Fonzie Aliga was born in Quezon City, Philippines, and grew up in Wheaton, IL., a western suburb of Chicago. He first fell in love with acting in 8th grade, playing the Cowardly Lion in his school's production of The Wizard of Oz. After graduating from The University of Iowa with a BA in Communications for Film Production and also receiving a Certificate of International Business, he decided to continue pursuing his passion. From there, he took further acting classes in Chicago and performed onstage. In 2005, Fonz headed to Hollywood and continues to work on his craft, previously at The Groundlings School of Improv Comedy and currently at The Berg Studios.
He would like to thank his family and friends for their unconditional love and support.
