Will McLaughlin is a Meisner trained actor and began studying with the UCB in New York City in 2001 and moved to Los Angeles in 2006 to be part of the UCB’s new west coast theater. Best idea he’s ever had. Prior to becoming a professional actor and teacher he was a sous-chef, a window washer, a weekend DJ and an advertising copywriter. But the best job he’s ever had is being a teacher at the UCB Theater.
Will has a recurring role on Parks And Recreation as officer Randy Killnose. He can also be seen on the shows Happy Endings, Ben And Kate, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The League, Law And Order SVU and Third Watch. His films include Men In Black 3, Gigantic, and Terrorists where he shared his first on screen kiss with the UCB’s Ian Roberts. He mostly plays cops, but seriously, he’s versatile. He can also play security guards.

In the beginning, Matty B created improv4humans. Then Matty B said, “Let there be a compilation of the greatest biblical improv scenes ever performed on this show”, and there was a compilation of biblical scenes. And Matty B saw the compilation, and called it the Best of The Bible, and he saw that it was good. And improv4humans continued to remain the greatest podcast in the universe, forever and ever, amen.
