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)
