Thank You and Goodbye

Hello VAMP Fans, Friends, and Family,

It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the dissolution of VAMP Chicago LLC. Unforeseen circumstance arose during the planning of our transition away from MCL Chicago, and after much discussion the ownership resolved that the best course of action is to dissolve the company.

Throughout our four year run we had 318 performances and an infinite number of laughs. Everyone in VAMP from the ensemble to the musicians to the technical artists want to thank you all for watching us grow from Thursday nights at 10PM to Chicago's "Best Sketch/Improv Troupe." We couldn't have done it without you and your support along the way.

One final time we raise a glass to you. You meant so much to us. Thank you.


VAMP Chicago

PS: Here are the actual lyrics to 'Michael McDonald Moments'

"What A Fool Believes" by The Doobie Brothers

"He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool don't see
Trying hard to recreate
What had yet to be created"

Let's VAMP!

VAMP is a showcase of Chicago’s strongest musical comedy talent. The show features a rotating cast of 16 actors and nine musicians who produce the best music comedy in Chicago. Seeing a VAMP Chicago show is like seeing “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” but everyone is Wayne Brady.
