Hilariously Entertaining


The Examiner

ISC founder Blaine Swen has assembled quite possibly the most handsome, winning, smartest, wittiest, silly, talented, ambitious, intelligent troupe in Chicago. They completely improvise a Shakespearean play complete with references, archetypes, allusions, and sometimes even iambic pentameter. Sure English Majors will geek out at how smart their Platonic references are but that average person will find their acting, bits, and timing all hilariously entertaining. They can do high brow, low brow, fast, slow, topical, and historical AND have it all be funny. That's The BEST!
