AND GUEST, a showcase of some of Chicago’s finest improv talent!

CHICAGO, IL – June, 5 2004. DSI THEATER, the company currently producing The Beatbox, produces a third run of its show And Guest, which originally debuted December 2002. In keeping with show format, DSI will showcase a headlining team (OHIO) and a new special guest each week (schedule enclosed) for a double-feature of fast-paced, high-energy longform improvisation!

And Guest will feature improvisers trained at ComedySportz, ImprovOlympic, Annoyance Theater and The Second City Conservatory. The featured team – OHIO – brings its own unique brand of two-person improv comedy to the stage under the direction of both Zach Ward, one half of the critically-acclaimed Duo Dual Exhaust (Winner – 2004 Cagematch Championship) and Megan Kellie, member of the critically-acclaimed sketch comedy group BRICK and a featured performer with ImprovOlympic’s Monster Island.

And Guest will run Thursdays at 10:30pm, June 24th through July 29th at the Playground Theater, 3209 North Halsted Ave. Tickets are $10. Call for reservations, 773-426-7820, or go online and search for “and guest” at www.ticketweb.com
