The news is real, everything else is improvised.

Whirled News Tonight is the critically acclaimed, popular, long-running improvised news satire that is currently running at Chicago’s famed iO Theater on Saturday nights at 8:00 PM.

Whirled News Tonight 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 articles on which to base their improvisation.

The show was created by Jason R. Chin and has been playing to many sold-out, standing ovation crowds since September 2003.
