WSR Comedy Troupe is Back and Bringing All the Laughs





WSR Comedy has been around for a little while, so if you like to laugh, prepare for the best news you’ve heard all week.

WS Rep Comedy Troupe has been around, in one form or another, since Fall of 2012. And they’ve been bringing the laughs even stronger since then.

Originally performing after the ever popular and much loved Lucy’s Comedy Café, held with intimate onstage seating, around December of 2013 the troupe moved into what is now the café space at Raue Center.

WSR Comedy is filled with some of the most quick-witted improv comedians, and brilliant sketch writers, all working to crank out the laughs for just $10.

The Williams Street Repertory’s Comedy program is accredited by Second City, in Chicago, and trains with famous techniques out of the best improv classes across America— whether Second City or UCB, there’s all kinds of funny.

Many members of the WSR Comedy Troupe even come from prestigious acting and improvisational comedy backgrounds: whether Second City, Carthage College, or the former Theatre Underground; these folks know how to make funny happen.

They currently perform in Raue Center’s Café every 3rd Thursday at 8:00p. The next WSR Comedy night is June 22, right here in downtown Crystal Lake (26 N. Williams Street).
