Downtown Chicago Bosses, 2003 - 2010
Teacher, Coach, Improviser
It's with great sadness that ComedySportz announces the passing of Mike Enriquez, a player on our field for several years and the nicest guy in improv comedy ever. Like so many of Chicago's greatest talents, no one theater could keep him all to themselves. Mike was a fixture at ComedySportz, iO, and the Playground as well as starting his Chicago career working on staff at The Second City.
At ComedySportz, Mike performed in the ensemble, taught in the training center, and served on ComedySportz's Artistic Team. Many remember Mike as someone who supplemented his comedic wit and prowess at ComedySportz with amazing dance skills. This ability led Mike to spend his last years in the company as our Choreographer, helping players bring coordination and confidence to our improvised dance moves.
Originally from Oklahoma, Mike is survived by his mother, three siblings, and the literally thousands of improvisers he touched with his gentle spirit and genuine warmth. We'll miss you, Mike.
