Storyline

Something Out of Nothing follows a group of at-risk teenagers as they learn about improv comedy through an after school arts program in Chicago, Illinois. They succeed and struggle during the summer program that culminates in a show. The documentary examines how race and comedy relate to each other and how youth see race in Chicago. By putting a spotlight on misconceptions about inner city Chicago youth, the general public sees through their eyes the hopes, dreams and fears sometimes lost in the shuffle by the national media landscape. Written by Josh da Silva

'Improvisation' is one of my favorite words. When things don't go as planned, what do you do?... Improvise. Something Out of Nothing demonstrates how effective improvisational comedy can be in helping young people constructively work through matters that confront them in their daily lives. It is clearly apparent that each young adult in this documentary benefits immensely from this after-school classroom experience, and you can tell from their joyful expressions that it is a rewarding experience for them, as well. Overall, a classroom experience like this can have an immeasurable effect on young adults, and Something Out of Nothing did a great job of emboldening that message.
