Gillian Jacobs will host a Q&A on 'Don't Think Twice' tonight at the Music Box

Gillian Jacobs, one of the stars of Mike Birbiglia’s new film Don’t Think Twice, will host a live Q&A after the 7:30 screening at the Music Box. Jacobs is known best as a star of Community and the Netflix series Love, as well as a small but memorable role in HBO’s Girls.

Improv nerds and normal people alike have been loving Don’t Think Twice, which takes a hilarious, honest look at the world of up-and-coming comedians. The movie stars Birbiglia, Jacobs, Keegan-Michael Key and Chris Gethard as a group of friends and improvisers chasing their comedy dreams. The story resonates deeply with the Chicago improv community, as Birbiglia nails many “too real” moments aspiring comedians know well—both the soaring highs and the near-constant pangs of self-doubt.

Grab your tickets for tonight's talkback with Jacobs here.

If you’re inspired by Don’t Think Twice, you can catch excellent improv every night of the week at these comedy clubs all over the city. Or if you're feeling brave, you can even take a class yourself.
