What's Popping!

Took a break for a few days over Xmas to recharge the batteries, was feeling a bit rundown and just wanted to chill with the GF, eat fatty food and open presents... Funny thing is, after a few days, couldnt wait to get back in the mix. So now back on the grind with a vengence. Got a couple of major inteviews with two hot former Chicago comics coming out in the next few days... In the meantime there are lots of top notch comedy events going on this weekend. Shows that should definitly be on your radar are: Dan Telfer Headlines @ The Mayne Stage, STAND UP STAND UP, Final Shows at The Lincoln Lodge, Liza Treyger & Megan GaileyTHE NASTY SHOW and MUCH more.
