Thirsty

Apollo Theater Studio

Until May 20, 2017

What better way to get under the influence than a night full of hilarious improv comedy, combined with a cheeky drink or three?! Now embarking on its ninth season, each Friday and Saturday welcomes the cream of Chicago comedy to bring a new kind of audience participation show, making each show completely unique. And when combined with the emboldening effects of booze, you get hilarious improvised scenes, new drinking games and more than a few naughty songs! A fantastic way to bond with family, friends and work colleagues (provided you're good friends with them!), this experience has been likened to Whose Line Is It, Anyway, meeting a keg of beer.

Apollo Theater Chicago

venue exterior

2540 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614

Comprising two theaters under the same roof, this Apollo Theater is not in fact the first entertainment complex in Chicago to carry the name; there used to be a movie theater that was sold to United Artists in 1929 and demolished in 1989. Happily for this new Apollo, this venue has seen some of the city's most acclaimed and successful productions play upon its two stages., and shows no sign of stopping yet.
