Let’s Get Serious with Batterymouth

Dave Urlakis and Zack Whittington are Batterymouth, a two-person group that does long-form improv.

They just began a run of shows at Second City’s de Maat Theatre in Chicago, IL.

We discuss the high stakes of doing long-form improv, question iO’s name and see how well they really know each other.
