Teen Slasher

On the blood-soaked stage of Teen Slasher, Blacktop Comedy improvisers get their imaginations running faster than the blade of a guillotine as they homage to their favorite horror films, including Scream, Halloween, and embarrassing home videos of spelling bees. Of course, the scenes aren’t exact replicas of these movies, but rather unscripted narratives performed in a slasher-movie style, complete with gallows humor, ominous killers, and haunted-house ambience.

Blacktop Comedy

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Steve Carrell, and Paul Burke. That last name might not sound familiar just yet, but it’s worth remembering. Burke began his improv training in 2004, learning at Chicago’s iO and Second City—theaters that helped kickstart the careers of the aforementioned comedy luminaries. And even after returning home to his native California, Chicago’s unique brand of honest improv stayed with him. So, in 2010, Burke founded Blacktop Improv to share that distinctive, deep dish theatrical style with a wider audience.

Today, the company’s performers pack the calendar with side-splitting shows. The Shorties entertain audiences with quick-witted short-form sets, while Yadda Yadda Yadda takes the stage for improvised a cappella concerts. And, in homage to the venue’s Windy City roots, the Chicago-style True Story show uses guest monologists’ stories as the inspiration for scenes that are simultaneously edgy, affecting, and hilarious.
