JON ENGE

AWARD-WINNING WRITER/DIRECTOR

Screenwriter/TV Writer with a hefty case of Adult Onset Queer.🌈

I spent 8 years Writing/Directing/Producing over 200 episodes of web series, short films, features and more. It was like boot camp for my real calling, TV writing.

Sure, I write action/adventure/sci-fi but I need humor in my drama (or drama in my humor?) I like to get you laughing and then hit you with the signature Enge gut-punch.

On top of that, I spent 20 years performing in various roles at the Southern California Renaissance Faire. Most of which was spent in a comedy band singing dirty songs with The Poxy Boggards and playing the accordion.
