EndGames is proud to present one of the Annoyance Theatre's teachers and performers Jimmy Pennington!
Jimmy Pennington moved to Chicago from Pennsylvania in 2006 to study and perform improvisation. Since then, he has had the opportunity to learn from some of Chicago's smartest and funniest performers. After performing at iO for a few years, Jimmy was asked to understudy the incredible Annoyance production 40 Whacks, which lead to him joining the cast of CoEd Prison Sluts. Annoyance credits include Doublewide Lust, It's Christmas Goddammit, Splatter Theater, Lonesome Drifter, The Annoyance Christmas Pageant, his autobiographical Jimmy of Nazareth, and many others. Jimmy is especially excited to show students the potential joy of improvising that comes from Annoyance's particular style of performance; specifically the freedom from character co-dependency. Jimmy continues to perform at various theaters around Chicago, but will always consider The Annoyance his home.

When & Where
Endgames improv is about comedy, community, and putting live performances in front of San Francisco. We believe a few things. First, everyone deserves good comedy. Shows shouldn't cost twenty dollars, which is why all our shows cost ten dollars or less. Most of them are five. A lot of them are FREE. Second, we believe in our community of students, performers, and teachers. This is our community, and it can be YOUR community, too. Come be a part of what we do.
