The Fairy Godmother of Comedy
Jillian is the LaZoom production manager and a force of nature who will ignite your inner comedic genius. She’s not just a teacher; she’s a whirlwind of laughter, wit, and questionable dance moves.
From Shakespeare to Side-Splitters:
Jillian’s artistic journey is a laugh riot. From gracing the stages of Chicago Shakespeare Theatre to School at Steppenwolf to touring internationally, she’s seen the world and made it chuckle. But her comedic calling wasn’t just in grand theatres; it pulsed in the heart of improv and sketch.
Second City? More like Second Nature
Institutions like Second City, UCB, IO, and The Annoyance Theatre are practically comedy royalty, and Jillian trained under their comedic monarchs –Tim Robinson, Sheldon Patinkin, the names that birthed legends like Bill Murray and Tina Fey. So, yeah, you could say comedy flows through her veins like laughing gas.
