Joe Dawson is a Missouri (not Missour-uh) native and a May 2012 graduate of Oberlin College in Ohio. He started improvising years ago at Columbia Entertainment Company's youth theater school in Columbia, Missouri and picked it back up in college as a founding member of Obehave, Oberlin's only short-form improv troupe. Opportunities in college included performing in the 2012 College Improv Tournament; opening for the UBC TourCo; teaching improv classes every week to eager young minds; and improv workshops with Brandon Gardner and Jon Gabrus of UCB New York, Nick Semar of Baby Wants Candy, Octavarius, and Jonathan Pitts.

He started training at DSI in June 2012 under Brandon Holmes, and has since studied under Paula Pazderka, Vinny Valdivia, and Tom Keller. He currently performs with Flashmob and Improv SLAM.
