What's Popping!

Doug Stanhope
Damn! Halloween is almost on top of us, it's cold as hell, winds are blowing like crazy from hurricane Sandy and there are so many insane high quality comedy events going on this week it's scary. The biggest/best bet is probably the Doug Stanhope show featuring Junior Stopka, Mike Lebovitz (Tuesday) and Ray Holleb (Wednesday) which is going on tonight and tomorrow at Reggie's Rock Club.  If you can still get tickets I would highly recommend it.  Also high on our list is the Comedians You Should Know showcase which is going on tomorrow night.  The boys are gonna party big since it's Halloween with an after party to follow the show... should be bananas... PLUS in two weeks it's our own insane "Comedy Of Chicago" showcase at the UP Comedy club. The lineup is an exceptional example of Chicago talent. So save the date and come support.  Now check out what's popping.
