Laugh Out Loud: Upcoming Comedy Acts in Chicago
In a city where winter lasts nearly seven months out of the year, it's very important to have a sense of humor. Perhaps that's why Chicago is home to one of the most vibrant comedy scenes in the country, and why big names continuously make it a point to put us on their tour schedule. In fact, it seems as if there has been a rise in comedians stopping by in the past couple of years. We've seen the likes of Conan O' Brien, Louis C K, Jim Gaffigan, and Chelsea Handler to name a few, and the list keeps getting larger. Shows are selling out quickly, and tickets seem to be getting harder and harder to get. Blame it on the weather, economy, or whatever you like, but it seems to me that people just want to laugh and I can get behind that. So, for those of you who fit that description, I've compiled a list of upcoming shows you might be interested in.
