Deep dish featuring Brian Finkelstein 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: Brian Finkelstein, Dan Bakkedahl, Joe Canale, Rob Janas, Jill Benjamin, Josh Meyers, Brian Shorthall, and more!
