For 25 years, Chicago improv comedian Jimmy Carrane honed his skills in the wide world of comedy. And worked with some of the biggest names who got their start in--or rolled through--Chicago.
He played small rolls in television and film and for quite some time; and could be found in public radio-land on WBEZ’s Eight Forty-Eight. Carrane interviewed celebrities as the host of his own “show-within-a-show,” Studio 312.
Carrane channeled his chops to teach comedy and recently combined all of his passions for stage and performance in a new stage show, Improv Nerd with Jimmy Carrane. The weekly show runs on Sundays through Nov. 27 at Stage 773, on West Belmont.
