What if “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Jackson Pollock, and “Con Air” had a baby, and that baby could do a rockin’ comedy show for your college?
Octavarius is the hottest comedy group in Chicago: named #1 Improv Sketch Group in the Chicago Reader Reader’s Poll two years in a row and headlining the 2011 Chicago Improv Festival.
“Chicago’s young and hip improv ensemble” – The Huffington Post
“Totally infectious… More improv shows should be this much fun.” – Time Out Chicago, a Critic’s Pick.
Octavarius’ critically acclaimed, completely unique blend of improvisation, music, sketch comedy and audience interaction makes their high-octane show fun and accessible for everyone, no matter how much live comedy they’ve seen before.
The cast of Octavarius has been working together in different combinations for over 8 years, officially combining forces in 2009 to form Octavarius under the slogan, “Fun Is Everywhere.” Even if you haven’t caught one of their live shows in Chicago or on tour, you may have seen one of their web series, which have been featured on WGN, FOX and CBS, and on the homepages of MSN, The Huffington Post, The Daily What and many more.
8 of the performers met at Illinois State University, where they performed in ISU’s Improv Mafia together. After graduating and training at the legendary comedy schools, The Second City and iO, the performers decided it was time they form their own group and bring their unique style to the stage.
“Fun Is Everywhere” is more than a mantra. It’s a way of life. Octavarius will take any topic and make it accessible, fun and integrated into the show. If you’d like a show with custom material about your school or about a specific topic (educational or not), just let them know and they’ll bring that to life on stage too.
