The theatre hosted a two-week stay of the duo Oct. 27-Nov. 6, after the evening performances of Orson's Shadow. TJ and Dave are T.J. Jagodowski and Dave Pasquesi. They call their form of improv "insta-plays" and have been a popular attraction at the ImprovOlympic Cabaret in Chicago for the past three years. The two men met at the 2002 Chicago Improv Festival. Jagodowski is a veteran of Second City's Mainstage Company. Pasquesi is also a Second City veteran, and recently starred as Ricky Roma in Steppenwolf's 2002 revival of Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross. He also appears in the Comedy Central series "Strangers with Candy."
