For Immediate Release (Chicago, IL) - For decades, the World Famous Laugh Factory has been providing world-class, cutting edge comedy to patrons of its clubs across the country. When the sun comes out, though, who wants to stay inside? That's why this summer; Laugh Factory Chicago is bringing comedy to the streets of the Lakeview neighborhood with an outdoor summer show, “Sidewalk Comedy!”

It's a one-of-a-kind, quirky, totally interactive chance to catch live comedy, win great prizes, and even have the chance to become a Laugh Factory Comedy Legend! Every Saturday from noon - 5 p.m. stop under Laugh Factory's state-of-the-art marquee at Belmont & Broadway to enjoy shade, refreshment, and hilarious entertainment. Sidewalk Comedy is jam-packed with exciting features! Here are just a few of the things you can look forward to this summer:

Chicago’s hottest comedians will be hopping up on an exact replica of our legendary stage and performing for all to hear. We will be serving complimentary refreshments, so step right up and enjoy some free comedy. There’s not even a two drink minimum!

One spin on the Laugh Factory Prize Wheel could win you free tickets to Laugh Factory Shows, valuable offers from local businesses, or even a high five from one of our Sidewalk Comedy staff members. You may even get to perform 2 minutes of your own material. But be careful, if you land on “HECKLE” you’ll have to hop on stage and try to perform while Chicago’s best comedians heckle you!

You never know who will swing by the Sidewalk Comedy show! Chicago’s hottest comics, Laugh Factory Headliners, and the Red Bull Wings Team may stop by to visit. Our Laugh Factory Social Media Team will be there to take pictures, record events, and maybe make you a star too!

Sidewalk Comedy is rocking all summer long, so don’t miss out on a free chance to relax, laugh, and win! There is no event like it, so come on down to Laugh Factory Chicago and make this a summer to remember!

About Laugh Factory Chicago:

Located at 3175 N. Broadway in the Lakeview East neighborhood, Laugh Factory Chicago is the fourth location founded by Jamie Masada, who opened the first comedy club to pay comics in 1979 Los Angeles, when he was still a teenager. Following a $5 million renovation of the former Lakeshore Theatre, the space seats 350 people, serves food from local restaurants and has a full bar. The club hosts charity shows every week and Masada is committed to giving back to the community. They have served food to the homeless every year on Christmas and Thanksgiving for the past decade. In addition to his love of philanthropy, Masada has been instrumental in launching the careers of many of today's biggest comics. The New York Daily News called him the "Real King of Comedy." His knowledge and expertise have made him a leading authority on all things comedy and his advice is highly regarded by the entertainment industry's top power brokers.
