Matthew Mages hails from rural southwest Colorado, and he received a double degree in Biology and Zoology from Colorado State University. Since moving to very urban midwest Chicago in 2004, he has been lucky enough to study with The Second City Conservatory, iO Chicago, the Annoyance Theater, and The San Francisco Mime Troupe. In addition to performing improv comedy all over Chicago and the northwest suburbs, Matthew loves writing and directing sketch comedy shows, including The Guy Show and his two man show Yikes! both of which appeared in the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival. One time Matthew accidentally ate an anchovy pizza.
