For over a decade, the Reckoning has played to packed houses and critical acclaim at iO Chicago and toured across the country with their singular brand of long-form improvisation. Hailed as “hands-down, the best in Chicago” and “a versatile rock band” of improvisers, they are known for their unpredictable shows and forms, as well as experimentation and innovation as ensemble.
The five members who now call Los Angeles home bring the Reckoning’s unique style to the iO West Mainstage.
“A powerhouse of improvised brilliance, developing the sort of close interpersonal relationships that result in abundant onstage chemistry” – The Onion A.V. Club
“Every once in awhile, a team comes along that elevates the form above the everyday… such is the case with the Reckoning” – TimeOut Chicago
“While there are many funny troupes out there, there aren’t nearly as many who can truly act, who can fully maintain the integrity of their characters. You don’t have to worry about that with The Reckoning.” – Charleston City Paper
“…a psychotic dreamscape of madcap comedy.” – The Bastion
“See them while you still can.” – NewCity
