What we're about

If you're like me you LOVE comedy but hate going to comedy clubs. You pay an expensive ticket price, there's a 2 drink minimum on over priced drinks, and it's all for a show that usually is only about average. NO THANKS!!! Well we are in luck because we live in Chicago, which is one of the best cities to see GREAT independent comedy. Some of the best comedians today ( Hannibal Buress, T.J. Miller, Pete Holmes, Lil Rel, Kumail Nanjiani, Beth Stelling, Kyle Kinane, Liza Treyger, Brooks wheelan, Matt Braunger, and the list goes on and on) all started in Chicago performing at these fantastic shows that most people don't even know about. I've been supporting Chicago comedy for over 5 years and I know all the best shows to see the best comedy at a price of nothing or close to nothing. I want all of us to be in the know and when this new wave of great Chicago comedians makes it I want us to say "I knew about them before anyone". How cool is that?! So I've dedicated this group to show us what shows we need to know about. I've only put up the ones that I think are the best of the best for that day of the week. I've contacted the people that run them and they all have agreed to accommodate us so we all can meet and sit together. Some have even offered special pricing (including free entry) for members of meetup. So lets all get a well deserved laugh in! PS they're still shows out there that I might not know about. So if you know of a great one please feel free to message me!
