I’ll be performing in Mullaney Chain at the Del Close Marathon this weekend. I am super excited about the lineup. These are some of the best improvisors and funniest guys I know. I invited Andy Secunda. He invited Gavin Speiller. Gavin invited John Gemberling, and John invited Andy Rocco. The show is at 5:45pm at the Hudson. Skip the line at UCB Chelsea and start your DCM15 with us. Bassprov is directly after!
I’ll also be in the 7pm show at UCB Chelsea with most (if not all) of the former and current UCBT Artistic Directors in ADeez Nutz.

A Workshop with Kevin Mullaney
Behavior is a Game
This is a four hour workshop with CIF Artistic Director Kevin Mullaney.
Observe your scene partner, call out their behavior, respond impulsively and let the circumstances tumble out to make a game.
Some of the most fun games to play in a scene come from the emotional interplay of the characters. One player’s behavior inspires an impulsive response in their partner. Patterns of behavior emerge and help form behavior-based games. Justifications bubble up from your unconscious to make sense of what’s happening which leads to more ideas of how to play the game.
Due mainly to my ongoing preparations for the Chicago Improv Festival, I have rescheduled the start date of my Tuesday night class. It will now be starting on April 9th and go to June 4th. The class is for intermediate and advanced performers and includes 4 performances. The cost is $199.
