With more than 30 years of experience and an alumnus of "Saturday Night Live" and Chicago's famed "Second City," Jim Belushi is now bringing to the Mayo Performing Arts Center stage an improvised comedy sketch show featuring members of the Chicago Board of Comedy. The performance takes place on Saturday, March 29 at 8 p.m., Tickets are $39 to $69.

"We are not stand-up comedians," Belushi said. "Our show is not a passive, sit-back-and-watch experience. Most of the fun we have on stage comes from our inclusion of the audience — we get suggestions from them to begin each scene we perform, and in certain instances, bring them on stage with us to add to our performance. It's less a 'show' and more a party. At least it feels like one to me. This group of actors brings me right back to how I started out in comedy — maybe that's why we have so much fun doing it."

Belushi starred on the ABC hit comedy "According to Jim," on which he also served as executive producer, music composer and director.

After wrapping 182 episodes for its eighth and final season, the family favorite series also hit a milestone when it launched into off-net syndication in 2007.

Accompanying Belushi are Robert Belushi, Larry Joe Campbell ("According to Jim"), Jon Barinholtz and Brad Morris, all of whom are classically trained professional improvisers who tour regularly nationwide. (cast subject to change).

The Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South St. in Morristown. For more information or tickets contact the box office at 973-539-8008 or mayoarts.org.
