Get ready for an outrageous evening of fun and laughter cabaret-style! Chicago-based comedians will share their collective wacky thoughts. Each comedian will perform a short set followed by a comedy jam where all the comedians will be on stage for an improvisational exchange with the audience. Cards will be handed out to the patrons before the show and they will be encouraged to ask any questions they wish of any of the comedians.
