Jim Belushi and the Board of Comedy are back at the Ice House Comedy Clubfor one night only on Saturday, November 1. Tickets are $30 and are on sale now. This is a Special Event show.
With more than thirty years of experience and an alumnus of Saturday Night Live and Chicago’s famed Second City, Jim Belushi is now bringing to the stage an improvised comedy sketch show featuring members of the Board of Comedy.
A favorite of film, television and stage audiences, Belushi is one of the great leading character actors equally at home in drama and comedy.
Belushi starred on the ABC hit comedy According to Jim, on which he also served as executive producer, music composer and director. After wrapping 182 episodes for its eighth and final season, the family favorite series also hit a milestone when it launched into off-net syndication in 2007.
Accompanying Belushi are Megan Grano, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad Morris, and Joshua Funk*, all of whom are classically trained professional improvisers who tour regularly nationwide.
Belushi says of the show, “We are not stand-up comedians. Our show is not a passive, sit-back-and-watch experience. Most of the fun we have on stage comes from our inclusion of the audience – we get suggestions from them to begin each scene we perform, and in certain instances, bring them on-stage with us to add to our performance. It’s less a ‘show’ and more a party. At least it feels like one to me. This group of actors brings me right back to how I started out in comedy – maybe that’s why we have so much fun doing it.”
