Caveat: I've only been twice. This is the friendliest and nicest atmosphere I've found in comedy in Chicago...and I have quite a few friends I see regularly. I think we paid four dollars for a beer (drinkers but not super drinkers), and my GFs effen was reasonable, as well. Most importantly, the show we saw (it was a workplace comedy, sorry I can't remember the name) was really, really good. And on a Thursday. We've been back already and will catch the mainstage show soon (it was sold out the night we tried, but that was the day of). Great new place, great prices, needs an awning/sign, though.

Since moving to Chicago, I seem to keep finding myself here on various dates and work outings. I saw the "Trash Boy" Musical (Hilarious! I love quirky musicals), "Bouncers" (I'm from the UK, I love Americans putting on an accent!) and "Bye Bye Liver". I saw it once living in Philadelphia (my Birthday- they sang to me!), and it was very cool to see it in its home! Some of the best sketch comedy I've seen in the city!

I was there last night at 10 for Bye Bye Liver, and apparently a few cast members were leaving. I don't know if they do this all the time after the late shows, but they opened up a bar onstage and let the audience come party with them! It was great! The cast was a bit emotional but still a lot of fun! And the cheap shots  didn't hurt. Well, not until this morning ;)

I actually got a chance to talk to the guy who wrote Bye Bye Liver- he was there hugging all the teary actors :) Super funny, nice guy! I'm definitely coming back to see his new show about Tinder- the actual App. It's called Tinder Loving or Love Me Tinder. Something about Tinder. I don't want to say too much about my private life (wink wink) but I personally can't wait!
