Chicago improv team: Ben Franklin Presents

The seven-person ensemble Ben Franklin Presents presents audiences with a never-before-told version of history through long-form improv. After taking a suggestion of a historical figure or event, Ben Franklin Present creates a parallel universe where facts are subject to change based on characters, emotion and storytelling. What if the Egyptians built the first food pyramids? What if a high school pep band started the Million Man March? Who the hell is Guy Fawkes? Ben Franklin Presents will show you. Ben Franklin Presents has performed at Studio Be, The Playground Theater and The Upstairs Gallery in addition to producing their own monthly variety show (Ben Franklin Presents PRESENTS Comedy Show), sharing a bill with some of the best upcoming improv teams, stand-ups, storytellers and musicians in Chicago.
