Roneesh Vashisht

Performer at iO Chicago

Roneesh is a proud native Texan, but he’s been calling Chicago home since 2012. He took an improv class his first night in town and decided that this was for him. Since then he’s trained at the CIC Theater, The Second City and The Annoyance. He’s also a proud alumna of teams at ComedySportz and The Playground. When he’s not performing he’s working as a software consultant and programming teacher. His writings and screencasts on programming have reached thousands of people, which he thinks is pretty rad. Even though Roneesh loves lots of nerdy things like dissecting comedy, computer science and home pickling, he proudly self identifies as a cool person. In addition to iO, he performs regularly at the CIC Theater as part of the amazing improv team The Dark Web, and is on the main ensemble of the wonderful Laugh Out Loud theater.
