My Improv/Sketch Calendar This Week

I've been back in town for two weeks now and keeping busy.

Monday: BlueCo plays The Best of Second City on Mainstage.  It is Liz Reuss' last night with BlueCo.  Tickets are still available so have a drink in Liz' honor and stay for the set after the show.

Tuesday: Pending any scheduling conflicts, I'll be headed to Secrets, Lies, and Alibis' March Show at the Elbo Room.  The show starts at 8:30 PM and will be hosted by Alex Seligsohn.  The show has an incredible line-up:
Azhar Usman ("American's Funniest Muslim" by CNN, Opened for Dave Chappelle 50+ times, MTV, Funny or Die)
Natalie Jose (Last Comic Standing, Sadsacks and Wisecracks)
Sammy Arechar (RIOT Fest LA, Standup Standup)
Amanda Lynn Deal (Secrets, Lies & Alibis, Ego Trip Club)
Shanna Strum (Life of the Pahrty)
Becca Brown (School of Rock, iO)

Wednesday: I'm usually always at the free 8 PM show at iO on Wednesday nights.  Playing in the Del Close Theater this week are Big Judy, Virgin Daiquiri, and Carl and the Passions.

Thursday: I'll be a regular on Thursday nights at Second City Mainstage's free set.

ETC is in the process of creating the 40th Second City ETC revue so their third act will feature scenes they are working on for the next revue in addition to some improvised sketches.
