Brian McCann brings his ‘Leisure Hour’ back to iO Theater

SHARE Brian McCann brings his ‘Leisure Hour’ back to iO Theater

After a short but successful iO Theater outing on its opening weekend in late August, former Conan O’Brien writer and Chicago improv alum Brian McCann will reprise his one-man show “Brian McCann’s Leisure Hour” Oct. 8-11 and Oct. 15-18 at iO Theater’s palatial new venue on N. Kingsbury.

Don’t know who McCann is? Maybe you should. The guy’s only won a Prime Time Emmy and half a dozen Writer’s Guild Awards. Besides O’Brien, he’s also worked with Dana Carvey and he produced FXX’s now cancelled “Totally Biased with Kamau Bell.”

Here’s the iO show schedule. Stay tuned to for more with McCann in the coming weeks.
