Tim Minchin at Chicago's Just For Laughs Festival

Self-described "pianist, singer, songwriter, actor, comedian, pervert and wannabe rockstar," international star Tim Minchin performs a five-night run of music and comedy. Minchin, who had recent stand-out performances on Conan as well as The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, will make his Chicago debut at Lincoln Hall.

Many of his humorous songs have a lovely skeptical bent, and lots of generally funny, funny stuff. Plus, he's got that awesome Australian/British accent thing going on.

Several of us have tickets for Tuesday night, though I also have tickets for a couple of other nights, pending my work schedule. RSVPing at this site doesn't do anything but let us know you're have to actually buy tickets at

    Snacks pre-Minchin: I'm going to be at Lincoln Station (next door to the venue) at 8:00 p.m. *This is a change of venue from Buffalo Wild Wings.*

    I will definitely want to go out before Tuesday night. If you have a particular suggestion, offer it up. I'll drive down Lincoln today and see if I see anything good...Tuesday night shouldn't be too hard.

    Anyone interested in meeting up prior to Tuesday's performance? There are several restaurants near by.

    Probably meeting together will work! I wish all the shows weren't at 10pm, but I'm going to rally. Anyway, we'll figure out a place closer to the event.

    If any of you want to meet up Tuesday evening, before the performance, let me know.
    I think Michael Shermer might be making a buck or two with this "skepticism thing." And I think Brian Dunning would like to. The only problem I see is that there are way to many people making an awful lot of money with that "credulous thing."

    I'm glad to hear nobody's making money. I got the wrong impression then, it seemed when I would check in on events there would be many with fees, some pretty high. I think I mistook the skeptic cruises as being listed here, because I had concerns that multiple-thousands of $s changing hands with no mention of non-profit.

    I had wanted to go to a meetup, and they kept coming up on days I couldn't.. then when I kept seeing $ signs in the other listed things, it bothered me. Just how I felt

    Have only been to a couple of events, they were "donations accepted." At one event, they had a jar by the door. At the other, I had to TRACK DOWN the organizers to give my donation. I am confident they are NOT "in it for the money." Nor have I ever met- in almost 30 years- ANYONE who ever was making money on this "skepticism thing."

    David, what are you talking about? No one is making money from this.

    May 6, 2011

  • David

    I'll stick with podcasts if this skepticism thing is becoming a way to make money.
