Marnina Schon & Micah O’Konis

Marnina Schon (she/they, Bronfman ’10) and Micah O’Konis (they/them, Nonfman) are a real-life couple who create sketch comedy together as Couplet. With the help of the Bronfman Alumni Venture Fund and the Jewish Writers’ Initiative, they’ve been developing “Doom Scroll,” a Torah musical comedy web series. Micah and Marnina wrote and performed the musical “More Guns!” which ran for two years at Second City, and they continue to put up monthly shows at Upright Citizens Brigade in LA. Marnina has also performed as an actor at renowned regional theaters, as well as on screen in the new hit Israeli series and Sundance Episodic Selection “Chanshi”, while Michael writes scripts, scores films, and releases music as Lookalike (feat. Marnina on violin and vocals). They’re also both Jewish educators because that’s the gig economy for ya! …. And also they love Judaism.
