Trophy Wife Holiday Bonanza - Dec 5th 10pm at iOWest

It's the holiday season again. And no matter what you celebrate, nothing is better than curling up next to a cozy fire with your favorite Trophy Wives. Fuzzy socks? Check. Hot Toddys? YES. Nuzzling? You bet your ass.

And it's going to be a chilly one this week, too. It might even dip down into the 40s. THE 40's, PEOPLE. We better huddle together to stay warm. There's no other alternative.

So throw on your best holiday sweater and join us this Thursday night at 10pm iOWest as we present our Intimate Holiday Special. We're sandwiched between The Reckoning and Drunkards and Dragons for maximum warmth. We'll bring the laughs. You bring the marshmallows and hot chocolate. It's gonna be festive as shit.

Trophy Wife with Haley Mancini 11.14.13 10pm at iOWest

We’re super-jazzed (“super-jazzed”, really? Who says that?) about this Thursday night’s show at iOWest. NOT ONLY because it might be our last show of 2013 (we don’t know our December schedule yet), but also because we’ll be joined by special Guest Wife Haley Mancini.

Haley’s a veteran of Boom Chicago, UCB, iO, and the Groundlings, as well as the co-host of The Morning After on Hulu. Check out her latest episode:

We’ll be sharing the hour once again with the always-excellent The Reckoning, so be sure to join us at 10pm this Thursday night at iOWest for a show we’re super-jazzed about.

Next month marks the inaugural Improv Fest Ireland in Dublin. Put together by our pal Neil Curran and friends, it’s a full week of shows, workshops, and storytelling featuring groups from around the world. Despite a full-half of our team being of Irish descent, we can’t make it, but we took a minute after a recent show to shout them out. Check it out:
