Longest running Asian American Chicago comedy team.
24 years and counting.

Stir-Friday Night! is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit theater company that was founded in 1995. Based in Chicago, Illinois, we are one of the nation’s premier Asian-American comedy troupes. Having worked with such renowned companies such as The Second City and iO (formerly known as Improv Olympic), Stir-Friday Night! has become a fixture in Chicago’s comedy scene.

As an ensemble of Asian-American actors/writers, we travel the nation performing improv and sketch shows that educate all audiences, from an Asian- American perspective. Our diverse cast keeps audiences laughing while delivering messages with which they can identify.

Our alumni include Danny Pudi from Community, and Steven Yeun from The Walking Dead.
