"Phenomenal! A real joy to watch" - TJ Jagodowski (TJ & Dave), iO Chicago
I'm pleased to announce the first international guest act of 2018, Chris Fair and "The Laser Comedy Show".
The Laser Comedy Show is a one of a kind, story telling experience. Performing artist Chris Fair uses Laser Reactive Technology to draw characters and scenery with a cinematic sense on a glow in the dark screen, which the lines fade in moments like a high tech etch-a-sketch. Chris brings the characters to life by voicing them over, creating sound effects, music and continually drawing action to turn a 2-D screen into a 3-D world.
With support from Neil+1 and followed by an improv jam.
Chris has been a visual artist all of his life, studied art and film at Northern Illinois University and has been performing stand up, improv and sketch comedy since 2004. He has been developing the Laser Comedy Show since early 2011 when his brother introduced him to the technology with his laser reactive Clothing company, Hyphy Color. Chris has studied at Chicago’s Notorious Second City, iO, Annoyance, ComedySportz theaters and has performed his signature show coast to coast at improv and comedy festivals.
Neil +1 is a unique improvised theatre show starring Neil Curran and a random audience member. Completely unplanned and improvised, an audience member is invited up on stage and becomes a leading performer in the show! There are no tricks, plants or gimmicks; everything is made up on the spot. What unfolds is a journey into an alternative view of the life of the audience member, through character, scenes and narrative. Often hilarious and always touching, witness improv and theatre like you have never seen it before!
“Funny, engaging, and mind-blowingly skilful. Neil Curran creates a wonderful improvised story and brings an audience member along for the ride. One of the highlights of this years’ festival”
