Sean Flannery Roasts The RedEye


The RedEye, a daily publication (you know.. the free paper that smelly guy in front of your CTA stop tries to sell you) published by the Chicago Tribune celebrated it's tenth anniversary by hosting a good old fashioned roast at the brand new Chicago Laugh Factory last week.  Lots of good natured ribbing ensued.  Several of Chicago's best and brightest comedians were on hand to give the RedEye the proper respect it deserves... or to lambast it as an irrelevant, time-wasting rag that most people read to avoid talking to the homeless. One of those comics was Sean Flannery.  Flannery was probably my favorite with his trademark storytelling style of hilarity (you can catch him performing tonight at the Comedy Bar by the way).  Now check out the video...
