Candace Snapp

Performer at the iO Theater

Candace was born and raised in Southern Illinois, where she graduated from SIU-C after majoring in Theater, Television Production, and Health Education. She moved to Chicago to pursue comedy and her dreams because she couldn’t afford New York or Los Angeles and she’s not made of money, honey. While in Chicago, she graduated from Second City’s Improv and Conservatory Programs, iO’s Improv Training Center, and CIC.

Apart from DIG, she’s ½ of the sketch duo Snapp & Blaze, a Writer/Producer with Snappy Pants Productions, and she does some good bits as a Standup. Past improv and sketch teams include Dirt, Easy Tiger, Gin & Platonic, Buzz’s GirlfriendJerk Store, and Boooiiiit!

You can hear Candace’s voice in cartoons and commercials and you can see her in numerous commercials, web shorts, and independent films including SXSW’s Official Selection, The European Kid. Most exciting is her web series that she produced and plays 12 different characters in–she knows the episodes are too long—but is still proud of the work. She’s also the co-creator/writer of a pilot that’s scheduled to shoot in the summer of 2020.

Candace is  repped by Big Mouth Talent.
