Reviews for WNT, Saturday Super Show
The Chicago Reader spent a recent Saturday night with us, and had nothing but great things to say about our upstairs lineup – the venerable Whirled News Tonight (now in its tenth year) and the all-new Saturday Super Show. Here’s what they had to say:
Whirled News Tonight – “… ten years is impressive… fascinating, funny scenes with the ease of an ace jazz ensemble.”
Saturday Super Show – “… moments of pure inspiration (notably the laconic John Thibodeaux and the lunatic Eleise Moore)… they listen to and care about each other… this energetic group still plays like puppies… winning laughs…” – Chicago Reader
Come see what all the fuss is about. Tickets for both shows are on sale right now. Give us a call at 773-880-0199 to book your reservations today!

Third chance to see the hit show!
Due to overwhelming demand, we’re adding a THIRD chance for you to see the Improvised Shakespeare Co., Thursdays at 8:00 in the DCT!
Tickets are just $14, and the first Thursday show is this week, June 20th! Don’t miss it!
8:00 in the Cab starting July 2!
Long a Wednesday night fixture, the incomparable improv duo Dummy (Colleen Doyle and Jason Shotts) are moving to Tuesdays! Starting July 2nd, they’ll take over the slot previously occupied by Cook County Social Club, 8:00 in our Cabaret Theater.
Colleen and Jason have a well-earned reputation as a top-flight improvisers, and bring unparalleled chemistry to the stage. It’s hard to pay a higher compliment than this, in the words of the Chicago Tribune’s Nina Metz
“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 every Tuesday night at 10:30 in the Del Close Theater.
Hilarious FREE Jellyvision Game!
