More Info

Deep Schwa, one iO’s most veteran ensembles, has been delighting audiences on Sunday nights for almost 10 years.

From The Onion’s AV Club

“Arguably one of iO’s strongest Harold teams, Deep Schwa boasts a formidable lineup of improvisers: Jeff Griggs (who penned a memoir of his time being Del Close’s errand boy), the tireless Colleen Murray, and the unflappable combo of Brian Jack and Brett Lyons account for less than half of one of the theater’s oldest troupes. As friends of improv enthusiasts everywhere already know, it’s pointless to recount genius improv scenes after the fact, but one of Deep Schwa’s silliest involves the audition process for the part of a lion in an office-themed musical. Yes, it sounds utterly stupid here in print, but at the iO’s Cabaret, it becomes something to discuss at great length afterwards.”

Crocodile Nasties are saddling up with the sweet horsies of 66 Mustang for Sundays in the Swamp! Every Sunday, swim by the Jason Chin Harold Cabaret for a show that combines the unbridled horsepower of the ‘Stangs with the wholesome nastiness of the Crocs. It’s a Sunday night romp that’ll make you laugh, cry, stomp, chomp, and maybe even learn something about the world around us. We haven’t decided yet!

Every week FUDGE is joined by a different live musical guest or stand-up performer. Half concert, half improv, the night is sure to be one of the best live comedy shows in Chicago.

More Info

Deep Schwa, one iO’s most veteran ensembles, has been delighting audiences on Sunday nights for almost 10 years.

From The Onion’s AV Club

“Arguably one of iO’s strongest Harold teams, Deep Schwa boasts a formidable lineup of improvisers: Jeff Griggs (who penned a memoir of his time being Del Close’s errand boy), the tireless Colleen Murray, and the unflappable combo of Brian Jack and Brett Lyons account for less than half of one of the theater’s oldest troupes. As friends of improv enthusiasts everywhere already know, it’s pointless to recount genius improv scenes after the fact, but one of Deep Schwa’s silliest involves the audition process for the part of a lion in an office-themed musical. Yes, it sounds utterly stupid here in print, but at the iO’s Cabaret, it becomes something to discuss at great length afterwards.”

Crocodile Nasties are saddling up with the sweet horsies of 66 Mustang for Sundays in the Swamp! Every Sunday, swim by the Jason Chin Harold Cabaret for a show that combines the unbridled horsepower of the ‘Stangs with the wholesome nastiness of the Crocs. It’s a Sunday night romp that’ll make you laugh, cry, stomp, chomp, and maybe even learn something about the world around us. We haven’t decided yet!

Every week FUDGE is joined by a different live musical guest or stand-up performer. Half concert, half improv, the night is sure to be one of the best live comedy shows in Chicago.

 

FUDGE is Damian Anaya, Tim Lyons, Vince Portacci, and Dan White

Four best buds having a fun-ass time. Every Tuesday, the boys of FUDGE converse with the audience and then create a night of hilarious improv inspired by your personal stories. FUDGE turns your anecdotes into fast and funny improvisation – committing to raw emotion and extreme silliness while allowing the two to live simultaneously.
