We are super excited to bring Colleen Doyle and Jason Shotts of Dummy down to teach and perform at The Hideout.
Jason Shotts and Colleen Doyle are a couple. They are also the long-form improv duo named Dummy. They’ve performed together at the iO Theater, the Chemically Imbalanced Comedy Theater and the Playground Theater. They’ve also performed for audiences at the Chicago Improv Festival, the Del Close Marathon (UCB New York) and the Out of Bounds Improv Festival (Austin, TX).
With a combined seventeen-some-odd years improv experience and more than two years of roommate experience, prepare for things to get funny. And personal. And super gross.
“Do real-life couples have an advantage when it comes to improv?…the answer appears to be yes. If you like unfussy character-based work it was worth the wait to see Doyle and Shotts. Throughout, the simple chemistry and truthfulness of Doyle and Shotts carried the evening.” – Chicago Tribune
“(Recommended) Doyle and Shotts invest their interactions with the excitement of discovery…it’s not hard to feel the love.” – Chicago Reader
“For years T.J. Jagodowski and Dave Pasquesi have reigned as Chicago’s must-see two-person improv team. After catching a recent set from Colleen Doyle and Jason Shotts at iO Theater, I think it’s safe to say there’s room on that improv pedestal for yet another pair of performers. ” – Chicago Tribune
Jason and Colleen are also teaching a four hour master class in improv while they’re here. Click here for more details.
Just Added: Local Austin duo The Amazon & The Milksop (Kaci Beeler and Curtis Luciani) will be opening for Dummy!
