SteelStacks Improv Comedy Festival

January 20 & 21, 2017

The SteelStacks Improv Comedy Festival is two days of almost-but-not-quite non-stop improv comedy. Each day features a marathon-style lineup of sets by performers from around the world.

The fest is set to return January 20-21, 2017 and will feature headline performances by The Improvised Shakespeare Company and Hunter Nelson & Terry Withers’ “David Mamet’s The New David Mamet Play.”

Improvised Shakespeare Company
Improvised Shakespeare COmpany

The Improvised Shakespeare Company, has been performing its critically-acclaimed show to sold out audiences in Chicago since 2005. Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written) The Improvised Shakespeare Co. creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your very eyes!

Hunter Nelson & Terry Withers:
David Mamet’s The New David Mamet Play

A Hilarious Spoof Of A Modern Classic – Comedic Improvisers Hunter Nelson & Terry Withers are veteran performers and teachers at some of the most notable improv comedy institutions in the country, including the UCB Theatre, Magnet Theatre, Baltimore Improv Group & Reckless Theatre. While they insist David Mamet has retained them to workshop his newest, ever changing script, audiences are certain they make up each “workshop” as they go. And nothing could delight them more than the improvised madness these two pros deliver, always in a pitch perfect tone matching Mr. Mamet’s more famous works.

The New David Mamet play was developed by The Reckless Theatre in NYC, with an abundance of bravery and generosity.
