An alumnus of Saturday Night Live and Chicago’s famed Second City, Jim Belushi is now bringing to the stage an improvised comedy sketch show featuring members of the Board of Comedy.

Describing the show, Belushi says, "We are not stand-up comedians. 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."

Jim Belushi

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.
