Lonely Planet review

iO launched the careers of Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert, along with a host of other well-known comics (many cross over from iO to Second City before hitting it big). The bawdy shows hinge entirely on audience suggestions and each turn can run 40 minutes or longer. Shows on Wednesday and Sunday are usually just $5.

If you’re thoroughly motivated by what you see, iO offers a range of comedy and improv courses to suit every budget. The theater is scheduled to move to new, larger digs at 1501 N Kingsbury St (in Lincoln Park) in late 2014.
