What's Popping...

Sun is out! OK... yeah it's still cold as hell, but at least it's not snowing. Perfect opportunity to get out of your winter cave, shave (that means you too lady), dress up and and enjoy some comedy. If it's your first time here, this segment is your guide to the Chicago comedy scene with listings and links to the best shows and comedy clubs. There is usually so much going on we try to break it up with an article on Monday, which covers events during the week, and then an update on Thursday that covers the weekend. So lets get to it, lots happening this week starting tonight. NUMBER 1 on your radar should be the Just For Laughs Audition show at the The Up Comedy Club. Some real Chicago heavyweights will be throwing it down tonight... Check out what else is up this week.
