All Star BAT with Joe Bill:

Improv comedy in the dark with some of Chicago's finest and funniest improvisers as put together by improv legend Joe Bill, who is also the creator of this form. The Bat is a famous improv long form in which the entire show is a swirling aural soundscape performed by the cast with the venue's lights off (or very dimmed). The Bat is performed as a normal Harold except that there are no visual or movement cues to signal edits, behavior or other actions by the performers. Current improvisers playing in the All Star Bat performance include Joe Bill, Chris Day, Bumper Carroll, Ryan Archibald, Jaime Moyer, and Amanda Blake Davis.
