It's not hard out here for a Pimprov at Chicago's Chemically Imbalanced Theater. The show has been hailed by critics and audiences alike as one of the most original and hilarious unscripted comedy events in town. Performers include Mark Bratton as "Ho'Lease," Jonathan Keaton as tap-dance happy "Daddy Jenkins," creator Marz Timms as the enterprising "Grand Finale," and Keith Smitherman as the enforcer "Poochie." With plenty of opportunity for audience involvement, Pimprov provides a dangerously funny and always unpredictable evening of laugh-filled entertainment. Learn More

Arriving to the venue was not easy. There was literally NO parking although rght across the steet, there was an open parking lot. I thought to myself, why not ask the people that own the lot to borrow it for a night so people aren't coming in late or having to park blocks away. That night it was raining but regardless, this is a busy area and we had a very hard time finding parking. The building was easy to find once we arrived, there was someone to greet us, which was nice. We sat and waited until we were allowed in the stage area where we had general admission seats. We sat in the front almost touching the audience. That was interesting but the place is so small that no matter where you sit, it's a good seat! Drinks were very inexpensive and that was very nice. My husband & I sat and talked and before we know it, the play was starting. This was a great play with EXCELLENT ACTORS. It took you on a journey that was unexpected and real. It was quirky, funny, and entertaining. Almost immediately, you begin to care about the characters and thiss lasts until the end. The comedy addition to such heavy subjects added a level of emotional paste that some may not know what to do with. The ride was fun and personally, I enjoy the irony into REAL-NESS like this play. It made me think to myself, 'should I be laughing at this?' I loved it. Chemically Imbalanced Comedy is a perfect name for a play like this.
