Early Chicago Improv Pioneer Josephine Forsberg Dies at 90


Josephine Forsberg — one of the first improv teachers at Second City in Chicago in 1959 and teacher to folks such as George Wendt, Shelley Long, Bill Murray, and Charna Halpern, founder of Improv Olympic — passed away on Monday at age 90. The Chicago Tribune has a lovely article on her and her career influencing thousands of performers in the Windy City.
