Jason Chin wasnt very well known outside of the Chicago comedy scene but he meant a lot to the hundreds or thousands of lives he touched. Jason passed away at the age of 46 on January 8, 2015. Jason was a teacher, an improvisor, a director, a friend, a son and a brother. I bring in some Chicago improvisors that knew Jason to talk about some of their memories of him. Craig Cacowski, Joe Canale, Tim Baltz join me in the kitchen to remember a great man and a great nerd. We talk about his appearance on an early Cosby SHow episode, his start at iO in Chicago, his controversy with Star Wars, how he was an improvisor and director, we also talk about improv guru Del Close and what the connection between them and much more. I didnt know Jason very well. But I knew him and liked him very much. He was always good to me and kind and supportive. Rest in Peace, Jason. You are missed. Please listen, please share, please enjoy.
