No romance paperback is safe after they get a reading from Smut: The Improvised Romantic Book Club. From the racy titles to raunchy cover art and over-the-top plot lines, these cheesy novels provide endless comic material for the Jane Barbe improv comedy troupe. Each week at Chicago's Under the Gun Theater, the show features a dramatic reading from a steamy book followed by an informative report with visual aids. After the presentation, the rest of the team will perform an improv set based on what they learned. Using the team's skills to blend the absurd with the everyday, Smut promises to be sexy, emotional and hilarious.
