Lethal Action Force is a no holds barred action thrill ride that gives you the action movie YOU want to see. Influenced by the golden age of the action movies (1983-1994), these improvisers show you a complete action movie filled with explosions, fight scenes, and romance. You give us the title we give you the movie.

The Katydids are a six member ensemble of some of Chicago’s best up and coming performers whose names all happen to be derived from Katherine. In addition to improvisation and sketch comedy, they are known for creating and producing successful short videos, some of which have been featured on such sites as The Huffington Post, MTV, Perez Hilton, Smosh, Cosmopolitan, Italy’s Vanity Fair, College Humor, and The Chicago Sun Times. They are also actors, writers, and executive producers of the popular web series, TEACHERS, which recently teamed up with The Onion to debut five unreleased episodes on their YouTube channel. Collectively, the women have performed for The Second City Touring Company, Broadway in Chicago, and TBS’ Just for Laughs. In addition to theatres throughout Chicago, The Katydids have appeared at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City and at iO West in Los Angeles.They are based out of iO Chicago (formerly Improv Olympic) and their improv is coached by The Second City Mainstage alumnus Anthony LeBlanc.
