Chicago’s longest running improvised comedy show, “The Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience Movement & Hootenanny”, aka, “THE ARMANDO DIAZ EXPERIENCE”, is a two-act “long-form” improvised show in which a monologist tells personal stories that provides the inspiration for the resulting scenes by that night’s cast. Each Monday night the cast features some of the very best improvisers in Chicago alongside special guest celebrity monologuists.
Founded by Adam McKay (SNL, Anchorman, Talladega Nights), Dave Koechner (Anchorman, Thank You For Smoking, SNL) and Armando Diaz (iO alum & founder of The Magnet Theater in New York), THE ARMANDO DIAZ EXPERIENCE is iO’s longest running show and a landmark of comedy in Chicago.
