Unlikely Company, comprised of six Chicago comedians (Di Billick, Liam Gallogly, Ryan Kappmeyer, Brian Morrow, Kate Nixon, and Mollie Rehner) has become the newest resident company in the Box Theatre at Stage 773. Formed in 2013 Unlikely Company focuses on exposing the comedic seediness of everyday life, combining eclectic music and sketch comedy with intelligence, vulgarity, and candor. Their material ranges from heartfelt to farcical.
“The ride you take in an Unlikely Company show is a wonderful rollercoaster,” says Brian Posen, Creative Director. “They can transition from choreographed musical comedy into an absurdist piece, into meta-theatre. Their comedy, dedication and growth over the past three years makes them a perfect fit for Stage 773.”
Unlikely Company’s residency will start this July with a four week, Friday night run of a new summer show directed by Posen.
