A Prayer For Those Moving Away by Jason Chin

As more and more people from Chicago’s improv community moved away to pursue their dreams, our late colleague and friend, Jason Chin, wrote a poem/prayer for them.

We thought it would be nice to share it with everyone.

A Prayer for those Moving Away

As you fly from our lake shores

and say goodbye to old friends

may you enjoy as many smiles

as you created here.

May your new home

contain all the dreams you’re chasing,

May your new home

come to realize what we know;

That you’re great,

That you’re hilarious,

That you’re better than any one city.

Come back to us

when you’re homesick,

Come back to us

to brag and be a famous dick,

Come back to us

just to

Come back us.

Your home, Your friends, Your theaters

will still be here.

Good luck, fare well

they’re lucky to have you.
