Mike Johnson was born and raised in Chicago. He currently is a member of Chicago's ComedySportz Theater and perfoms regularly at iO Theater with Sears Tower, Dinner Bell and Felt.
Adal Rifai has been improvising in Chicago since 2006. While having done many shows at both Second City and The Annoyance you can see Adal weekly at iO with the house team Revolver and with Whirled News Tonight. He has performed, taught and coached teams all over the U.S. and currently is coaching Sears Tower and teaching at iO. He also heads up the coaching and incubator programs at the Playground Theater in Chicago and performs and tours with the independent team Pudding-Thank-You. Adal is delighted to play in Nashville.
