Music Sketch Comedy
From the fall of 2008, until the summer of 2015, I lived and breathed improv and sketch comedy in Chicago. I performed on three different improv teams at iO Chicago. I performed archive material at the Second City and spent two seasons with their Outreach and Diversity company. Not to mention the numerous smaller store front theatres like CIC, The Upstairs Gallery and The Pub Theatre that allowed me to put up far too many independent shows to count.
