Improvised Shakespeare Co.

We’ve just put the finishing touches on some work for Chicago’s acclaimed improv group, The Improvised Shakespeare Company.  (Full disclosure: Very Clever’s own Nick Wagner is a member of the ISC.) We think it turned out very well.  The ISC is putting a new website together, and it’s likely that the video will be featured there in some form or another, but in the meantime, here it is!

In light of our past work, we thought we’d contribute to the current internet meme:
