Fudge's goal has always been to exist at the intersection of creative disciplines. It’s rare for live music and comedy to flourish individually in such intimate proximity. Every show’s unique atmosphere is directly influenced by how that night’s musical and comedic performances compliment or juxtapose one another. Fudge aims to produce a variable experience for the audience, offering a diverse assortment of quality entertainment that collectively elicits a wide range of emotional responses.

Most of all it’s funny. But with a soulful palate cleansing that only live music can provide. Half concert, half comedy, Fudge is a wholly unique experience unlike any other comedy show in Chicago.

Sure, we all know improv is a competition—so what? Well, in this contest, the stakes are higher than ever: every week, the losing team must complete a challenge generated by YOU, the audience. And it's your job to make them pay for their less-funny crimes.

Action! Challenges! Bragging rights! A special guest team every week! Who will prevail when it's Cats vs Dogs?

Chicago, IL

More Info

Each week, the independent teams Law Dog and Ms Mistofolees square off to settle the ultimate question: who's the funniest of these two particular improv teams on this particular night in this particular theater?

Sure, we all know improv is a competition—so what? Well, in this contest, the stakes are higher than ever: every week, the losing team must complete a challenge generated by YOU, the audience. And it's your job to make them pay for their less-funny crimes.

Action! Challenges! Bragging rights! A special guest team every week! Who will prevail when it's Cats vs Dogs?

Law Dog - John Patrick Coan, Luke Null, Zack Mast

Ms Mistofolees - Alyssa Davis, Alex Wiseman, Cristy von Rautenkranz-Mercier, Stevie Shale, Jamie K. Burns

More Info

Fudge's goal has always been to exist at the intersection of creative disciplines. It’s rare for live music and comedy to flourish individually in such intimate proximity. Every show’s unique atmosphere is directly influenced by how that night’s musical and comedic performances compliment or juxtapose one another. Fudge aims to produce a variable experience for the audience, offering a diverse assortment of quality entertainment that collectively elicits a wide range of emotional responses.

Most of all it’s funny. But with a soulful palate cleansing that only live music can provide. Half concert, half comedy, Fudge is a wholly unique experience unlike any other comedy show in Chicago.

Fudge is Damian Anaya, Tim Lyons, Vince Portacci, Dan White
