Bente Engelstoft

Performer at iO West

Bente Engelstoft is an actor, writer and recent Chicago transplant. While in the windy city, Bente wrote and performed for the stages of iO Chicago, Second City and The Annoyance Theatre, where she produced Chicago Tribune acclaimed storytelling show ORAL: A storytelling hour.

At iO Chicago Bente improvised with the incredible people of Big Spoon and Heraldo. Now in LA, you can catch Bente every week with Pockets at iO West. When not performing, Bente spends her time teaching people how to pronounce her name. It’s like “Brenda” without the R.
