Check out Nina Metz’ great review of our newest sketch offering: Virgin Daiquiri’s “Lean Back.”
“Saturday Night Live” cast members Cecily Strong and Aidy Bryant came up through the all-female improv team Virgin Daiquiri at iO, which says something about this group’s ability to attract and hone talent.
You can catch its Wednesday-night gig every week at iO — or for the next month or so, their new sketch show in the late-night Saturday slot. Either way you’re in safe hands. “Lean Back” doesn’t feel markedly different from a Virgin Daiquiri improv show in that you don’t walk away thinking, “Wow, they are even sharper when working from scripted material.” The quality feels pretty much the same, which is to say it’s very good." – Chicago Tribune
Come check out the show every Saturday night at 10:30 in our Del Close Theater. Tickets are only $14!
Late Night host and iO alum's priceless advice
Seth Meyers dropped a little anecdote from his time at iO on Wednesday’s “Late Night.” If you ever find your improv team desperately wanting to throw your Cagematch show, you’d do well to heed Seth’s advice.
Jordan Klepper, an iO alum and founding castmember of our improvised news satire program Whirled News Tonight, has tapped to join the Daily Show as a correspondent. He’ll make his debut on tonight’s program, reporting “live” from Ukraine. Tune in and cheer him on!
iO Goes Intercontinental!
iO is pleased to announce that we will be holding a week long intensive in Copenhagen, Denmark. We are still firming up class locations and will provide more information when available.
The Longform Intensive is a week-long crash course that will immerse you in the world of long-form improvisation, giving you the tools you need to be a successful performer. Our instructors are working actors and improvisers, in the trenches themselves every day, so the training you get is always relevant and challenging.
The intensive will take place Monday, April 14th – Friday, April 18th. The class will meet from 11am-6:00pm each day. There will be a one hour break for lunch.
The instructors for the intensive are: Charna Halpern, Colleen Doyle, Jet Eveleth, Lyndsay Hailey, and Tara DeFrancisco.
Tuition for the intensive is $450 and non refundable.
Registration for the intensive is open!
