J.P. Manoux

J.P. Manoux grew up on the beaches of Santa Barbara, California, the oldest of seven. He was involved in children's theatre productions and took tap dance lessons before attending the Thacher School in Ojai, California. Curiously, that tiny boarding school would provide no less than 3 doctors for NBC's long running hospital drama ER (Noah Wyle and Leland Orser, the other two). As college applications approached, Manoux's drama teacher recommended the undergraduate theatre department at Northwestern University.Surrounded by Chicago's vibrant theatre scene, J.P. became passionate about improv and sketch comedy. Upon graduating and moving to Hollywood, he sharpened his own comedy chops at L.A. Theatresports, ACME Comedy Theatre, The Groundlings School, and I.O. West. Legit stage productions garnered critical accolades, culminating in 1999 with L.A. Ovation and Backstage West Garland Awards recognizing his work in the world premiere stage musical Reefer Madness.Over the next few years, J.P. appeared in dozens of sitcoms and commercials including campaigns for Got Milk? and Fruit of the Loom. He was a regular improviser and sketch player on ABC's 2001 prime-time variety experiment The Wayne Brady Show, and became a celebrity in the world of children's television thanks to his dual role as "Mr. Hackett" and "Curtis the Caveman" on the Disney Channel series Phil of the Future. During this period, he also voiced the lead role of "Kuzco" in Disney's animated series The Emperor's New School. In 2006, J.P. joined the ensemble of ER, recurring as surgical resident Dustin Crenshaw. It would prove to be a shrewd casting move, widely regarded as the single most significant factor in returning the venerable series to its original acclaim, prestige, and sex appeal.Opportunities to act and direct in Canada led Manoux to pursue immigration north of the border. The Toronto based productions of Disney's sci-fi/adventure series Aaron Stone and Teletoon's hybrid animation comedy series Mudpit saw him working both in front of and behind the camera. Still a U.S. citizen, but now also a permanent resident of Canada, Manoux routinely hops the border for film and television work, including his recurring role on Community as "The Deanelganger". He currently spends summers in Toronto, directing and acting in the CTV multi-camera sitcom Spun Out which stars Dave Foley of The Kids in the Hall and Newsradio fame.J.P. Manoux has appeared in over 100 different television series, 90 commercials, and 30 films. He has provided voice and motion capture performance for 8 video games, competed on 6 gameshows, read 2 original pieces for All Things Condsidered on National Public Radio, co-written 1 play, and anonymously authored 1 biography.
