Just For Laughs Chicago
The third annual Just For Laughs Chicago comedy festival kicks off tonight with three shows, quickly accelerates to a frenzied blur of simultaneous hilarity with a dazzling array of local and national acts from Wednesday through Saturday, then eases to an A-list denouement on Sunday evening as Steve Martin and Martin Short take the stage together at the Chicago Theatre. (There's a third funny Martin in the mix too: Demetri.)
As usual I'll be covering the festival for Flavorpill Chicago, the city's only going-out guide, and posting links to my picks in this space throughout the week.
Meanwhile you can check out the official festival website here. Get out there, see something new, support live comedy and have fun!
