fackBUDDIES: Everybody needs a fackBUDDY
fackBUDDIES-- a one-night commitment-- is a long-form show featuring veteran improviser Dina Facklis (where we get the “fack”), showcases a different guest each week. While some of these guests have been around the improvisorial block, get ready to also see some newbies that know their stuff. Fun fact: Dina makes it a point to never ask an entitled douchebag to play with her.
READER RECOMMENDED: “…with Fackbuddies, her new show with a different improv vet as guest each week, Facklis once again delivers delicious comedic joy…”
fackBUDDIES’ mission statement: We don’t have a mission…we want to end up where we’re supposed to end up and that’s how we like it.
Dina Facklis has been doing improvisation for a little over 20 years. She has toured with and directed for The Second City, is the founder of iO’s acclaimed ensemble Virgin Daiquiri, and is the creative director of The Chicago Improv Den. In 2011, Dina was named iO’s improviser of the year.
