The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Sara Freund

1. Laugh out loud with local comics

On any night you’ll be able to hole up in this neighborhood bar with a craft beer and live entertainment. Tonight, instead of live bands, guests can spend the night laughing at carefully selected comics at the Chicago Underground Comedy show. (Beat Kitchen, 2100 W Belmont Ave, 9:30pm. $5)

2. Rock out to country tunes

Touring behind her 2015 release Storyteller, country music queen Carrie Underwood comes to Rosemont with a 360-degree stage and plenty of twangy hits in tow. (Allstate Arena, 6920 N Mannheim Rd, 7pm. $46-$79.50)

3. Spend an evening with an icon

Beloved comedian and author Carol Burnett hits the stage for a night of reflection and spontaneity. She’ll take unfiltered questions from the audience and share some of her fondest memories. (The Chicago Theatre, 175 N State St, 8pm. $33.50–$195.50)
