Jim Belushi and the Chicago Board of Comedy Make Special Appearance at ImprovBoston
The internationally-renowned comedian, movie star and television personality teamed up with legendary Second City improvisers to deliver a hilarious hour-long, highly interactive set filled with Italian arias, reggae and rap ballads and improvised yoga. Belushi starred on the ABC hit comedy "According to Jim," on which he also served as executive producer, music composer and director. A favorite of film, television and stage audiences, Belushi is one of the great leading character actors equally at home in drama and comedy, and a gifted performer who can also hold a room as front man of a rhythm and blues band. Accompanying Belushi onstage were Megan Grano, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad Morris, and Joshua Funk with Trey Stone on the piano, all professional improvisers who regularly tour nationwide. "We are thrilled for ImprovBoston to host a growing list of comedians with national profile in addition to our own incredible roster of local talent," says Artistic Director Mike Descoteaux.
