The Roast of Beauty and the Beast

The 1991 film Beauty and the Beast gave us a beautiful love story in a time where Angela Lansbury could be the most marketable member of a movie's cast. The 2017 live-action Beauty and the Beast film gave us... Hermione making out with a dog. On April 2nd, Character Assassination is raking your childhood over the coals at The Roast of Beauty and the Beast. Join Chicago's best comedians as they ferociously roast each other in character as Belle, the Beast, Lumiere, Gaston, and more Disney buddies. Make no mistake, this show is definitely not for children. Character Assassination is a roast show at Chicago's Laugh Factory that puts historical figures and beloved fictional personalities in the hotseat. Stacked against a ruthless panel of their peers, these roasts turn into a battle of the wits limited only by the imagination. Every show features top comedians, writing and performing in character and in costume as a wild roasting dais of popular icons with one goal in mind: to tear each other to shreds. Character Assassination is a sister show of Character Assassination Louisville, and is sponsored by the wonderful Fantasy Costumes. Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

Featuring Tyler Jackson, Andy Fleming, Danny Maupin, Mandee McKelvey, Kent Carney, Matty Ryan, Erin Grotheer, Audrey Jonas and more comedians to be announced!
