It’s only March, but we’re getting ready for the invasion of many of the country’s finest comedic minds upon the Windy City in mid June for the Just for Laughs festival.
Well before all the greats descend upon Chicago, some of the emerging local talent (and a few gents from Minneapolis) are going to test their skills to see if they can’t net a slot in one of the festival’s many showcases. Thursday night, at The Red Bar Comedy Club, 15 comics will take the stage for that very honor.
You can order tickets here (just five bones!) or if you need more convincing, I’ve posted a video and link to each comics webpage below.
