Born and raised on the Kansas prairie, Austin Schauer studied improv, sketch, and beer drinking in college. After graduating, he had a bunch of life experience: lived with a 99-year-old man, did graduate school in Oregon, taught English in Thailand, moved back into his parent’s basement, and worked as a substitute teacher at his old high school. That last one was humiliating!
In 2018, Austin moved to LA and studied writing, sketch, and improv at the Pack Theater, the Upright Citizens Brigade, the Writer’s Pad, and the Second City. He’s written for sketch group Hot Teen Summer, Oscar Chowder: Private Decktective, the Grant the Ant Show, and several court-mandated statements.
