20. Jason Mantzoukas

The League fan favorite, Jason Mantzoukas recently gained wider appreciation for his role in The Dictator. Mantzoukas began his work with the UCB in 1998, where he was on one of the theatre's earliest house teams. He also performed his long-running show, "Soundtrack," which involved creating an improvised performance out of audience members' ipod playlists, at the theatre.

While in New York, Mantzoukas was also part of the acclaimed comedy duo, "The Mantzoukas Brothers;" he and partner Ed Herbstman were named best improv duo by Time Out New York in 2006. In addition to his burgeoning acting career, Mantzoukas co-hosts the "How Did This Get Made" podcast with Paul Scheer.
