This is a few weeks away, but it's going to be an insane show and rare Chicago opportunity to catch two envelope pushing comedians perform together - definitely wanted to put it on EVERYBODY's radar.
Doug Stanhope's "Shit Town Comedy Tour" Featuring Junior Stopka will be in Chicago October 5th & 6th. This is the ONLY Chicago stop of the tour and the Saturday show will be a special MIDNIGHT event. ALSO The venue, Reggies Rock Club is providing a round trip bus to and from Coles Bar in Logan Square. As of RIGHT now tickets are available for purchase at Coles so jump on it.
Tickets for the Party Bus are only $30 ($25 standard GA ticket plus $5 for the transportation) Tickets can be purchased at Cole's or at Reggie's to avoid service fees. Tickets are also available online. If purchasing online select the $30 Cole's bus package.
Stanhope is quite simply one of the best living comics working in America right now. But if your not familiar (what??) check the Bio...
"Doug Stanhope is a stand-up comic. Has been since 1990. His material ranges from true-life graphic perversion to volatile social criticism. Doug is vulgar, opinionated, brutally honest and shockingly uninhibited and is certainly not for everybody. Doug has built a wide-ranging television resume of dubious achievement. He hosted The Man Show on Comedy Central as well as the ubiquitous pseudo-porn for the sexually crippled, "Girls Gone Wild", both solely and shamelessly for financial gain. He has appeared on "The Howard Stern Show", "Comedy Central Presents", "Premium Blend", NBC's "Late Friday", "Spy TV" BBC's "Floor Show Live" while on ecstasy and wrote, produced and starred in Fox's "Invasion of the Hidden Cameras" and has even popped up on "Fox News with Greta Van Sustern" and "The Jerry Springer Show". Doug is a two-time winner of Time Out New York’s “Best Comedy Performance of the Year”. He’s appeared at multiple major comedy festivals including Montreal Just For Laughs, Aspen US Comedy Arts, Chicago Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Scotland, where he won the Strathmore Press Award for Best Act of the Fringe in his debut year. Selected by both Variety and the Hollywood Reporter as one of the Top Ten Comics To Watch, Doug has released four CDs and three DVDs including "No Refunds" on Showtime in 2008".
Reggie's bus will depart Cole's at 11:00PM for Reggie's The bus is BYOB, but PBR will also be provided if 30+ tickets are sold. This is a bananas type deal to see Doug Stanhope and Junior Stopka. Dont miss the bus (HA!) on this one people.
