Ladies and gentlemen, it was a rocky transition, but we are back, we are focused, and we are ready to knock you out with our comedy, and our comedic friends. We can’t thank you enough for sticking with us in this transitional period, and now it’s payback time. It’s time for us to pay you back with shows that literally could not be better.
I mean, come on. Check this lineup out:
Your headliner, Liza Treyger
Liza is just the best, you guys. Whether it’s on a stage in front of hundreds of people or in the corner of a party discussing conspiracy theories, Liza is always going to be entertaining. And, she will have an opinion, and that opinion will be heard. In the past year, Liza has gone from “a great comic” to “literally one of the best in the city.” It’s been a wonderful transition to watch, but you know what’s just as good? Seeing her now. Like you can this week, at The Comedy Evening.
Some people call Chris Condren “weird,” some call him a genius. Truth be told, both may be accurate, but that’s how it always goes. Someone who is a true individual will always be judged by those who are not. This is getting awfully heady for the third sentence of an intro for a comedian, but that’s just how it goes. Chris is a hilarious performer who’s been featured in the Just For Laughs Festival, and if you’ve never experienced his brand of humor, you owe it to yourself to come enjoy it this week.
We could not be more excited to have Eliot Rahal back with us this week. Until about 9 months (very rough estimate) ago, Eliot was a beloved friend and comic here in Chicago. Then, he moved to Knoxville, TN to pursue his love, his comedy, and his comic book career. We’re happy to report that he’s been successful in all his chase of all three. We’re even happier to have his sometime-insulting-but-always-uplifting self back with us for a visit.
There’s nothing bad I can really say about Jeff Arcuri, not that I’m just going around looking for bad things to say about people. Jeff’s just a really funny guy with a great attitude. For a while, I thought he was bald, so I assumed that was what humbled him, but then, when he grew out a real nice head of hair, I realized that he had just been shaving his head. My only other theory? Good parents. Could be good parents. Whatever the case is, we’re excited to welcome him to the show this week.
Plus, special guests? Who knows? It could happen. It certainly has before, like that time Nick Thune dropped by, or that time James Adomian dropped by, or that time Hannibal Buress dropped by. Anything can happen is what I’m saying.
And, as always, the drink specials will be going nuts, the popcorn will be free, and our “award-winning” dance party will rage on deep into the night after the show. We’re really starting to get the good Comedy Evening vibe going in our new location, and we could really use your help keeping that going. I certainly hope to see you all there.
