Cool Jacket has been performing long form improv in Chicago and across the country for almost two years now. The members of Cool Jacket (Michael Finn, Eli Mandel, Harrison George) have trained/performed with iO, The Playground, The Annoyance, The Second City, CIC and are a house team at the Upstairs Gallery. Every show is begun by asking what group or organization the three of us might be members of. We then create, explore and deconstruct a world ripe with characters who are evil, good, beautiful, stupid, childish, selfish, caring, power-hungry and pure. All of whom are trying to understand a world over which they have no control. like them.
Scott Whitehair is a master storyteller making a name for himself in Chicago and all over the great USofA. He produces This Much Is True, Story Lab and Do Not Submit. Having worked with Scott on my first personal storytelling through Story Lab, I can tell you that he is a great supporter of new tellers and does the work with humor and kindness.
