to his velvety voice on his weekly queer culture podcast, “How is She Though?”. Also, side note, he’s 6’4” and honestly pretty worried that his knees are aging faster than the rest of his body. *legendary is a frame of mind.
