October has Halloween. December has Christmas. But all November has to joke about is boring old Thanksgiving. What's a comedy theater to do? Chicago's Cornservatory is bucking the odds with a whole month of hilarious live programming leading up to Turkey Day. Dig into improv and sketch comedy with Bevvy & Friends, laugh it up with area comics as they compete for your love at the Standup Showcase Showdown, and even thrill to some jaw-dropping illusions at the sketch-magic-improv variety show We Are Handsome and You Look Thirsty. It's all BYOB, too, so get ready to crack one open as you crack up at the Corn Comedy-Palooza. Check out the description for the full November schedule.
We Are Handsome and You Look Thirsty: a refreshing variety show
Friday and Saturday November 6 and 7 at 8:00pm
Sit down, crack a bottle of wine, and relax as Handsome (The Original Improv Gladiators – Season 25) massage your comedy muscles with sketch, magic, improv, and a whole lotta fun.
