Join us for a very special edition of Capital City Culture Club, featuring both Raleigh and Chicago improvisers. Special guest monologists Joe Bill and Jorin Garguilo, experienced improvisers from the Chicago improv scene, will regale the audience with short stories. The players will then bring the short stories to life in unique, heartfelt, and hilarious ways!

About Jorin Garguilo

Jorin Garguilo began improvising in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1991, and was a fixture and rehearsal director at ComedyWorx through 2004 before moving to Chicago. In Chicago, Jorin has performed, coached, and taught at theaters across the city, as well as traveling nationally and internationally to perform and teach. Currently, Jorin performs weekly with the Princeton New Money @$$ Clowns and teaches a session on ensemble work for the CIC Theater improv curriculum. Jorin is a  Millbrook Wildcat, a NCSU Wolfpack, and probably remembers when that fast food restaurant or self storage place was just a bunch of trees.

About Joe Bill

Joe Bill is widely regarded as one of the best teachers of Scenic and Comedic Improvisation in America today. He is one of the founding members of Annoyance Theater Chicago where, for 12 years, he performed in and/or directed more than 60 different shows. He is the creator and host of Story Chain, a virtual (and now sometimes live!), 90 minute, international story sharing event that he developed in 2020 during the Pandemic. He was the Director of Corporate Training at iO Chicago for 15 years, and started training and performing there in 1985. He was a Guest Artist in Residence at The Second City Training Center & Conservatory where he taught intensives in Duo Improvisation and Improvisation for Actors for 10 years. Joe is ½ of the original improvised Monoscene (we used to call it “Real Time”), BASSPROV with Mark Sutton, and has been touring all over the world teaching, directing, and improvising with a number of other amazing Duo Partners like Patti Stiles, Jill Bernard, Stacey Hallal, Lee White, David Razowsky, and Heather Urquart, ALL in different, original formats and styles. Joe has taught and performed on every continent on earth, except for Antarctica which still remains on his bucket list.
