Teachers is a comedy web series about the small and often wildly inappropriate conversations teachers have with each other in the course of their workday.
The very funny web series quickly gained popularity on the web and caught the attention of The Onion, who approached The Katydids about partnering up to to create more episodes. Shortly after, The Katydids caught the attention of another online comedy company: Above Average Productions.
Above Average is Lorne Michaels’ online company, Broadway Video, newest venture for featuring original short form comedy, including talent and writers from favorites such as Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, The Lonely Island and the best of YouTube.
The Katydids are a six member female ensemble of some of Chicago’s best up and coming performers whose names all happen to be derived from “Katherine”.
Individually, they are Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, , Katie O’Brien, and Katie Thomas.
