The best comedy shows to see in Chicago in March

Musical revamps of hit TV shows, stand-up superstars and alternative comedy icons dominate the March comedy calendar

We’re (finally) entering that final stretch of winter when Chicago’s tundra starts to slowly soften and come to life. It can be a grueling time, as our patience (and desire for patio dining) often gets the best of us. Instead of grumbling about how it’s not warm yet, blow off some steam at a comedy club. We’ve got a few solid acts coming to town this month: British podcasters My Dad Wrote A Porno bring their raunchy banter to town, alt-comedy icon Janeane Garofalo tells jokes at Thalia Hall, and fun new shows like Slide Show and FreakFest get their sea legs. Here are 25 shows you should check out if you’re looking for a laugh this March.
