with Craig Uhilr
Saturday 1:00pm at The Village Theatre
In this workshop we will explore informational group game work. We will explore group game theory and play non-scenic, informational games that can be used as openings and in the ‘game slots’ of a Harold or any long form. Uhlir's approach to teaching group games is a favorite of students and teams at iO Chicago.
Craig Uhlir was born and raised in Chicago, in the USA. After completing his training at Chicago’s big three improvisational schools: Second City, improvOlympics, and the Annoyance back in the 90's, Craig began playing with Harold teams Deep Schwa and Vahalla. He also played at ComedySportz Chicago for 4 years doing short form improv. He toured with the Second City National Touring Company going around the world and then performed in Second City Las Vegas at the Flamingo hotel for 3 years. These days Craig teaches at iO (formerly improvOlympics) and The Second City. He still performs every Sunday night in Deep Schwa at iO, Chicago’s longest running Harold team. Craig has been playing for over 20 years and teaching since the turn of the century. I would say Craig’s specialty is group work and teaching others how to put the fun in funny.
