Vaccines are rolling out, the weather is getting better, and at some point in the future, theaters are going to reopen. Might be June, might be December, but it's coming! Sharpen your skills and meet other performers with The Lantern Comedy Collective.


Reunite your team for a virtual improv rehearsal! Coaches like Phylicia McLeod (Matt Damon Improv) and Laurel Krabacher (Second City E.T.C.) are here for a 90-minute Zoom-friendly rehearsal! Email us a to get it scheduled.

The Lantern Comedy Collective is a group of Chicago comedy veterans who want to create a space for anyone who loves comedy. With a focus on inclusion and transparency, we want to give all creative people the opportunity to work and grow with us. We're starting with online workshops to get back into the swing of things and raise money for future projects. And when it's safe to leave the digital space, we'll start doing shows in real life.

The future of the world is so up in the air - not to mention the future of Chicago comedy. The Lantern will be there for whatever comes next, always building and always evolving. If this sounds up your alley, let us know! Take a class, drop a suggestion or join our mailing list. And stay tuned - more is always on the way.
