Justin Jain has been a writer / performer with The Berserker Residents since 2007. Started by Brind School alumni Justin BFA ’04 (Acting) and David Johnson BFA ’03 (Acting), along with friends Bradley Wrenn and Tim Sawicki, the Philly-based Berserkers have spearheaded a comedic theatrical style that blends physical theater, puppetry, music, sketch and prop comedy to create compelling and fantastic theatrical events. 

The Berserkers were the 2011 artists-in-residence at New York City’s Ars Nova, a hub for emerging theater artists and home to the annual five-week festival of All New Talent (ANT Fest).
