A comedy extravaganza performed by Michael Patrick O'Brien (Saturday Night Live writer) and Lyndsay Nicole Hailey (ImprovOlympic). The show consists of sketches, solo performance, and improvisation from these veterans of the Chicago comedy scene. Part of Piccolo Fringe at Piccolo Spoleto Festival.

Did he come up with the Smash Mouth sketch?
Chicago comedy veterans Michael "Pat" O'Brien (a Reckoning alum, previous Piccolo Fringe performer, and current Saturday Night Live writer) and Lyndsay Nicole Hailey (of iO Theater), get together for this new show.

Best of both worlds
The act is composed of sketch and improvised comedy. You'll be able to clearly recognize the difference between the two styles as O'Brien and Hailey act out their narrative.

Don't get your hopes up
The duo is a couple on and off the stage. Between make-out sessions, they realized that the things they joke about privately could make for great comedic material publicly. The trust of a relationship is similar to the trust between comedy partners; let's just hope that any intense arguments they may have on stage are just part of the act.
