What's Popping!

Yo. As usual, a boatload of comedic insanity is going on tonight, this weekend and beyond. Tons of activity on Thursday nights alone. Seriously, Thursdays are like the new Saturday in the Chicago comedy scene. Just stacked to the point of being ridiculous. If Thursday is your "going out night" you couldn't ask for more options to choose from. Seems like almost all the top showcases and open mics are happening on this day for some reason and the best part is that they're all free or almost free + the bars always have a shit ton of specials. Suffice to say there is a lot going on in the Chicago comedy scene, so check out what's popping!
