Matt Damon Improv

Women of Color Slaying Comedy. We Aren't The Real Matt Damon...You're Welcome


Oct
1
to Dec 17

Open Run at Annoyance Theater

We now have an open run!

Join us every Sunday, 9:30PM at Annoyance Theater for badass WOC, POC openers, and lovely Matt Damons/Lena Dunham! 

The cast of Matt Damon Improv is comprised of all women of color “slaying improv comedy,” sometimes featuring a special guest white male(Matt Damon) or female (Lena Dunham) improv comedy veteran who can only speak when repeating things that the women of Matt Damon Improv have already said in the show – forcing the guest Matt Damon/Lena Dunham to really listen and take a baby step in a woman of color’s shoes. 

The weekly variety show will also showcase guest stand-up, sketch comedy, and solo performance acts by women of color. Each weekly show promises to be “Intersectional AF” and provide a safe platform for women of color to share performances that confront the current racial tension and social issues within the world around us.

Allison Reese's Solo Show Preview feat. Matt Damon Improv

My name is Allison M. Reese. When I first moved to Chicago from LA I asked a man who had a lot of power and influence in this community for notes. He told me that I was a bad team player and needed to be a better ensemble member. That man is dead now, he choked eating his own bullshit and passed away from being a piece of shit since you are what you eat. On a completely related note: I am writing a solo show and want to test out my material before I put the final touches on it. Legendary Chicago Improv team "Matt Damon Improv" (a team I love more than everything except Pizza) will be opening the show with a dope ass set! So you get a two for one! Come through. Laugh, Love, Evolve past the basics in your life. I will be forever grateful!

Self Care

In such stressful times, it is vital that we take care of ourselves and our community. It will be a night of good vibes sans comedy and politics. "A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle." 

This is open to anyone, but please do not come or bring anything mind altering like alcohol or drugs. We hope to see you there. It will be free admission (donations for the rent and snacks will be accepted but not expected).
