  • Under the Gun Theater
    Under the Gun Theater may be a newcomer on the Chicago comedy scene, but its founders, Angie McMahon and Kevin Mullaney, are anything but. McMahon was the founding director of Chemically Imbalanced Comedy, Mullaney previously served as artistic director of New York's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, and both have tons of performing experience and withered apples from former students to their name. Their new venture isn't just about improv—both their shows and their classes are apt to add elements of storytelling, music, and physical theater, though it's a sure bet that any given performance will have laughs in store.

  • ComedySportz of Chicago
    At ComedySportz of Chicago, audience suggestions keep an all-ages, family-friendly and fast-paced vortex of scenes, games, and songs spinning in competitive shows that pit two improv teams against each other. Inside the intimate, 149-seat theater, spontaneity rules as a referee moderates the all-ages-appropriate hilarity pitched between the Chicago Bosses and The Evanston Express. At the end of each comedic duel, the points and audience votes are tallied to determine the winning team, sentencing the losers to feed the doves that live inside the winners’ top hats. ComedySportz’s seasoned instructors also host regular workshops to teach aspiring yuksters the art of improvised hilarity and the essential virtues of spontaneity, risk taking, and engagement with the moment. Through scene work, ComedySportz games, and short- and long-form improv, students learn to keep audiences roaring in order to jump-start a career or become a more affable bank robber.
