Mick Napier
Artistic Director

Under the guidance of Artistic Director Mick Napier, The Annoyance also provides excellent quality training in improvisation. Based on Napier’s book Improvise. Scene From the Inside Out, the Annoyance philosophy focuses on the individual, giving students feedback and support to allow them to find and enhance their personal point of view and creative voice.

About The Annoyance

For 25 years, The Annoyance Theatre has created some of Chicago’s finest comedy. Home of the longest running musical Co-ed Prison Sluts, The Annoyance uses improvisation to create new and original plays, musicals, sketch-comedy and more in a vibrant, uncensored atmosphere.

All are welcome at The Annoyance (over the age of 14), and while there, they may use the bathroom that fits their gender identity.
