Hello, my name is Brad Harbaugh. I grew up in Niles Michigan and attended Kalamazoo College for two years officially (three unofficially) and am a graduate of DePaul University. A regular on Chicago stages, WGN Television named me “one of Chicago’s best physical comedians,” and I was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson citation for Best Actor, for the role of Austin in True West.
Theaters I’ve worked with include 16th Street Theater, City Lit, Victory Gardens, the Reduced Shakespeare Company, About Face, Provision Theatre, the Hypocrites, Trap Door, and others. I’m a member of SAG, and my film/television/radio credits include Hannah Free, Just Visiting, Early Edition, and WBEZ’s Stories on Stage. My screenplay Let It Fly or Zen and the Art of Basketball made it to the quarter finals of the 2007 Page Awards, though I hope to better it with my sophomore effort.
Upon arriving in Chicago, I studied at Chicago’s famed IO with legendary improv guru Del Close and IO founder Charna Halpern and am now an actor/writer with the award-winning comedy troupe Wavelength, having performed with them in 35 states and counting. I also routinely speak on numerous topics from social media to learning communities.
When not acting, I am part of the marketing and communications team for MSDSonline, writing their EH&S blog http://www.msdsonline.com/blog/ among many other things. I recently completed my MBA at the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business with concentrations in Entrepreneurship, and Leadership and Change Management.
