Professional therapists by day, they’ve been performing together as a comedy improv troupe since 2013, and were the winners of the 2015 Chicago Collider Improv competition. Their revue “Phobia Shmobia” won a standing ovation at the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, and they brought down the house at the International Society for the Study of Self Injury, where they performed at the happy hour. The troupe has performed at most of the major mental health conferences hosted in Chicago the past few years, and has also played to sold-out crowds at theaters and clubs in Chicago, Evanston, Oak Park and Skokie.
