What You'll Get
Improvisers can bring any scenario to life, from the faintly plausible—four astronauts trying to fix a spaceship—to the wildly absurd—four grown people making spaceship noises for a crowd of dozens. Watch wild dreams unfold with this deal: for $12, you get two tickets to a Chemically Imbalanced Comedy performance scheduled Thursday–Sunday (up to a $36 value).<p>
Chemically Imbalanced Comedy’s Wrigleyville storefront playhouse barely contains the spontaneous outbursts of improv acts and occasional scripted performances. The stars of spontaneity shine in comedy showcases every Saturday and Sunday, when guest artists from iO, Second City, and the Annoyance join house troupes such as Counter-Productive Lover. Together, they build long-form skits that weave a single absurd statement into an internally consistent, but no less absurd, universe.
Saturday, May 26, finds the tone simultaneously elevated and lowered with A Delightful Evening for Fancy People, a “one-man variety show” of quick scenes, banjo music, and blue language as passed appetizers make the rounds of the audience. The theater’s summer plans include the installation of a full bar and high-tech permanent audience in June.
