T.J. Miller: On Chicago and LA

Wanted to show this clip of T.J. Miller being interviewed by Jacob Williams on what the transition between Chicago and L.A. has been like. Miller, if you don't know, is a nice example of a Chicago comedy success story. The man has appeared in several Hollywood films, has extensive TV credits and tours the country.  He may not be a household name, but by any comedians standard he's definitely "living the dream".  Check out his take on moving to L.A.



Lots of other stuff going on I want to mention. Wednesday nights has transformed suddenly from a desert to an oasis with two more new weekly open mics starting this week.  They are:
The Flock Yourself Open Mic @ Bird's Nest Bar Sign up @ 7PM, Show starts @ 8PM, 2500 N. Southport Ave. Chicago IL
The American Dream Mic: @ The Blarney Stone, 3424 N Sheffield Ave
Sign up @ 8PM
Also on Thursday night you have.
The Ron Shock Benefit @ the Lincoln Lodge. This is for a GREAT cause and I encourage EVERYONE to come out for it. Produced by Junior Stopka and the Lincoln Lodge.  Buy tickets here.
Original Texas Outlaw: Ron Shock Benefit Show
And this weekend Chicago's own, Joe Kilgallon, is headlining all weekend long at The Comedy Bar.
