ColdTowne

Austin

Besides founding a theater and as a result bringing the joy of improv to thousands,the members of ColdTowne are also fantastic performers. ColdTowne's shows are darkly satiric character pieces that explore the absurd predictability of human behavior in all its many forms. While the flow of the show changes with each set, expect deep character work and comedy hijinks.

ColdTowne puts character ahead of stories and ideas in their improv. Situations arise from their character's warped and unreasonable perspectives on the world around them.

The residents of ColdTowne come from a variety of backgrounds: absurdist art, journalism, and business. Together they populate ColdTowne with long- and short-form improv, sketch, stand-up, screenwriting, guerilla film, music, and lots of nerdy blogging.

"Performance, to them, is more important than anything else in the world, even survival ..." - YesAnd.com

"...one of Austin's top troupes..." - The Onion

"...talented and enthusiastic performers." - The Austin Chronicle

"...combining old school commitment and tenacity with a new school sense of exploration and thrill-seeking..." - Jose Gonzalez, Phoenix Improv Festival

"...that shit’s mad-impressive-pressure-awesome. And what they’re doing for the cultural development of our fair city shouldn’t go unnoticed." - The Austinist

The Reckoning

Location

The Reckoning is the longest-running, most infamous improv group in Chicago.

“These players always stand out when they appear in other ensembles, and together, as masters of iO’s signature form, the Harold, they’re remarkably consistent at giving audiences something to laugh at and students something
to study.” –Chicago Reader

Each member currently performs, teaches, and hangs out in LA, New York, Gainseville, or Chicago at iOChicago, Second City, ComedySportz, and the Annoyance. Individually they are strong comedic performers and have found thier own success, but together they are the Reckoning.

"…a psychotic dreamscape of madcap comedy." - The Bastion

"While there are many funny troupes out there, there aren't nearly as many who can truly act, who can fully maintain the integrity of their characters. You don't have to worry about that with The Reckoning." - Charleston City Paper
