About JIM BELUSHI & CHICAGO BOARD OF COMEDY

People don’t want to just come see a comedy show; they want to laugh until it hurts. “We are not stand-up comedians,” says Jim Belushi. “Our show is not a passive, sit-back-and-watch experience. Most of the fun we have on stage comes from our inclusion of the audience. We get suggestions from them to begin each scene we perform, and in certain instances, bring them on-stage with us to add to our performance. It’s less a ‘show’ and more a party.” This is one comedy show you don’t want to miss!

Belushi starred on the ABC hit comedy “According to Jim,” on which he also served as executive producer, music composer and director.  A favorite of film, television and stage audiences, Belushi is one of the great leading character actors equally at home in drama and comedy, and a gifted performer who can also hold a room as front man of a rhythm and blues band.  

Accompanying Belushi are Robert Belushi, Larry Joe Campbell, Jon Barinholtz and Brad Morris all of whom are classically trained professional improvisers who tour regularly nationwide.

STUFFED AND UNSTRUNG is a wild romp in which the skilled art of puppetry and spontaneous comedy collide. Unpredictable and irreverent, it’s never the same show twice. Expert puppeteers create twisted scenes and songs on the fly, as suggestions from the audience prompt the improvised storylines unfolding on stage. This production delivers “two shows in one” as the hilarious puppet action is projected live on large screens flanking the stage, while the puppeteers race around below – displaying their skills in full view of the audience. With live musical accompaniment and Bristow as host, STUFFED AND UNSTRUNG boasts a cast of six world-class puppeteers in an uninhibited live puppet performance, as never seen before.
