AUSTIN TICHENOR

Co-Writer/Director

Austin Tichenor is a fifth-generation Californian born on the 54th anniversary of the San Francisco Earthquake and the 185th anniversary of Paul Revere’s Ride, which makes him older than he looks but short for his weight. Best known as co-creator of the nine “Complete (abridged)” comedies he’s performed around the world for the Reduced Shakespeare Company, he’s also played Guys in Ties on The West Wing, Gilmore Girls, The X-Files, 24, Alias, Felicity, Ally McBeal, ER, and on many other hours of episodic television; and is the co-author of Pop-Up Shakespeare, published by Walker Books in September 2017, the irreverent reference book Reduced Shakespeare: The Complete Guide for the Attention-Impaired (abridged), and the comic memoir How The Bible Changed Our Lives (Mostly For The Better) for all e-book platforms. Austin produces and hosts the weekly Reduced Shakespeare Company Podcast, which was named one of Broadway World’s Top Ten Podcasts for Theatre Fans.
