Tighten up Tuesday OR Whats Popping Pt. 2

Damn... Although we posted a What's Popping segment yesterday, there is just so much freaking comedy going on (check out the most recent pics) this month that it made sense to write up another promotional piece in order to cover any shows that we missed. On the independent front,  The Lincoln Lodge is this weekend with a very strong lineup (DANNY KALLAS headlines) and the third night of comedy for the Chicago I Love You Festival is tomorrow night at Windy City Inn.

Also two HUGE artists, Janeane Garofalo (@ Mayne Stage) and D.L. Hughley (@ Up Comedy Club) are coming to town this weekend, both of those shows are selling fast FYI. And be sure to keep Oct 26th free for the insane Halloween comedy/costume party @ Hidden Shamrock with a DJ + Booze specials. See you out there.
