7pm Congrats on Your Success Presents: An Experience (Stand Up)

The producers of Congrats on Your Success - a free, BYOB comedy show at Uncharted Books in Logan Square - are no strangers to nerd-dom. Lucky for them, through their attempts at twisting their nerdy experiences into great stand up comedy, they found each other... and started a comedy show. These are their stories. Featuring stand up sets by Bill Bullock, Justin Covington (Google), Odinaka Ezeokoli (Marson and the FYF Crew), Rebecca O'Neal (Vanity Fair, Gawker, Bridgetown Comedy Festival,, and Charlie Rohrer.

Tickets cost $10 and are already on sale for individual shows.

About The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival:

The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival celebrates all that is the Chicago nerd comedy scene. From Stand Up to Improv, nerds will unite for one glorious weekend in Chicago to laugh, pay homage, and perhaps worship their favorite genres of nerdness.

Featuring performances by Improvised Star Trek, The Nerdologues, Plan 9 Burlesque, Yamato Potato Cannon (headed by Jim Povolo or Team StarKid fame), Matt Griffo, The Hot Karl, Bri-Ko and more!

“This festival is essential for the nerd community of Chicago,” says festival producer, Katie Johnston-Smith. “We nerds need to gather together to laugh with our brethren, and forget that The Big Bang Theory on CBS is how our parents explain us to their friends.”
