Weekly Top 5

Weekly Top 5 time! As stated previously this list is subjective, based on opinions and only covers events we actually went to. So of course, we missed some shit... Feel free to send links to your favorite events. Here are the 5 best things that happened last week.


The Chaser Open Mic @ Comedy Sportz: Went to Comedy Sportz last night to check out the scene, a great room, but not for the obvious reasons. Was actually a slow night it terms of crowd, and there were some no-shows at the beginning of the list. But this occasionally happens to all mics, no matter how popular. What I dig about the The Chaser is, it's a really solid space for comics to get their WORK on. Which is apparent by how many veterans show up to perform tighten up sets (see below). Ideally you go to an open mic to try new material.  No point in covering the shit that works. You want to try the new and underdeveloped stuff. The Chaser is a great room to do this and that's because of, first and foremost, Jamie Cambell.

Big Talk Hard Show...

Lisa Marie Varon
Talk Hard, which happens every Friday at midnight inside the ComedySportz Chicago theatre, is having a huge show this week. This unconventional talk show features crazy characters, great special guests, and a brand of comedy that's written by a crack team of the best comedian/writers in the Chicago scene. The list of staff writers really does read like a who's who of local comedic talent. Jamie Campbell the prolific host (TBS Just For Laughs, ABC, NBC), reached out and asked if we could plug the show and we agreed readily cause the lineup is pretty damn sick. Check out the press release and then get yourself a ticket!
