Everyone's A Lawyer

Everybody thinks they'd make a great lawyer, and you're no different - whether you are scrapping on social media, arguing with your grandfather, or just yelling at the nightly news as you lay in bed slowly dying alone. But opinions are not the law and who better to test these opinions than comedians? Three Comedian-contestants are presented with real-life legal scenarios, and present the best (and comical) solutions and answers for their clients. Complete with opening statements, arguments, closing arguments, and, of course, standup comedy, the audience plays judge and jury to decide the winning "lawyer." "Everyone's a Lawyer" is the creation of comedian and attorney Paul Farahvar, who has been delighting audiences with his self-deprecating humor with shows like "Drink Date Laugh" and his podcast SINGLES ONLY on iTunes. Voted one of the top 40 up and coming comedians in America in 2017 (Good Seats Events) as well as "Top 40 under 40" by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin in 2012, Paul Farahvar is uniquely qualified as the "laugh lawyer" to host this blend of comedy and law. His years delighting audiences and captivating judges and juries combine for this unique experience combining the law with laughter. Also featured on the debut show is Adam Burke (NPR "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me"), Marty Derosa (Comedians You Should Know), and Azhar Uzman (Dave Chappelle) There is a 2 drink/item minimum for every show. 18+ ages. Age restriction: 18 years and over 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage)

Featuring Paul Farahvar, Rob Gleeson, Felonious Munk, Joe McMahon and more comedians to be announced!
