Famed Improv Theater iO’s The Armando Diaz Experience
Chicago has long been known as a hotbed for creating comedy stars, and one of the main reasons for that is the iO Theater, one of the premier places in the world to catch improv comedy. Begun by Adam McKay (SNL, Anchorman), David Koechner (The Office, American Dad!) and Armando Diaz (founder of Magnet Theater in New York), The Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience Movement & Hootenanny is iO’s longest-running show and a Chicago comedy institution. In this two-act, long-form improv show, a monologist kicks things off by telling a few stories from his or her life, which some of the city’s best improvisers then spin off into hilarious off-the-cuff scenes.
