Improv Tue Sep 15 2009
Chicago has long ago made its mark in the world of improvisational comedy, helping such stars such as John Belushi, Tina Fey, and Steve Carell achieve superstardom.
"What Are They Saying" is another improv troupe whose goal is to produce Chicago's next comedy superstar. The troupe, founded in 2001 and under the umbrella of educational theatre company For Children, By Children (FCBC), was founded and created by Rod Lewis, who also serves as its artistic director and producer.
What makes this improv troupe stand apart is that these family-friendly shows are not only performed by youth; they are also responsible for technical aspects including stage management, light and sound and choreography.
"What Are They Saying" is performing this Thursday, September 17, at 8pm, at the Showtime Comedy Club, 13343 S. Cicero Avenue in Crestwood, Illinois. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. For more information, please contact Rod Lewis, Artistic Director, at 708-769-9880.
