Biography

Elisha Yaffe took up comedy in Boston, where he attended university at Emerson College. It was there that he became a regular at The Comedy Studio in Harvard Square and founded Zebro Sketch Comedy. Zebro “packed the house” for their year long run at ImprovBoston and, during that time, their videos were featured on CNN, BBC, MSNBC, The Today Show, MTV, Youtube, Myspace, The Huffington Post, Salon.com. Elisha was called "One of Boston’s Rising Stars" by the Boston Globe and "Endearingly Silly" by the Boston Herald. He also co-hosted the alternative comedy revue The Secret Circus, performing at colleges across the country with good friends Dave Burdick and Ballard C. Boyd. They were called "a cult sensation" by The Denver Post who said that The Secret Circus was "Redefining what it means to see live comedy and breathing energy into an art form that sorely needed it."

Elisha now resides in sunny Los Angeles, where he works at Warner Brothers writing and producing comedy series. He is the co-creator and star of "Downers Grove" an ensemble comedy to premiere on TheWB.com this August. He performs at shows across Los Angeles at UCB, The Comedy Store, and Ultimate Improv Theatre. He is currently a regular at the Walsh Brothers' Great and Secret Show at The Improv on Melrose.

On July 2, 2008, Elisha will premiere "Your Girlfriend" at the Art/Works Theatre in Hollywood --- a new bi-weekly live show produced by John Ennis (HBO's Mr. Show). Elisha will host the show along with Pat Boccuzzi (Comedy Central Open Mike Fight finalist).
