Cocktails & Comedy!

Update 5/15: The show that got the most votes in the poll was Baby Wants Candy, at the Apollo Theater in Lincoln Park. The address is 2540 N. Lincoln Avenue. Tickets are $15 and the show starts at 10:30 PM. Please plan on arriving at 10:00 so that we can gather as a group to buy tickets and grab seats. You do not need to purchase a ticket in advance if you don’t want to. We are able to purchase them at the box office on the night. I called the Apollo and they told me the theater seats around 400 people and rarely sells out completely. Seating is general admission. 

Second, for anyone who is interested, we will be meeting for pre-show drinks at 8:30 at the Barrelhouse Flat, which is right down the street from the Apollo. The address is 2624 N. Lincoln Avenue. If you will be coming to the bar, please text me at[masked] or post a comment by 8:00 PM Friday night so that I can tell them how big our party is. Around 10:00 we will walk over to the Apollo to meet anyone just coming for the show and to buy tickets.

I will also post a comment on the event page once we’re at the theater so that everyone knows where to find the group. Feel free to text me also [masked]).

Original Post: There are a ton of comedy clubs in Chicago, so why not a night out to one? There are a few smaller theaters that are even BYOB! I'm proposing a Friday night out for pre-show drinks and then a show afterwards and then see where the night takes us. Some places I've heard good things about:  

Thirsty OR Baby Wants Candy at the Apollo Theater
Pimprov at Chemically Imbalanced Theater
Bye Bye Liver at the Public House Theater
Uncle Tom & Jerry Curl at the Playground Theater

Anyway, figured I'd gauge the interest and then we'll go from there!

    I'm looking forward to this event and meeting you ladies! I'm a lover of comedy...especially anything ridiculous and awkward. Should be a fun night!
