Less than a year later he found himself at the University of Pennsylvania. In his short time here, he has been involved in a number of projects and clubs including Mask and Wig, Simply Chaos, as well as creating and hosting the UTV weekly comedic talk show, Unbuttoned. Over spring break Zach performed in London for Mask and Wig’s tour of A Comedy of Terrors, which he says was one of the highlights of his life. Zach says that the talent amongst all his comedy groups is incredible and one of his goals is find ways to showcase these creative talents off-campus. Zach is currently planning Simply Chaos’s first ever stand-up comedy show in New York City and is also working with freshman class president, Vadim Ordovsky-Tanaevsky to create a character-based news show called What the Fox?. The online series, which Zach hopes will reach a national audience, will be a weekly satire of action news, in the vein of inspirations like Da Ali G Show. He will both host and play all the correspondents as different characters. Down the road he hopes to rep the Penn name when he makes it on SNL or becomes a Daily Show correspondent. “Coming from Los Angeles, it’s crazy that a lot of the funniest and most creative people I’ve ever met have been at Penn this year. So many of these guys could have careers in the entertainment industry and I hope they’re dumb enough to keep letting me push them into it. The odds are that if we all try, at least one of us will make it. Then that person will hire the rest of us.”
