Jim Belushi & the Chicago Board of Comedy to Headline Comedy Works Landmark Village, 6/14-15
With more than thirty years of experience and an alumnus of Saturday Night Live and Chicago's famed Second City, Jim Belushi is now bringing to the stage an improvised comedy sketch show featuring members of the Chicago Board of Comedy.
Belushi starred on the ABC hit comedy According to Jim, on which he also served as executive producer, music composer and director. After wrapping 182 episodes for its eighth and final season, the family favorite series also hit a milestone when it launched into off-net syndication in 2007. 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 are Robert Belushi, Larry Joe Campbell, Jon Barinholtz, and Brad Morris, all of whom are classically trained professional improvisers who tour regularly nationwide. Belushi describes the show himself: "We are not stand-up comedians. Our show is not a passive, sit- back-and-watch experience. Most of the fun we have on stage comes from our inclusion of the audience... It's less a 'show' and more a party. At least it feels like one to me. This group of actors brings me right back to how I started out in comedy."
