The venue is connected to the Woodfield mall. It was on Black Friday. We took Uber to the Mall and didn't need to contend with the traffic or parking.

The improv gives priority seating to diners, if u do not choose to eat before show- be sure to get there early to sit closer, its 425 seats - it is still a good design everyone is pretty close to stage but if you want to get extra close, get there early

Bryan was a riot! He was doing full body comedy. That doesn't mean slapstick but he used the whole stage and his whole body to make us laugh. It was a great show.

Description

Bryan Callen is often recognized from his numerous film and television roles. Currently, he can be seen in a macho performance as Samir, the Middle Eastern strip club owner/gun runner in The Hangover II. Audiences also remember him as Eddie, the Middle Eastern owner of the wedding chapel in The Hangover. Next, he’ll appear in Lions Gate’s Warrior with Tom Hardy, scheduled for release in September 2011. Starting in late summer, he’ll play Captain Frank Dashell, the leader of the Undead Task Force, whose job it is to rid the valley of Los Angeles of zombies, werewolves, and vampires in the upcoming MTV comedy series, Death Valley. In addition, he recently filmed his new one-hour special titled Bryan Callen: Man Class, which will premiere later this year.

Born in the Phillipines, Callen spent the first fourteen years of his life overseas in countries like India, Pakistan, Greece and Lebanon, before moving to the U.S. He went to high school in Massachusetts and earned his B.A. in History at American University in Washington, D.C.

Callen began doing standup in New York in 1993 and in 1995, he moved to Los Angeles where he made his television debut as one of the eight original cast members on MADtv and he appeared on the show for two seasons, until 1997. His most popular characters included Pool Boy from Cabana Chat with Dixie Wetsworth and motivational speaker Al Casdy. Callen also performed impersonations of Bill Clinton, Robert De Niro, Luke Perry, Steven Seagal, Jim Carrey, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Frank Gifford.

After leaving MADtv, he went on to play numerous roles on the small screen. He had a brief fling with Carrie Bradshaw on HBO’s Sex and the City where he played an overzealous lover who turns sex into a hydraulic experience, which she refers to as ‘jackrabbit sex.’ He also appeared as Kirstie Alley’s wisecracking assistant on Showtime’s comedy series, Fat Actress. In addition, he has snagged roles on Californication, Oz, Entourage, 7th Heaven, King of Queens, Stacked, Las Vegas, West Wing, News Radio, Significant Others, CSI, Law and Order: SVU, NYPD Blue, Suddenly Susan, and Frasier. He can currently be seen as a recurring character on USA’s In Plain Sight, as well as CBS’s How I Met Your Mother.

On the big screen, Callen has been seen in numerous other movies including Todd Phillips’s Old School, Scary Movie 4, Bad Santa, and The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard for producer Will Ferrell.  

Between television appearances and making movies, Callen headlines clubs and colleges throughout the U.S. and internationally.
