An alumnus of Saturday Night Live and Chicago's famed Second City, Jim Belushi has brought together a talented group of classically trained professional improvisers known as the Board of Comedy for a night of rambunctious, rumbling laughter. Accompanying Belushi will be Larry Joe Campbell, Joshua Funk, and Megan Grano, all of whom tour regularly nationwide.
Belushi starred on the ABC hit comedy sitcom According to Jim. He also served as the show's executive producer, music composer, and director. Belushi has appeared in over 75 movies including The Whole Truth, Red Heat, About Last Night, The Principal, and K-9. He also sings, dances, and plays harmonica in the Blues Brothers with Dan Aykroyd and with his own band, The Sacred Hearts.
The Board of Comedy reunites Belushi with Campbell, who is known for his role as Andy on According to Jim. In a Q&A provided by the Board of Comedy, Belushi said Campbell is "the funniest man I know and he is effortless on stage to work with. I adore him. He makes me cry on stage, he's so funny."
Campbell has also appeared in R.I.P.D., Hall Pass, and Weeds. Funk is an award-winning director whose credits include Key and Peele, Reno 911, Wild n' Out, and The Informant. Grano's TV and film credits include Weeds, Parks and Recreation, Hot in Cleveland, and Bridesmaids.
Jim Belushi and the Board of Comedy features each improviser's humor in a high-energy, interactive setting. As they say in improv, you've never seen this show before, and you will never see it again.
