A chance to play with Tara after Armando!
The summer smash hit DeFrancisco returns tonight! Tara DeFrancisco, a veteran performer (SC, iO, ComedySportz, ABC Family), pulls one lucky audience member out of the audience to become her COstar in this production. The person must be a student enrolled in improv classes or completely unfamiliar with performing an improvisational show, who willingly threw an ID into the lottery pre-show that evening. Tara & CO will then premiere their one-time-only 2 person feat, a 25 minute improv show. Hailed as “absolutely amazing”, “groundbreaking”, “improv as outreach”, and “some of the most patient, playful work” seen at iO Chicago, this run debuts on January 7, 2013.
We’re happy to announce the opening of registration for our insanely popular Summer Intensive. The 2013 edition will take place July 8th through August 8th. Check out the Summer Intensive page on our website by clicking here or contact our Training Center for more details (phone: 773-880-0199, email: firstname.lastname@example.org).

Chicago Tribune raves
Nina Metz of the Chicago Tribune ravces about Dummy, the late-night Wednesday anchor in the Del Close Theater starring Colleen Doyle and Jason Shotts. It’s hard to pay a higher compliment than this:
“For years T.J. Jagodowski and Dave Pasquesi have reigned as Chicago’s must-see two-person improv team. After catching a recent set from Colleen Doyle and Jason Shotts at iO Theater, I think it’s safe to say there’s room on that improv pedestal for yet another pair of performers.”
Read the whole review here, and catch Dummy with Murderers every Wednesday night at 10:30 in the Del Close Theater.
