Twitter Handle: @tedtremper

Based in Chicago, Ted Tremper is a filmmaker and mainstay of the Chi's improv scene. In addition to his work on stages across the Windy City, Tremper has produced two phenomenal web projects recently. Shrink, which took Best Comedy Pilot at NYTVF (New York Television Festival) last year and Break-Ups, which has received some award attention as well.

Though Tremper's work is largely improvised, there's a darkness and honesty to the comedy he produces. With the choice of subjects like a psychologist in training and couples ending their relationships, it is clear that Tremper doesn't shy away from emotional truth in favor of jokes. Check out both projects right away.
