Your Feature Presentation

Do you like shows like Mystery Science 3000, How Did This Get Made, and @Midnight? Do you love bad movies? Well we have the perfect show for you! Join comedians Jonah Jurkens, Nate Burrows and some of their funny friends 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 comedic 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! Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

The Roast of Wonder Woman

Since 1941, Wonder Woman has been a hero of justice, love, and feminism. Sounds like she's had it too good for too long. On June 4th, Character Assassination is roasting the Amazonian superhero, featuring appearances from Superman, Batman, and a whole lot more of her pals and enemies, all portrayed by Chicago's best and meanest stand-up comedians. For one night only, Wonder Woman won't need her Lasso of Truth to find out what they all they really think of her. 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)

Join us every first and last Monday of the month to see for yourself. Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

In Polite Company: A Political Comedy Show

In American culture, it is said, there are only three topics one should never bring up in polite company: Race, Religion, and Politics. WELCOME to IMPOLITE COMPANY. As Americans prepare for a Trump presidency, this surreal cultural and political context was made possible, at least in part, by the social etiquettes of 'politeness.' Many Americans refused to publicly admit who they were planning to vote for before the election, and even after its bizarre and largely unexpected outcome, countless Americans find it impossible to speak honestly with friends and family members with whom they have serious political disagreements. Check out some of the most hilariously insightful satire and biting political standup in Chicago. IMPOLITE COMPANY is held at 8pm, every 2nd Thursday of the month. Age restriction: 18 years and over; 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage). The INAUGURAL SHOW (just a week before Donald Trump is sworn into office), will include: SAM NORTON, RACHEL McCARTNEY, DAVID CARTER, and MICHAEL ROBINSON. It is hosted by show creator AZHAR USMAN, and headlined by Chicago standup legend DWAYNE KENNEDY. Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

Featuring David Carter and more comedians to be announced!
