Jason Vines is a versatile and bold Austin improviser.
In 2012 he had his directing debut with After School Improv.
Jason also works in film and is a special effects artist.A post from him about the first improv show he ever saw:
I used to perform in solo and group improv for UIL competitions in high school. Things were a lot different back then. They would hand you a slip of paper with your "suggestion" on it and send you out in the hall for 5 minutes to come up with your "skit". I still have a 2nd place group improv trophy from 1992. It's now one of my most prized possessions.
The first live improv show I saw was a Maestro either in late 2005 or early 2006. I had read an article about the show in The Chronicle and thought "Hey, I used to do improv, this will be fun!" So, I took my date to the show and volunteered for a game of Twin Pillars and was immediately hooked. Andy was directing that night and mentioned that classes were starting the following Monday. I signed up for classes and haven't looked back since. I remember being particularly impressed with Roy, [Kareem Badr Kareem] and Erika May that night. I ended up running into Kareem and Roy at a White Ghost Shivers show a few days later and actually felt kinda starstruck.
