On the Scene: February 17 - 22, 2013

Chastity Washington @ The Shit Show
Damn it's been one whirlwind of a week. Went to Entertaining Julia on Sunday, Chicago Underground Comedy on Tuesday, Stand Up Stand Up on Thursday and The Shit Show last night (Friday).

The Shit Show, was a blast. A solid line up, packed house and free samples of Fireball Whisky (tastes like Big Red chewing gum... not bad actually, had like five of those suckers) made it a perfect trifecta of comedic indulgence. Mike Lebovitz, Aaron Weaver and special guest, Brian Babylon were polished professionals as always, but the headliner Chastity Washington really killed it.

The other shows that popped off this week were stacked as well. Beth Stelling was back in town only for a couple of days from L.A. but managed to find time to co-host Entertaining Julia  and headline at CHUC. Stelling was in top form and did not disappoint the standing room crowd that came out to see her on a freezing Tuesday night. Drew Frees also headlined his narrow ass off at Stand Up Stand Up.
