Adam McKay

Moves to Chicago

1 Jan, 1990

McKay drops out of Temple University and moves to Chicago after discovering improv.

I dropped out of college, sold my comic-book collection, bought a 1976 Chrysler New Yorker that was actually a dead man’s car, and set out to do anything I wanted. It’s almost a Johnny Cash song, but I was looking to do something that would give me infinite possibilities as a performer and would never bore me onstage.

He begins taking courses at ImprovOlympic.
