Anthony LeBlanc is 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. revue, Soul Brother, Where Art Thou? and The Second City Main Stage revue, Winner…of Our Discontent. He wrote and performed in two Second City Chicago Main Stage revues, America: All Better and Taming of the Flu. He is also the Associate Artistic Director of the Second City Training Center in Chicago and part of Columbia College Chicago’s theater department faculty teaching in the Comedy Writing and Performance Major. He hopes that his sketch directing helps him one day realize his dream of working for NASA, programming A.I. computer systems.
