Megan Johns

Meg Johns is a teacher, performer, writer, improviser, director who has lived in Chicago for 13 years. Whoa that’s over a decade. In addition to teaching at The Annoyance, she is also a member of The New Colony – a group of collaborators who devise original theater such as 5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche. Meg can be seen in The Annoyance’s Burlesque is More and That Maxwell Bitch, or improvising with WiseSnatch – her 3 lady improv dream team. If you just want to see her – like see her see her in person and not in a show because you are a person and so is she – check at the bar. Or ask her partner Ryan. Or her dog, Lola. Lola always knows.


Reviews of Megan Johns:

AP2 Student

“ I saw Megan Johns with Susan Messing prior to taking this class. I thought, WTF?  SHE is available?  I must take this class!  Thank God I did.  Megan’s class was insane.  Her incredible energy, humor and killer instruction made it an educational experience that dominated my thoughts during the week.   She leads with passion, energy and an uncompromising “your gonna get off that wall and do IT” standard which was everything that I needed. Her observations were direct and right on.  Added bonus was that she was so fucking funny in class responding to the barriers that I/we thought existed. Thank you Annoyance…thank you Megan Johns!  “
