Inside Stage 773’s recently renovated confines, two veteran Chicago comedy troupes stretch the boundaries of the sketch form in surprising directions. The ladies of Off Off Broadzway create a slightly twisted take on a vintage burlesque show—complete with feathers, sequins, and double entendres—while adding a modern sense of blue humor and technology-enabled quadruple entendres. In their latest revue, the five bustier-clad dancers belt out tongue-in-cheek tunes as their mustachioed ringmaster, Andy Drodgenous, lobs suggestive zingers at performers and audience members alike. The Chicago Reader calls the long-running show a night of “sloppy, R-rated fun” with an emcee who achieves “the perfect mix of crude and charming.”

Brian Posen, Brian Peterlin, and Tim Soszko are the members of Bri-Ko, a silent sketch-comedy troupe that uses clowning and intricately choreographed slapstick to propel universally relatable scenes. Goofy hats and messy props in hand, they painstakingly carry out basic tasks with as little efficiency as possible before all-ages crowds in an act that Chicago Magazine describes as “lighthearted comedy that doesn’t take itself too seriously.” The sketches often unfold against a soundtrack of giddy tunes by Wilson Phillips or Electric Light Orchestra.

Stage 773

A cornucopia of sketch comedy performances spills from Stage 773, revamped in 2011 with a full-scale renovation that created four intimate stages from the initial too-intimate 773 stages. Longtime Chicago performers Brian Posen, Jill Valentine, and Brian Peterlin helm the theater, where they host the annual Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival every January to often sold-out crowds. They also draw in local acts such as dating-themed troupe The Cupid Players and hold a weekly open-mic night called SMUSH, which welcomes sketch-, improv-, and standup-comedy acts.


Though Stage 773 sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
