Jake Mallove is an actor, writer, and improviser based in Los Angeles, California. Born and raised just outside of Seattle, Washington, Jake has been performing his entire life - acting, singing and trying (with both success and failure) to make people laugh. His two older brothers remain unamused.
After high school Jake attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts for one year, training in Practical Aesthetics at the Atlantic Theater Company. At the end of the year Jake transferred to Occidental College in Los Angeles, from which he graduated Cum Laude in 2013 with a BA in Theater Arts. Throughout his time in Los Angeles, Jake has been in numerous productions, been actively doing improvisation and sketch comedy as well as writing. Jake's play Mother Knows Best won a 2012 New Play Festival award at Occidental College. He was given the 2013 Award for Creative Achievement for his performances as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray: The Broadway Musical and as George Antrobus in Thornton Wilder's The Skin of Our Teeth. Additionally, Jake has worked for Red Wagon Entertainment, Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher's production company, part of Sony Entertainment.
Currently Jake can be seen throughout Los Angeles, performing and studying with the Groundlings School of Comedy, studying at the Actor's Comedy Studio, Michael Woolson Studio and most recently in National Geographic's webseries "The Story of God".
