Lincoln Park Comedy

The Harold @ iO Theater
Created by Del Close and Charna Halpern, The Harold is iO’s signature long-form piece. The piece begins with a single audience suggestion, and from there, a team of improvisers explore the suggestion by creating disparate stories, characters and themes that eventually weave together seamlessly, like the instruments of a jazz band.

The Second City’s She the People
This mimosa-and-madness-fueled foray from The Second City roasts the patriarchy, taking on everything from having it all…to having that sick feeling your government is trying to send you back to the Middle Ages.
