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 Harry Potter

On Sunday, May 7, Character Assassination presents its most magical roast yet: The Roast of Harry Potter. Join Chicago's best comedians as they take the stage as Harry, Hagrid, Hermione, and even He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (it's Voldemort, btw) to deliver "incendio" level burns. Even Madame Pomfrey won't be able to help them after this. 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)
