More Info

Corey DOES TOO! Have Friends is an improvised show using a loose armando format. Each week Corey invites eight different improvisers with different levels on experience to create scenes inspired by a suggestion from the audience. Many of the ensemble members formed will be playing with each other for the first time. We build a show while building chemistry amongst each other. The show has been featured in 13 different venues around the city including Second City, Annoyance, CIC Theater, and The Playground Theater and has featured comedians including Chris Redd (Posters, 3peat), Shantira Jackson (3peat, 50 Central), Andy Herren (Big Brother), and Luke Null (SaturdayNight Live). The show definitely stars Corey...maybe other people...we'll see.

More Info

The cast of Whirled News Tonight downs some Red Bull and stays up later, taking a wide-angle look at current events from across the media landscape, including electronic news, blogs, and that one guy who started an online petition to the White House to change the national anthem to “Ignition (Remix).” Tweet your article from your Apple Watch and watch the world’s problems get solved…after hours.

Using the Twitter handle @WNTLate, audience members will be able to use Twitter to share links to news items and interesting articles that will be the basis for the cast’s improvisation.
 

Free for iO students and performers.
