What's Popping... AKA as terrorists & tickets..

Beth Stelling
Wow... what is going on in America right now? A entire movie theater of innocent people was attacked and massacred at a Batman movie last night, my good buddy, comedian Jamie Campebell was viciously beaten the other day and parts of the south-side of Chicago are literally a fucking war zone. The world is fucked, I think we can all agree on this.  But I for one refuse to be intimidated by the forces of evil, or a nut with a gun and will continue fight the good fight of comedy awareness (because we all need a laugh right now) and I encourage everyone to do the same.

Sure we could all stay at home, lie in bed under our covers and cower in fear, but you know what happens when you do that? The terrorists win people. And thats exactly what these gun nuts are... from the surburban gunman to the urban gangbanger... terrorists plain and simple.  It's time we treated them as such and demanded something drastic is done about it.  OK.. I'm off the soapbox.

Hey guess what? We're giving out more FREE tickets!! (jesus what a terrible segue-way).  Yep we are giving way two free pairs of tickets to the Greg Behrendt show at the UP comedy Club for Sunday night 8PM. Behrendt's acclaimed stand-up comedy has been seen on HBO, "The Tonight Show," "Late Show w/David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and Comedy Central. Plus he is the author of a best selling book that sold like three bazillion copies and was made into a major motion picture.

So... to win a pair (2) of free tickets to the show all you gotta do is....NAME THAT MOVIE!! Send your answer to james@comedyofchicago.com
