  Jonathan Hoover is best known for his viral Patti LuPone alter ego @inappropriatepatti, an impression that started as a party trick and quickly led him to the most legendary cabaret stages in New York City. It inspired Ryan Murphy to write him into American Horror Story: NYC performing alongside the real life Patti LuPone.
In addition to his impressions, Jonathan is an accomplished stage actor. Starting as Michael Darling when he was 8 years old, for the past three decades his passion has lead him to national and international tours, Off-Broadway, regional theatres, and more workshops than he can count. Some career highlights include the 1st national tour of Mrs. Doubtfire covering the great Rob McClure, the international tour of A Chorus Line, Adriana in the gender-bent Off-Broadway revival of Boys from Syracuse, the title roles in Bat Boy and Joseph…, Billy Crocker in Anything Goes, Anthony in Sweeney Todd, Henrik in A Little Night Music, Brad Majors in Rocky Horror Show, and many more. He wrote and performed his first solo cabaret Second-Rate Somebody to a sold out house at 54 Below and has also appeared in star-studded concerts on the stages of Lincoln Center, Playwrights Horizons, Birdland, Joe’s Pub, Greenroom 42 and the Laurie Beechman. He also is a proud graduate of PCPA (the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts).
Along side his performing Jonathan directs, choreographs and coaches actors, as well as teaching master classes across the country. He is a proud parent of a perfect angel dog, and a gremlin cat. Feel free to stalk him on instagram @inappropriatepatti or for the real scoop @jdhooves84
