Hey there, I’m JennyAn Nelson - SF actor and Bay Area native
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Let me give you some facts about myself...
My name is JennyAn Nelson (I mainly go by Jenny). I am an Asian American (VietnameseChineseGermanSwedishETC in case you were wondering) comedian, actor, and writer. I studied theatre at Cal Poly University and during my third year, had the amazing opportunity to join the Comedy Studies program at Second City in Chicago, Illinois. I initially started off my theatrical career as a writer so I was thrilled to delve into sketch writing, standup comedy, as well as further my experience in improv. At the end of our studies, I and my nine other classmates took the last week of our program and wrote an hour long sketch comedy show where I was able to debut some of my own work on Second City's ETC stage! I then returned to Cal Poly to go on to receive my BA in Theatre Arts.
My interests shifted when I was accepted into PCPA Pacific Conservatory Theatre's two year acting program. I put my writing on hold and decided to pursue my dreams of being an actor. Upon graduating the illustrious program, I was hired on as a summer company member where I have started earning points towards Equity Membership. I am now back in the Bay Area, currently located in San Francisco where I work with Nancy Hayes Casting Agency as a casting assistant! I am commercially signed with MDT agency in San Francisco.
2018 is starting off strong. I just finished understudying Office Hour with Berkeley Repertory Theatre and will remain in the Berkeley area booked by another company for the summer (details TBA). On the side I like to run and am training for my first marathon!! My running buddy is a small senior Jack Russell Terrier- my side passion is adopting oldies.
