with Joe Bill and Ed Furman
Improv guru Joe Bill and Chicago comedy icon Ed Furman have been improvising together for 25 years. Their show JED offers a chance to see two improv veterans explore, ravage, and mutilate a single suggestion in real time. JED creates a one-act play before your very eyes; no edits, no safety nets, no foolin’. Sometimes edgy, sometimes poignant, sometimes almost uncomfortably too intense, JED always delivers on the laughs as it takes you on a journey.
