Deep Dish featuring Neal Brennan
Deep Dish combines the art of stand-up comedy and long form improvisation. A celebrity comedian takes a single audience suggestion and does a series of improvised monologues based on true stories from their lives. A group of improvisers then does a series of kick-ass improvised sketches based on these monologues. The Deep Dish performers are comedy veterans hailing with from I.O. West, UCB, and Second City Chicago, and have many film and TV credits under their belts. Featuring: Neal Brennan, Joe Canale, Josh Meyers, Ike Barinholtz, Rob Janas, Kevin Fleming, Dan Bakkedahl, and Jean Villapique, Bob Dassie, and Molly Erdman
