Why See Thirsty?

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.

One of various improv troupes in Chicago including the legendary Comedysportz, this successful show is a sparkling combination of improvised scenarios, brand-new songs and of course, plenty of booze to oil the wheels. Not for the teetotal or faint of heart, this show encourages audience participation at the highest levels, making no two shows alike.
