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!
