Crossbreed Comedy!

Crossbreed Comedy is the show Chicago comedy lovers have been waiting for! One part standup! One part improv! All parts hysterical! The idea was cooked up in a top secret laboratory 3 miles below the surface of the earth. Comedy scientists have perfected the formula and are bringing their results to Laugh Factory Chicago. Here's how XBC works: Host Matt Chiaramonte and three of Chicago's funniest comics take the stage to deliver razor-sharp standup comedy. After each set, one of Chicago's funniest improv teams will take the stage and perform long form improv based on the standup set you just saw. At the end, all the comics and improvisers come together on stage and play an improv game. Don't miss it! Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

Featuring Kellye Howard, Jonah Jurkens, Gwen La Roka and more comedians to be announced!

Michael Kosta Live

Michael Kosta is a stand-up comedian who most recently made his debut as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. He will be at Laugh Factory Chicago ONE NIGHT ONLY on Friday, October 20th! Kosta is no stranger to the world of talk shows. He was host and co-executive producer of The Comment Section for The Kardashian Network (formerly E!) and co-host on Fox Sports 1's, Crowd Goes Wild. Kosta started out as an athlete; he is quick to point out that he was once-ranked number 864 in the world in professional tennis and earned over $11,000 on tour. Don't laugh, that's $11,000 more than you made as a pro athlete. Kosta gained attention as a comedian when he broke out of the HBO Comedy and Arts Festival in Aspen. He quickly relocated to Los Angeles where he began his television career; he made regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno & Chelsea Lately before both those hosts drowned in their money and ended their shows. He has performed on Conan, @midnight, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and also starred in his own comedy special, Comedy Central Presents: Michael Kosta. As a host, Michael acted as a know-it-all correspondent for E!'s spinoff of The Soup, entitled The Soup Investigates, and was recently seen guest hosting the hit G4 series, Attack of The Show; that stint ended after Kosta caused the show as well as the network to be cancelled (the media says that the network was being reformatted, but we know better). Kosta has also developed or starred in pilots for NBC, Fox, and MTV that were all colossal failures. Aside from The Daily Show, Michael can be seen on Comedy Central's Snapchat series, Worst Birthday, which is based on his successful podcast. He also is the star and creator of the web series Sports. Kosta. Basement. In 2015, Kosta released his first comedy album on Comedy Dynamics Records, Comedy For Attractive People. Please don't listen to if you are ugly. Michael Kosta is represented by ICM Partners and managed by Jordan Tilzer at El Centro. Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)
