Our improv performers include:
David Barron: Dave received his BA in Theatre and BFA from the Ringling Brothers Clown College where he trained to be a circus clown. David had the honor of spending a weekend learning improv from Del Close 37 years ago and has been studying and performing improv every week for the last 7 years.
Fred Fedewa: Fred has completed improv coursework at Second City, The Annoyance, iO Chicago and Westside Improv. He performs regularly at The Bit Theater in Aurora, IL. When he is not working on his performance, he can be found hiking the trails of the Morton Arboretum, Prairie Path and local forest preserves.
Matt Johnson: Matt is an actor and playwright in the West suburbs. He’s currently working to bring the arts to schools without a program for theatre and is dedicated to bringing elements of improv into all he does.
Raju Ben: Raju Ben is an up-and-coming comedian, marking his stamp in the Chicago Improv community. He’s already a proud alumnus of Second City and IO Theatre. Random facts: He likes to brainstorm possible conversations whenever he attends events and gatherings. Before his performance, he wants to set the bar low, expect a flopped version so he can get it out of his system.
Susie McCormick: Susie began creating alternate realities onstage through improv when she realized actual reality wasn’t that great and could use improvement. She is a graduate of the Annoyance Theater improv program, is a member of One Group Mind at Comedy Clubhouse in Chicago and Incognito Mode Improv in Downers Grove, and has been the member of various improv teams throughout Chicagoland. She has also written and performed sketch comedy shows at Second City and Westside Improv in Wheaton.
