Just For Laughs: Saturday

The Just For Laughs Chicago comedy festival wakes up today hung over, looks around in vain for a clean shirt, squints groggily into the bathroom mirror, shrugs at the stubble and missing tooth, and rolls up its sleeves for another nonstop night of comedy performance.

Here are my Saturday picks from Flavorpill Chicago:
True comedy aficionados might have already caught Seth Meyers' surprise appearance Thursday night at his fellow SNL writer Michael Patrick O'Brien's midnight showcase at iO Theater. In a like vein, O'Brien's 8pm show tonight at the Annoyance Theater—variously promoted as either Misled (his acclaimed two-man sketch attack with Peter Grosz) or T.J. & Pat O'Brien (improvisation with fellow master T.J. Jagodowski)—promises to be the sleeper show of the festival.
