What's Popping!

Snapshots @ Zanies - Tonight!
Took a week off to clear the head space. Yep. A whole week with no comedy content deadlines. It Felt good, actually got some time to focus on some other projects, but to be honest, after a few days I started to miss the crazy Chicago comedy scene in a big way. So now back to the grind in full force but first a Couple of things before we get into what's popping this week. Wanted to officially announce the addition of David Gavri (who has been getting some great interviews) and the incomparable Kelsie Huff as COC staff writers. Very excited for whats coming down the pipe. Without further ado, check out what's popping this week...
