I really enjoyed myself as I didn't know what to expect at first. At the very end I found the show very entertaining and also pretty hilarious. I would definitely go back again as I know that no 2 shows are the same.

We loved "Baby Wants Candy." The show was hilarious (our suggested show title involved Ophra and werewolves). The actors and musicians were very good and really presented a funny, cohesive, and not too long show from scratch just based on the...continued

This show was hilarious!! What an amazing cast! I took my best friend to see it for his birthday and we had a wonderful time! The live band was a wonderful addition and made some of the scenes! I highly recommend seeing this show.

Lots of fun, crowd energy, and adult beverages available in the lobby... well worth it!

Absolutely outstanding. I could not believe how gifted and spontaneous the cast was, and it left me laughing the entire time. I plan to go back and bring friends. (Bonus: bar right outside theater is cheap!)

A great change of pace if you...continued

If you are a fan of improv, music and like to laugh - you will like this show.
The actors are funny, witty, creative, and can mostly sing. (the entire show is a musical)

Would be good for a group of pals - new or old, a first date, double...continued

I expected more audience participation throughout, so it wasn't quite the "improv" experience I was looking for. Somewhat funny, but I wouldn't go again.

I've seen Baby Wants Candy more times than I can count on two hands. Every time it's different and every time I laugh until I almost wet my pants! They are just so damn clever! This show is like Improv meets the cast of Glee. If that sounds good...continued

It was really good. Amazing some of the things they come up with on the spot like that!

Every show is different??? You could tell a lot of the scenes were generic enough to fit any story line. A few of the performers were stage hogs and didn't really give the others much performance time. As is true with all improv shows, some are...continued

Really wonderful, talented troupe with a great, improvisatory live band. Your Chicago improv experience is not complete without seeing them.

The audience throws out a topic and the ensemble acts out the topic in musical form - an entertaining time!

This was really funny... we had a good time. We would go back again to catch another show, the actors were great, they were pretty sharp.

Really vulgar, they went for the easy laugh rather than the earned laugh a lot. I'm ok with risque humour, this was beyond that and went well over the line never looking back. The crowd skewed very young and the gay/sex/poop jokes seemed to...continued

Throughly enjoyed this show, definitely worth the price. I actually had several belly laughs (the kind where you're almost completely out of breath). I recommend this show and I will absolutely return.

Best comedy/musical/improv show I've been to. The audience throws out ideas for the musical and the cast takes it from there. You don't know what they'll do next, but it'll probably be funny.

We liked Baby Wants Candy, but we wished they picked another person's idea for the plot. The cast did a great job of integrating the idea into the theme. Sometimes it worked and at other times it was strange. Kudos to the cast!

Improv with a subject performed as a musical. It was funny and a bit silly at times. I would go again to see a different show.
