Creepin' | Under the Gun Theater | Improv/Sketch | Chicago Reader


When: Fridays. Continues through July 28 2017

Comedy troupes have come a long way from shouted one-word audience suggestions to conjure inspiration for improv sets. Nowadays, half the game is coming up with clever jumping-off points based on live interviews or found material to inform truly original, in-the-moment premises. Under the Gun Theater has made that something of a specialty over the years, finding great gags in sources from board games to pop culture franchises to remaindered books. This late-night Friday set tries to use one of its audience's least flattering social media habits—lurking on crushes—to formulate story threads. The results are limited, so a few leaders often bear the brunt of stepping in to try to forge coherent comedic through lines. —Dan Jakes
