The Improv Invades Chicago 'Burb

ImprovLogo.jpgThe venerable comedy club and dinner theater known as the Improv opened doors in Schaumburg's Woodfield Mall the first week of June this year. The club seats 450 and the Skybar seats 50 more, which may qualify it as the largest stand-up comedy club in the nation.

There was skepticism, and some rumblings and giggles among Chicago's stand-ups when the news first broke, but tonight, Wednesday, July 26, the Improv will see several prominent Chicago stand-up comedians trying for an emcee or feature slot on their stage in the coming months.

If a chance to enjoy the seemingly non-compatible activities of stuffing your yaw with Chicken Tequila Pasta while laughing isn't enticing enough to convince you to visit the new Chicago Improv, how about this? Upcoming special perfomer Bob Saget. Yeah. Bob Friggin' Saget. Bob "unexpectedly filthiest possible version of the Aristocrats joke" Saget. Mary-Kate Olsen must be spinning in her grave. (Oh, wait, she's not dead. Never mind.)

Thanks to Dave Odd for catching the Bastion up to speed on this one.
