Jason Marck

Although improv comedy methods vary in locations across the country and the world, the idea of people standing up on a stage and making something out of nothing started right here in the Windy City. 

Sam Wasson is the author of Improv Nation: How We Made A Great American Art, and joins the Morning Shift to talk about the wide-ranging impact of improv and how it got its start in Chicago’s Hull House.
