James Anthony Zoccoli

Native Chicagolander: born on the South Side, raised on the North Side & lived everywhere in between; city & suburbs alike.

Played class clown in grade school before focusing on theatre at Evanston Township High School & Columbia College.

Since finding my creative outlet, it has been my privilege to work in theatres all over the city & tour the world performing.

My autobiographical solo show with stories, slides & music debuted in 2010 at the Chicago Cultural Center.

Last summer, I performed at the SoloNOVA Arts Festival in NYC & the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington DC.

This spring, I will be performing for the faculties of local high schools & doing a one-night stand at Steppenwolf Theatre!
