The Katydids are a six member ensemble of some of Chicago’s best up-and-coming performers whose names all happen to be derived from Katherine. In addition to improv and sketch comedy, they are known for creating and producing successful short videos, some of which have been featured on such sites as The Huffington Post, MTV, Perez Hilton, Smosh, Cosmopolitan, Italy’s Vanity Fair, College Humor and The Chicago Sun Times. They are also actors, writers and executive producers of the popular web series TEACHERS. Collectively, the women have performed for The Second City Touring Company, Broadway in Chicago, and will perform at TBS Just For Laughs Chicago this summer. In addition to theaters throughout Chicago, The Katydids have appeared at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City and at iO West in Los Angeles. They are based out of iO Chicago (formerly Improv Olympic) and their improv is coached by The Second City Mainstage alumnus Anthony LeBlanc.
All talent and shows are scheduled to appear and subject to change.
