August Trometer was born and raised in Kokomo, Indiana. Yes, that’s a Beach Boys song, and it really is the place you want to go to get away from it all.
He grew up dreaming of living in LA. Though it took nearly his entire life to get here, he finally beat the odds and escaped the midwest by tunneling the entire way, only coming above ground to cross the Mississippi, where he disguised himself as a carp.
He has studied improv and sketch at M.i.’s Westside Comedy Theater and UCB, and he regularly writes and performs with his Westside Comedy house sketch team The Lounge Act.
Little known fact: August invented Reese’s Cups. OK, he just made that last part up, but wouldn’t that be cool?
