Oh for sure. We like to call it the "center of the universe" when it comes to comedy and improv. Seemed appropriate since its all about characters.

I always think of Chicago as the birthplace of improv because of the Second City.

The picture of the group is of the stage at the iO theater in Chicago.

Dialogue, characters, emotion, staying in the moment while writing a first draft. All was helped from improv/acting. Such a cool and unexpected link!

I'll join this group - even though I haven't acted in a awhile.  But all the training that I had in improv classes, acting classes, onstage, and on film has really helped me become a better writer.  My strength has always been in dialogue and I think that has come from improv training and having to slip into different characters and situations quickly.

I'll start by saying that even if I just end up talking to myself for the next couple of months that's okay. I think this group has a lot of potential, and I for one found my writing soar after taking improv and acting classes.
