David Yontz

Musical Director

In addition to music-directing shows at iO since 2013, David Yontz has been performing in Chicago since 2010, both as a solo musical comedy act, and as music director for sketch and improv shows at venues such as The Second City, Comedy Sportz, and The Annoyance Theatre. His accolades include winning the Deli Magazine Chicago Artist of the Month poll in October 2013, performing for Laughingstock: The Chicago Comedy Music Festival in 2013 and 2014, understudying for the Second City’s ETC stage in 2017, and receiving an artist grant from The City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in both 2015 and 2019. He wants everybody reading this to know that he feels incredibly fortunate to be turning his dreams into his profession, and needs $2.25 to take the bus home after the show tonight.
