Jason Kravits BIO

Jason Kravits is a multi-talented actor, writer, and improviser who has made a name for himself on both stage and screen. Born in Washington, D.C., Kravits grew up in a family of lawyers and politicians, but he was drawn to the arts from a young age. He attended Northwestern University, where he studied theater and improv, and he went on to hone his skills at Chicago's famed Second City.

Kravits made his Broadway debut in 1989 in the musical "Grand Hotel," and he has since appeared in a number of other Broadway productions, including "The Drowsy Chaperone," "Relatively Speaking," and "The Performers." He is known for his versatility as an actor, and he has tackled a wide range of roles, from comedic to dramatic.

In addition to his stage work, Kravits has also made a name for himself on television. He has appeared in a number of popular shows, including "The Practice," "Gilmore Girls," "Law & Order," and "The Blacklist." He is perhaps best known for his recurring role on the hit HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," where he played Larry David's nemesis, Larry's lawyer, and a number of other characters over the course of the show's run.

Kravits is also a talented writer and improviser, and he has created a number of successful one-man shows, including "Off the Top," which he performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013. The show is a hilarious and engaging mix of improv and storytelling, and it has received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.

Kravits is a true triple threat, and his talents extend beyond acting, writing, and improv. He is also a skilled musician, and he has played piano and sung in a number of productions, including "The Drowsy Chaperone" and "Relatively Speaking." His musical talents have also been on display in his one-man shows, where he often incorporates music and song into his performances.

Despite his success on stage and screen, Kravits remains humble and grounded. He is known for his generosity and kindness, both on and off set, and he has mentored countless young actors and improvisers over the years. He is a true ambassador for the arts, and he is passionate about promoting the importance of theater and improv in our culture.

Kravits is a true original, and his talent and dedication to his craft have made him a beloved figure in the entertainment industry. He continues to inspire and entertain audiences around the world, and we can't wait to see what he'll do next.
