The ISES Chicago Chapter’s October event was an educational event with a creative twist.  Attendees were encouraged to share a personal experience regarding an “Event Nightmare” on the ComedySportz Theater Stage.  The talented ComedySportz actors recreated each story in a series of improve comedy acts.

ComedySportz is the longest running short form improv comedy show in Chicago. They have a unique interactive show enables guests to drive the show with their input.

Attendees arrived to ComedySportz, located in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, and were directed to the second floor where they joined other attendees for an hour of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and networking.  The Halloween inspired décor provided by M & M Special Events Company gave a festive feel to the space.

At 6:00 PM, attendees were directed from the reception area into the theater to pick a seat for the show.  Chapter President, Nicole Zenner welcomed all guests, recognized new attendees, and introduced our Master of Ceremonies, Greg Wrestler of ComedySportz.  Greg took the stage, explained the program to the attendees, and encouraged everyone take the stage!  After a brief and energetic introduction of the ComedySportz actors, the show began!

There were a total of five attendees that took take the stage and share their “nightmares”.  Everyone was laughing, not only at the stories of our peers, but the improv skits from the talented actors.  Their creativity and comedic talent brought so much energy to the audience and event.

The event would not be success without our grateful sponsors of the evening, ComedySportz, M&M Special Events Company, and Food Evolution.

The entire evening of laughs was captured by the talented, Rebecca Ickes of Rebecca Marie Photography.
