USS Sisyphus: new episode every week

I'm part of a Chicago comedy group that improvises and records a new episode set in the TNG/DS9 era every week. We take our titles suggestions from twitter and facebook, record an episode, and put it on itunes the following week with sound effects and music.

If this sounds like something you'd enjoy, check us out:

or suggest a title the next time we record: www.facebook.com/improvisedstartrek

Are you doing this for fun, or are you professionals?

We're all professional improvisors in Chicago(to varying degrees-most of us still have day jobs) but this is a side project from our theater work, and mostly for fun.

Re: USS Sisyphus: new episode every week

OK.... I have a separate area for Pro Comedies and Parodies... but I'm going to classify you under Fan Audio since you guys still have day jobs... and since some of the fan film people do work as show business professionals full time IN their day jobs, they just aren't paid for the fan Trek. You are here: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/247.html (alphbetical order). You are in yellow because comedies are yellow, dramas are in rust.

Fantastic, thanks!

I'll defer to your classification system, but just to complicate the pro/fan question the producing the podcast are professional editors, and the podcast is a continuation of a live show that ran at the (professional) iO Theater in Chicago.

Somewhere in the over 200 pages of my website, I comment that no classifications system really works. The Audio Drama page gets a lot more traffic than the pro comedy and parody page, though.
