    Not only has iO churned out legendary folk like Mike Meyers and Amy Poehler, but it consistently puts the art of improv first. The shows are cheap and the classes a must for budding improvisers. -JJ 続きを見る

    The talent is phenomenal (You'll laugh so hard, you'll cry!), and the staff is very friendly, patient, & helpful. It was my first time at iO- Went to see LaRoyce Hawkins perform. Can't wait to return!

    Famous for training some of the sharpest minds in comedy today, iO Theater is a leader in improv comedy and hosts shows 7 nights a week. Plan on a fun–and surprising!–night out in Wrigleyville.

    All shows and classes here are fantastic! Top performances include TJ and Dave, The Reckoning, and Chaos Theory. Great place to bring a date or hang out with a group of friends any night of the week!

    Shakespeare Improvised is SO FUNNY. The actors are immensely talented. I've been to this show 3 times and it is consistently well worth the ticket price.

    Maybe we came on an off night, but the show (The Quitting Contest, Cherry Street) was not funny at all. It was painful to watch & we paid good money for it too. 😏

    Went to improvised Shakespeare which was hilarious. I’ve heard that they refuse to hire women onto this team though which seems like an unnecessary rule

    There's no doubt about it, the house that improv legend Del Close and founding partner Charna Halpern built rules.
