Jonathan Witz Jonathan Witz

Jonathan Witz is a comedy writer from South Africa, raised in Seattle, and currently living in Los Angeles. In sixth grade, he released a rap album entitled “This Is It” (way before the Michael Jackson documentary-concert film of the same name) and sold it to his classmates. The album went on to receive a negative response, turning him towards the world of comedy. Jonathan studied at the University of Oregon, where he created and produced a comedy series for the local TV network, CTV29. He also wrote and performed sketch comedy. After going after all Eugene, Oregon had to offer including playing on the football team and trying out the three trendiest coffee shops in town, he decided to graduate early and move to LA. Although the city lacks a football team, the coffee shops are abundant and a lot trendier. He now studies sketch comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and his work has been featured on the front page of Funny or Die. He also writes the premise-based Twitter account @CallsToSaul, which has garnered over 10,000 followers in four months. Email: jonathanbwitz@gmail.com
