Cheetara Are a Hit

World.jpgMany say that the Chicago Improv scene is a "boys club"; that it's tough being a woman improviser in this city. Some say you need improv balls of steel to make it and play with the big boys. Well, last night Cheetara showed us their steel balls and beat another Chicago team, Team Smartypants, in the World Series of Pop Culture on VH1. Cheetara, made up of three Chicago improvisers, giggled their way to a win and were the picture of team spirit, cheering each other up from the audience.

Feel like seeing more of these ladies? Get your butt out to Comedysportz, The Playground or I.O, and see these women in their element.

Awesome job, Cheetara; we're sending out good vibes for the next round.
