Written by

The second annual Comedy Exposition, a three-day festival of standup and alt comedy hitting three Chicago neighborhoods in July, has announced a final lineup that includes headliners Todd Glass, James Adomian, Sara Schaefer, Baron Vaughn, Adam Cayton-Holland, Phoebe Robinson, Megan Gailey and Kate Berlant alongside a host of local and out-of-state comics.

The Expo is set to take place July 10–12 at multiple venues in Lakeview, Wicker Park and Old Town (consolidated into one ’hood each day, so you can walk from set to set). Locals like Danny Kallas, Kelsie Huff and Rebecca O'Neal are on many of the bills, with venues including Schubas, Chop Shop and Sunday's climactic show headlined by Glass at UP Comedy Club. Also of note: a special edition of the now L.A.-based Joe Kwaczala's The Late Live Show at iO Saturday night. Watch the fest's site for schedule updates.
