This month: Chicago Comedy Night
The city of Chicago is home to improvisational theatre, which has revolutionized American comedy since the 1950s. FITS presents its own take on some of the most famous longform improvisation comedy styles that have traveled the US and the world, including the Harold, the Living Room, La Ronde and many more. In a longform improvisation piece, performers find interesting patterns and connections between stories, scenes and characters, exploring themes from a one-word suggestion made by an audience member that can last for up 30 minutes.
By finding the rules of play together, these interesting formats have become the cornerstone of modern comedy for many of the most famous comedy writers and actors working today. With the elongated playtime that longform formats allow, there are more interesting characters, and lasting story lines combined with relatable situations that go in unexpected directions, building into an electrifying crescendo of absurdity, complexity and artistry, never holding back on madcap and laughs.
Chicago Comedy night will leave you satisfied and hopefully sore from laughing. So head over to Orange Peel after your shift, sit back, relax, and laugh yourself silly till you stop worrying about your annoying boss, crises of finance, or if you’re ever going to get that big raise!
