THE ANTI-SOCIAL NETWORK AT CHICAGO THEATRE
A Night of All-Star Comedy
The venue was the prestigious 3,600 seat Chicago Theatre.
The line up consisted of comedic powerhouses Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, Bill Burr, with host Jim Norton.
Audience feedback was flippin’ badass!
These all star comedians took stage with full force as the packed house chugged their drinks and cheered for comedy. Comedian Jim Norton not only warmed up the crowd but continually heightened the overall experience as comedians rotated in between sets. Lighting issues and music mistakes created the perfect atmosphere for Norton to flex his comedic muscles.
The audience cried laughing when he hollered, “Who is running the lights around here, Michael J. Fox?” His spontaneous eruptions and rants tied in realisms found in the world as the audience followed him through out the show.
Strobe lights flashed and clouds of makeshift fog floated across the stage as comedian Bill Burr ran out in full strength. With specials on Comedy Central as well as reoccurring roles on The Chappelle Show, Bill made people fall out of their seats laughing as he compared living with his girlfriend to forms of modern day torture.
Comedian Jim Breuer, past SNL cast member and actor in Half Baked, brought a style of physical comedy and truth to the stage. His signature laugh added flavor to his set as he went on rants about Tracy Morgan, struggles of having three children, and after thoughts of cleaning his father after he pooped his pants.
Breuer’s dirty jokes created the perfect transition for the malicious Dave Attell. Standing in a black ball cap and black jacket, he brought the same type of humor found on his television show Insomniac. From calling attention to members of the audience to creating funny innuendos with food products and body parts, Dave delivered a hilarious set that will not be forgotten.
Dave lit a cigarette as all four comedian joined on stage to wrap the show. This was one powerful lineup in one beautiful venue yet it was time to travel north to the esteemed iO Theatre.
ADSIT & LUTZ AT iO THEATRE
With multiple theatres and training facilities at iO (formerly known as Improv Olympics) this venue is a breeding ground for some of the worlds funniest actors. Tonight it was all about performers Scott Adsit and John Lutz from the Emmy Award-winning comedy 30 Rock.
The tag team duo did an hour long improvised show which blew the audiences mind. From lawyers who lie the wrong way to suicide helpline employees who provide inadequate support, the callbacks and character developments created by Adsit and Lutz were out of this world.
Both comedians will be performing additional shows at iO and additional information can be obtained at www.justforlaughschicago.com
