Afterthoughts: A Comedy Roast Show

Afterthoughts isn't just the meanest roast show in Chicago, it's also completely anonymous. While the comedians are performing, their friends write mean (and accurate) jokes about them, which are then read aloud to the audience. It gets nasty, and it gets mean--but it's always funny. 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)
