Created by famed Chicago theatrical director Mick Napier, Trigger Happy is a completely unique presentation of Chicago’s signature long-form improvisation, combining elements of magic and comedy to create a theatrical avant-garde experience that quite literally cannot be imitated by any other cast in the world. Over the course of years, this cast has developed a literal coded language, hidden within their improvised scenes, that cause things to happen all together - as if by magic!
No, really - Mick Napier is also a renowned cardician and mentalist, who has performed a code-act with his on-stage partner and off-stage wife, Jennifer Estlin.
Mick, Jen, and the cast will take questions and demonstrate their unique code exclusively for SAM 3 Members.
