*NOT the Centers for Disease Control
A group of comedians and dancers who combine sketch comedy,
physical comedy, and dance to tell stories in feel-good and visually-hilarious ways!
SKETCH COMEDY + DANCE = US!
...to tell you stories,
...to make you laugh,
...to bring you joy!
From T-Rexes to tutus, CDC will delight you with our goofiness!
We aim to have fun and funny in all we do!
If we're not laughing, why would you?!
Two T-Rexes walked onto a stage... and the audience went wild!
This TRex piece was a part of a Second City Training Center class performance that led to the creation of our comedy dance group. We spent over three months creating our first group piece ("Tiny Dancer" - complete with homemade hand puppets in pink tutus!) which debuted in June of 2015. Six months later, after hours and hours of creating new pieces, we performed a full-length show at the 2016 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival. And we haven't stopped since!
We are Comedy Dance Chicago!
Keep an eye out for our 5th Birthday Celebration!
We have performed to sold out crowds at iO Chicago, Stage 773, The Athenauem Theatre, and have appeared for four years at the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival. We have also performed as halftime entertainment for The Chicago Wildfire and the Windy City Rollers, and we once found ourselves on stage at House of Blues.
