Jeff Sweet

Award-winning playwright Jeffrey Sweet drops names and tells all in You Only Shoot the Ones You Love, in which he weaves an anecdotal, often first-hand history of improvisation comedy in the 20th century.  The 75-minute show transports audiences from Chicago to New York to Toronto to Russia to London and back again, during which time Sweet tells artfully constructed stories about growing up in a world of improv comedy and examines how anti-Semitism in Russia and Eastern Europe led to a comedy renaissance in America and gave birth to comedy greats like Del Close, Mike Nichols, Elaine May, Paul Sills, Lenny Bruce, Mel Brooks, John Belushi, John Candy, Chris Farley...(well, you get the idea). 

It's part improv history lesson and part highly relatable stories about finding your community in those around you and living the life you're meant to live.
