  • Whirled News Tonight is an improvised show that strives to not only provide a satirical turn on current events but to provide another, human, point of view of those stories.

    When the audience arrives they will be brought to a table with several local and national publications where they can cut out any articles they are interested in and tack them onto several bulletin boards onstage. The cast will randomly choose these articles throughout the show to inspire their improvised scenes..

    Currently in its 15th year run, Whirled News Tonight performs every Saturday night at 8pm and 10:30pm at Chicago's famed iO Theater.

    Created & Directed by Jason R. Chin

    Starring: Emily Anderson, Atra Asdou, Becca Barish, Brooke Breit, Marla Caceres, Padraic Connelly, Alex Eilhauer, John P. Glynn, Brett Lyons, Megan O’Neill, Eddie Pina, Adal Rifai, Rob White, and Shane Wilson.

    Whirled News Tonight alumni include: Sarah Haskins (Trophy Wife), Jordan Klepper (The Daily Show), Arnie Niekamp (Hello From the Magic Tavern), Steve Waltien, Sarah Wonak, and Matt Young (Magic Tavern).
