Comedy Weirdness OR Wekend Fright Fest

It's Friday and a ton of comedy options are going on tonight through Sunday. It's right before Halloween so you know it's going to be a bananas type weekend in the Chicago comedy scene. Although we always do a What's Popping segment on Monday, sometimes the weekend shows can get lost in the shuffle so we listed a few events below that should definitely be on your radar. ALSO, just for entertainments sake, go to super weird comedian Eric Andre's mind fuck of a web site (trust me on this). You will get a different experience every time you click link from our page (but hop to it, not sure how long it lasts). And be sure to watch the above video staring Andre, which is a clip just released by Above Average Comedy (the same folks who produced SNL, Portlandia, 30 rock etc). Enjoy.
