Jason Shotts and Colleen Doyle are the long-form improv duo DUMMY. They’ve performed for audiences in Chicago, New York, Washington DC, Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Gainesville, Detroit, Atlanta, Traverse City and Cleveland. Combined they have twenty-eight some-odd years improv experience and more than seven years of roommate experience.
“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. ” – Chicago Tribune
“(Recommended) Doyle and Shotts invest their interactions with the excitement of discovery…it’s not hard to feel the love.”
– Chicago Reader
“Do real-life couples have an advantage when it comes to improv?…the answer appears to be yes. If you like unfussy character-based work it was worth the wait to see Doyle and Shotts. Throughout, the simple chemistry and truthfulness of Doyle and Shotts carried the evening.” – Chicago Tribune
