Colin Kane LIVE! Chicago

If you like dirty comedy, Colin Kane's your man. An insult comic that acknowledges the line and leaps over it, Kane is best known for his in-your-face delivery and off-the-cuff crowd work. Featuring an unlikely blend of piercing bite and authentic heart, Kane's R-rated act tackles sex, relationships, race... and everyone who is brave enough to sit in the front row. Kane recently made his film debut in a breakout role opposite Kevin Hart in "The Wedding Ringer," which was the #1 comedy in America for three weeks in a row. He has a special on Showtime, won Howard Stern's "Kill or Be Killed" comedy competition, and performs for our troops whenever possible through the Wounded Warrior Project. Kane's popularity has proven contagious across the country, and has happened mostly via word-of-mouth from a dedicated fan base. Anyone who comes to one of his shows is guaranteed to come back with 20 of their friends. A Los Angeles resident, the born-and-bred New Yorker sells out theaters and comedy clubs across the country. Now it's time for you to see why. Tickets are selling fast, get yours today! Complimentary tickets can be redeemed for $15 at the door after 7:30pm. Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

Featuring Colin Kane and more comedians to be announced!

NEMR Chicago

Nemr is a Lebanese/American Stand Up Comedian who is credited with establishing and pioneering the stand up comedy scene throughout the Middle East where he performs in English. He grew up in San Diego and then moved back with his family to Lebanon where he went on to break down barriers and unite people in a region where bombing on stage can have a completely different meaning.

He is an accomplished comic with six full feature specials, a prime time television show 'A Stand Up Comedy Revolution', a movie release of two of his specials, 'EPIC' and 'Victorious Secret' - which, when it played live and subsequently formed the basis of the movie, sold out to over 3,000 people in one night and played in a Roman Coliseum. He currently holds the record for the biggest show in every major country in the Middle East, with his latest special, Uninterrupted Funny Observations, selling out to over 4,000 people in one night in Beirut alone in July of 2014.

In May of 2014 he also featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine (Middle East) solidifying Nemr's legacy as 'The biggest name in Stand Up on the Middle East' in writing.

He is now back in the USA and aims to do in America what he did across the Middle East, bring people together through laughter and merriment. He comes bearing gifts of myrrh and frankincense. No you can't smoke them.

Catch Nemr in his debut U.S. tour before he heads off to wrap up in the Middle East with shows in Dubai, Qatar, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon - making this the first ever stand up comedy global event.
