This ain't your grandma's stand up. Forget about cute puns and adorable observations and strap in for a night of in-your-face, no-holds-barred comedy! We compiled the best comics in Chicago, removed their leashes and let them loose...just for you. It may get dark. It may get dirty. It may make you question what's appropriate to laugh at in public. And it absolutely will be a night you will never forget...whether you like it or not! Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

Your Feature Presentation Presents:

A bad movie breakdown with a game show twist. On the first Sunday of each month, Join comedians Jonah Jurkens, Matt Chiaramonte and some of their funny friends at the Laugh Factory stage to experience some of the worst movies ever committed to film. After lovingly ribbing (or mercilessly eviscerating) scenes and a short edit of the film, the panel plays a series of games where one audience member (Maybe you) will be named the BIG WINNER! This show has everything! Clips, Trailers, Games, Skits, Surprises, Whoopie Goldberg, audience participation, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll silently fart in your seat and hope that no one notices. We noticed! And we still love you! If you haven't seen Your Feature Presentation, you haven't seen movies! "Two Thumbs Up! For the show, not for the movies" - Gene Shalit's mustache Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)
