The Roast of Vladimir Putin

On September 3rd at the Laugh Factory, join us for a very special evening roasting a very special comrade-- Russian President Vladimir Putin. This roast will be hosted by-- who else-- his BFF Donald Trump, and will feature scathing appearances from other world leaders like Queen Elizabeth II, Justin Treaudau, and much, much more (with each character played by one of Chicago's sharpest and meanest stand-up comedians). 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)

Featuring Andy Fleming, Tyler Jackson, Xavier Lamont, Gena Gephart , Jeff Arcuri, Sean Keller, Shannon Noll, David Philips, Joe Fernandez and more comedians to be announced!

Afterthoughts

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)

Featuring Kristin Fenchak, Carly Kane and more comedians to be announced!
