Hump Day Happenings.

Brian Babylon
It's Wednesday and the world keeps turning with a solid night of comedy shows.

First and foremost you have The 7th annual summer Bronzeville Comedy Showcase, presented by Vocalo 90.7 and hosted by comedian Brian Babylon, host of Vocalo’s Morning AMp and panelist on Chicago Public Media’s Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me!, debuts tonight for a 4 week run.

The popular Bronzeville Comedy Showcase is a seasonal weekly comedy event where comedians (both local and national headliners) try out fresh sets in front of a mixed audience. The showcase, booked by Babylon, brings together diverse comedians from across Chicagoland. "I have been doing this show for seven years now, and it’s always one of the best places to see comedy,” says Babylon. “We decided last year to move the show to a bigger venue to accommodate the large crowd that has made this the best summertime comedy showcase. The Blanc gallery is a swanky art space with a large outdoor area that takes this comedy show to the next level. This is gearing up to be the best summer to date.”

Performances will be held in the outside courtyard at Blanc, weather permitting, and are free and open to the public. Cash bar.
