Anthony LeBlanc (Director)


Anthony LeBlanc is currently an Artistic Director for The Second City and the onset acting coach for the hit Nickelodeon TV show All That. Originally from Beaumont, TX, he performed with his sketch group “Boxaganga” while obtaining a Computer Science and Physics BS at Loyola University New Orleans. He directed The Second City e.t.c.’s Soul Brother, Where Art Thou?; the 105th Second City Mainstage revue The Winner...of Our Discontent; The Magic Negro and Other Blackity Blackness as Told by an African-American Man Who Also Happens to be Black at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta, Georgia; the Helen Hayes nominated Nothing to Lose (But Our Chains) at Woolly Mammoth Theatre; and The Second City’s Generation Gap at the Kennedy Center. LeBlanc also wrote and performed in two Second City Chicago Mainstage revues, America: All Better and Taming of the Flu.

He hopes that his sketch directing helps him one day realize his dream of working for NASA, programming A.I. computer systems. He thanks Mom, Dad, David, Katie, Kennedy, Matt, his friends...and of course...Stephen Hawking.
