ComedySportz Theater Monday Night Showcase and Open Mic!


Went to ComedySportz theater to check out the Monday night showcase and open mic called 100 Proof Comedy and The Chaser. I wasn't sure what to expect since I haven't really been to any improv shows there.  Well, it's pretty freaking good.  In my opinion it's a real sweet venue for Chicago comedy.  It's funny cause I have walked by this theater a zillion times on my way to work but never went in.  Recently I head through the grapevine that Jamie Campbell was hosting this cool new showcase/open mic so I figured it was time to check it out and now I wish I would have gone sooner.  A really good operation, very well run.  I love watching comedy in a professional theatre.  Something about the lighting and sound always takes the experience to a higher level  The seats were 5 times more comfortable then the old Lakeshore and the drink specials had me nice and tipsy.  Jaime Campbell is a damn fine host  He kept the show moving smoothly and is fucking funny as hell when he gets adequate time, I have seen him previously only at short time limit open mic's, so it was good to see him get down and do his thing.  The show case is $10, the open mic is free.  929 W.
