Improvised Star Trek
For ten years Improvised Star Trek explored the final frontier of comedy by turning Star Trek into an improv office comedy. Taking suggestions submitted on Twitter and Facebook, the cast (featuring some of Chicago’s top improvisors) creates a fully improvised episode detailing the adventures of the USS Sisyphus, a less enterprising starship. New episodes are posted every other week. Improvised Star Trek is a fan production. Star Trek is property of CBS.

Lacky & Lorem go for the record.


Griffen Eckstein as Lt(ish) Leopold Lackey

Nick Wagner as Lt. Ch'arles Lorem

Improvised as a warmup on March 15, 2015 from a suggestion by Brian Sebby.

Thanks this week to Cassrain, AudioDramaNut and Georgetheavguy for new iTunes reviews!
We also have a project underway where you can do us a favor just by relistening to old episodes.  If you look at our current episode descriptions they all include a cast list, including all the various aliens and ensigns and we play. We're hoping to get lists for all of our old episodes so that you can just look at the episode description to immediately see if Greg, or Lackey or Smelt make an appearance. If you go to our website you can see instructions on how to help. You can do one episode or many, but everyone who chips in will get exclusive access to a special unproduced episode of Improvised Star Trek.
