The team is a duo featuring Chris Madden and Mike Laderman. We were fellow students at ImprovBoston's comedy school and have performed together on many other projects. The two of us look so similar that many people confuse us for one another on a daily basis. Despite the fact that we have a large age difference and are completely unrelated. We decided to leverage that fact to artistic ends and create a show where the characters are the only constant.
Lady Mars stars two veteran improvisers Nicky Margolis and Claudia Martinez. Together they explore what happens when a Jew and a Mexican walk into an improv theater. Nicky is an alum of The Second City’s Etc stage and Touring Company. Claudia is an alum of The Second City’s Brown Co and one of Metro Mix’s “Five to See.” Both have performed in countless improv and sketch shows around the city and nation –including Chicago’s Sketch Fest and TBS’s Just for Laughs Festival. Lady Mars brings together Nicky and Claudia’s unique perspectives and characters which take the audience into a strange, but oddly familiar reality.
