After heading to Chicago in January of 2012, Omari Brown has been taking improv and acting classes at the legendary The Second City in Chicago, Il. He’s also interning and taking classes at ComedySportz-Chicago. When he has the time between improv and work, he performs stand-up at local open mics. Omari enjoys all things in comedy and feels he is very much a comedy nerd. He loves improv and sketch comedy and is working towards a television writing gig.
Before moving to Chicago, including West End Comedy, Omari was in four improv comedy troupes. That’s right…four. This is why it’s truly a blessing for him to pursue his dreams in Chicago, “the mecca of comedy.” He is also very thankful for the push and inspiration of the troupes that guided him while in Richmond, Va. He earned his Associate’s degree at College of Lake County in Administrative Office Systems and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Be sure to lookout for Omari in the upcoming fall line-up of NBC’s newest show, “Chicago Fire”……playing as an extra. Hey, it’s a start. But for more updates, follow him on twitter @OmariBChillin. ”
