Messing with Our Marriage - POSTPONED!

*** UPDATE***

This show has been postponed. Unfortunately, Susan hit a patch of ice, fell, and broke her ankle. The sweet woman that she is, called to apologize to us. Like it was her fault. Hilarious. Obviously, we just want Susan to get healthy and we'll find another time to play. She's been gracious enough to give us priority when she gets back to the stage, so we'll let you know when our show gets rescheduled, posting it here the moment we find out. Thanks everyone for your understanding.

This Thursday, The Union will have the privilege of playing with improv guru Susan Messing in her weekly show "Messing with a Friend." That's right, Messing with The Union! Thursday 1/28 at 10:30pm at The Annoyance Theater.

Susan was one of our first improv teachers in Chicago and years later, we were thrilled to be invited to get on stage with her. She is a crazy, smart, dirty mouthed performer and we can't wait to have a blast with her.

The Chicago Tribune writes that Messing with a Friend is "...the hottest improv show in town and costs a mere five bucks. Assertive, vulnerable, eloquent, acerbic and ---most important---complicated, Messing is a colossal talent."

Hope you can make it!

The Union hits the ground running in 2010!

Hey friends - There will be two great chances to see The Union right off the bat in 2010.

First, we are very excited that we were selected to appear at the world famous Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival. Our show is on Sunday, January 17th at 2:30pm and all shows take place at the Chicago Theater Building. We'll be performing a "Best Of' show comprised of some of our favorite sketches from the past year or so.

Next we'll be improvising with the wonderful, hilarious, and filthy Susan Messing in her signature show at The Annoyance Theater called "Messing With A Friend". Each Thursday night at 10:30pm, Susan welcomes a guest or two to join her on stage for an unscripted romp and we're thrilled to be one of her first guests of the new year, on January 28th.

Hope to see you at one or both of these shows!

The Union will be performing in KC!

Did you miss out on seeing The Union - A Very Civil War at Donny's Skybox because you "don't live in Chicago"? I know we may have said to some of you, "Oh well, sucks to be you" but now it turns out you actually have another chance to catch the fun.

The Union will be performing a one-night only show in Kansas City on Friday November 27th at 8pm at the Westport Coffeehouse. Tickets are available NOW! Make reservations by calling 816-678-8886. This show is very likely to sell out, so if you wait too long, and don't get tickets, don't blame us! We told you about it.

As a special bonus (as if one was needed) check out all the ridiculous fun that will be had that night:

- improv by Loaded Dice (with special guest Corey Rittmaster)
- improv by Spite (with special guests Monique Madrid and Gillian Bellinger)
- sketch comedy by us, The Union

All this for the stupid low price of $8, $5 for students. If you live in Kansas City and will be around for Thanksgiving and you don't come see this show, you're an idiot.

Also, don't forget: our last show of the run "A Very Civil War" is this Thursday 10/8 at 10:30pm at Second City's Donny's Skybox.

See you there!
