Rule of Three: One Suggestion to Rule Them All!

We’re excited to announce our new run at MCL Chicago with our friends Buffalo and Brouhaha!


Three veteran improv teams will take one audience suggestion at the top of the show, then put their own distinct form and style into it. They will create a vastly different, yet interwoven show which will be filled with music improv, puppets, and hyper play.

Rule of Three: One Suggestion to Rule Them All

Thursdays @7:30pm – BYOB
$7 General, $5 Student / Improv ID



Although grown women, Katie Dufresne and Stacey Smith have been improvising puppet musicals together for the past four years after meeting in Second City’s Musical Improv House Ensemble Infinite Sundaes. Outside of Brouhaha, you can see them perform sketch comedy together as Snooty Pageant. Together they’ve performed at Second City, iO, ComedySportz and Annoyance. In addition, they’ve traveled together to New York Musical Improv Festival, Boston Comedy Arts Festival as well as Chicago Improv Festival, Chicago Women’s Funny Festival and the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival.



Buffalo is a musical improv comedy ensemble. They attack the stage with solid harmonies and an absurd realism; exploring the glories and tragedies of relationships…in song! They will improvise thematic scenes, catchy tunes, and expressive choreography, arranging all the parts into a never-before-seen musical right before your eyes! Every genre-bending show is a brand new musical, opening and closing on the same night! The ensemble cast of Buffalo is Jonny Barret, Dan Dore, Ben Elliff, Patrick McDonald, Christine Smith, and Zack Shornick.
