Miley Cyrus. Jacob the Bar Mitzvah boy. Ms. Meadows the enthusiastic poetry teacher. These are just a few of the many characters Vanessa Bayer has embodied during her tenure on Saturday Night Live, a job she landed after studying and performing at Chicago comedy institutions The Second City, The Annoyance, and iO. The Onion & A.V. Club’s 2nd Annual 26th Annual Comedy Festival sees her returning to her hometown for an evening of celebrity impressions and quirky characters, all infused with her signature congeniality. Her opening act, Michael Palascak, is also a local comic, one who’s become a late-night regular thanks to appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
