The Improvised Shakespeare Company, the funniest and most critically acclaimed theatrical Improv troupe in the country, is coming to LARGO. The ISC plays regularly to sold-out crowds in NYC Off-Broadway, and was recently one of the big hits of UCB’s Del Close marathon where they played to a standing room only crowd of 700+ people. The ISC tours nationally and internationally at Performing Arts Centers and has been featured at Montreal's Just for Laughs, Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival, SF Sketchfest, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and most recently at Outside Lands in San Francisco where Sir Patrick Stewart performed with them as a special guest. The ISC has been named Chicago's best Improv group by both the Chicago Reader and the Chicago Examiner and has received a New York Nightlife Award for "Best Comedic Performance by a Group".
