Laughs Unlocked benefit show—Tues., April 5

Laughs Unlocked banner

Prison is no laughing matter—but we’ll make an exception this time because some of the best improvisors in Chicago are throwing us a benefit!

In this two-act show they’ll create scenes based on stories from Dionna Griffin-Irons. Griffin-Irons, who was formerly incarcerated, is a writer, alumna of Second City, and current Director of Diversity and Inclusion at the legendary comedy theatre.

Cast: Dionna Griffin-Irons, Shantira Jackson, T.J. Jagodowski, Brett Lyons, Beth Melewski (one of our volunteers!), Nnamdi Ngwe, Adam Peacock, Dewayne Perkins, Pat Reidy, Susan Salvi, Jim Scheidhauer, Kevin Sciretta, Robyn Scott, Rebecca Sohn and Rich Sohn
Musical direction: Julie B. Nichols

100% of the proceeds will go to Chicago Books to Women in Prison and tickets are on sale now at theannoyance.com. Don’t miss it!
