That One Audition with Alyshia Ochse

May 11, 2021

Jonathan Kite’s natural talent and comedic skills have earned him a recurring episode on this season of That One Audition. From stand-up, to improv, to sketch comedy and more, Jonathan has rightfully earned an impressive list of credits including Netflix’s “The Boss Baby: Back in Business”, Adult Swim’s “Black Dynamite”, Jamie Foxx’s “In Flow with Affion Crockett, his beloved role as the hilarious Oleg on CBS’s “2 Broke Girls”, and the newly released Netflix comedy series, “Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!” Jonathan’s work ethic is unparalleled.

With a firm belief that every opportunity is a chance to shine, Jonathan is in a constant state of preparation. Even when the opportunities that present themselves don’t work out, Jonathan demonstrates the importance of dusting yourself off and pushing forward to meet that next opportunity, that for Jonathan, often presented itself when he least expected it. Having collaborated with Jamie Foxx on multiple projects over the years, Jonathan believes in serving the story over serving one’s own self. He stresses how storytelling is a team effort, stating how “it takes a team to win championships.”

In this episode, there is no shortage of audition tales, self-tape tips, and advice for creators looking to form a daily routine that serves their artistry. Using this last year in quarantine to further develop his writing craft, Jonathan has many exciting projects in the works. His dedication to his artistry rivals that of top athletes, and he reminds listeners that those sitting on the bench need to train just as hard as those in the game.

These are the unforgettable stories that landed Jonathan Kite right here again!
