Jeremy McDonald

Jeremy is a proud member of the DSI Comedy Theater and the fast-paced, sharp comedy it brings to the Triangle. His love for improv began at UNC-CH with CHiPs, the school’s premiere improv and sketch comedy group. He joined DSI in early 2008 learning various forms from Zach Ward, Jeremy Griffin, and Kit FitzSimons. He now enjoys teaching the form he loves to perform. A member of past Harold team, Gravel Patch, he currently performs with the theater’s flagship show, Mister Diplomat, and two man duo, Senior PGA, with Zach Ward.

Offstage, Jeremy enjoys spending time with his wife, Carrie, who shows tremendous support for his passion for improv. They are always on the go traveling about the US visiting friends. After both graduating from UNC they moved to Wilmington to enjoy the beach and made their way back to Durham, where they currently reside.

Just do it! Taking Improv 101 ranks really high among the best things I've ever done for myself, had no idea how helpful it was in teaching communication skills. Jeremy is great to work with and watch.

Improv 101 is neither particle nor wave but has qualities of both.
