Pick of the Week: Chicago Improv Festival Presents: 3 Peat, Joan and Ro at Second City e.t.c (April 21, 2015)

3 Peat is a Chicago team from the iO Theatre. Their show consists of an improved monologue that inspires a long form improv piece.

Joan and Ro are characters created by Second City Alums Holly Laurent and Katie Rich. The characters are an elderly couple of lifelong friends from New York. According to Laurent, “Joan and Ro are wise, they are offensive, they are inappropriate, and they are over it. But goddamn it, do they love each other.” [From Joan and Ro reunite (and it feels so good) in the Chicago Reader]. Holly and Katie were in three Second City revues together: Southside of Heaven, Who Do We Think We Are?, and Let Them Eat Chaos.
