Trophy Wife Holiday Bonanza - Dec 5th 10pm at iOWest

It's the holiday season again. And no matter what you celebrate, nothing is better than curling up next to a cozy fire with your favorite Trophy Wives. Fuzzy socks? Check. Hot Toddys? YES. Nuzzling? You bet your ass.

And it's going to be a chilly one this week, too. It might even dip down into the 40s. THE 40's, PEOPLE. We better huddle together to stay warm. There's no other alternative.

So throw on your best holiday sweater and join us this Thursday night at 10pm iOWest as we present our Intimate Holiday Special. We're sandwiched between The Reckoning and Drunkards and Dragons for maximum warmth. We'll bring the laughs. You bring the marshmallows and hot chocolate. It's gonna be festive as shit.

Trophy Wife with Haley Mancini 11.14.13 10pm at iOWest

We’re super-jazzed (“super-jazzed”, really? Who says that?) about this Thursday night’s show at iOWest. NOT ONLY because it might be our last show of 2013 (we don’t know our December schedule yet), but also because we’ll be joined by special Guest Wife Haley Mancini.

Haley’s a veteran of Boom Chicago, UCB, iO, and the Groundlings, as well as the co-host of The Morning After on Hulu. Check out her latest episode:

We’ll be sharing the hour once again with the always-excellent The Reckoning, so be sure to join us at 10pm this Thursday night at iOWest for a show we’re super-jazzed about.

Trophy Wife Congratulates The Improv Fest Ireland

Filed under: ,

Next month marks the inaugural Improv Fest Ireland in Dublin. Put together by our pal Neil Curran and friends, it’s a full week of shows, workshops, and storytelling featuring groups from around the world. Despite a full-half of our team being of Irish descent, we can’t make it, but we took a minute after a recent show to shout them out. Check it out:

Our first Thursday night show at iOWest – based on the suggestion machete – was a total blast. And surprisingly bloody. No idea why. Anyway, check it out:

Trophy Wife Graduates From Harold Night - Thurs 10/24 10pm

Filed under: ,

Trophy Wife & The Reckoning - Thurs. Oct 24th 10pm

Ever since our birth back in 2005, Trophy Wife has been a part of Harold Night at iOWest. For 8 years, we performed weekly on the Main Stage, first on Tuesdays at 11pm (ugh), then Wednesdays at 9, and finally Tuesdays at 9. And we had a blast the entire time, performing alongside other legendary teams such as DHT, USS Rock N' Roll, and most recently The Cartel.

But now it's finally time for us to graduate from Harold Night. To kick off the proverbial training wheels and totter down the road on our own. That's why we're moving to Thursday nights at 10pm. Our new monthly slot gives us more time (40 min!) to stretch out and explore. New forms. New night. New time. We're excited as hell.

For our first show, we've teamed with The Reckoning - the LA incarnation of the legendary iO Chicago Harold Team. Not only do we share similar paths, but we also share ex-Wife Eric Hunicutt - and plan to fight over him backstage.

So join us this Thursday at 10pm as we pry ourselves away from the bosom of Harold Night for the first time. There'll be tears, laughs, and beers (mostly laughs and beers).
