Thursdays Are Hot...

The Chicago comedy scene is fluid. Comics come and go, showcases start and end, cold rooms get hot and so on... One of the aspects of this fluidity is how certain nights become hotbeds of comedic activity. Right now Thursday nights in the Chicago comedy scene are a prime example of that. In other words Thursdays are hot as f**k. From an all female open mic to mixed stand-up and improv shows to big name comedians, Thursdays have a little bit of everything, check it out.
