    Chicago Improv Festival is a comedy best bet
    One way to approach the Chicago Improv Festival, in which 200-plus troupes descend on the city to perform, is to think of blackjack. Blackjack, like all games of chance, and like improvised comedy, is no sure thing. Every show is a new hand, and success...
