The iO training program culminates in eight weeks of graduation shows in the Del Close Theater. We’ve all been training at iO for over a year now, and we work together wonderfully as an ensemble. I’ve met some of my best friends in the Chicago comedy community here at iO.
This past Sunday was the second show in my class’s run and we all wore super hero t-shirts to commemorate Jason Chin!
The above photo was taken by the lovely and talented Abby Tebeau 🙂 When I shared it on Facebook, I captioned it:
“I don’t have the words to describe what just went down in our set at the DCT at iO. Crazy Chernobyl style mutant zombies, German beer gardens with nazi overtones, and dead babies all over the stage. I think Jason Chin would have laughed at at least some of it! :)”
There was a sort of crazy energy to our performance, and i thought to myself at the end that it was a bizarro, zany, nutty and somewhat creepy performance. I hope Jason saw it from above, and I hope he laughed before facepalming ^_^
6 weeks left to catch us performing!
