Performed by a wily band of funnypeople, Bye Bye Liver: The Chicago Drinking Play is an interactive sketch-comedy show that celebrates the consumption of adult beverages. Each performance flows through a series of vignettes parodying the intoxicating world of drinking and male-female relations. From the infamous women’s restroom to that friend who should never drink, the familiar perils of barhopping are broken down by the Bye Bye Liver players. Interactive games played during the show, including Never Have I Ever and Would You Rather, sledgehammer the fourth wall, fusing the estranged cast and audience into a chummy bunch of suds-soaked pals. All shows are for those 21 and older, in accordance with the U.S. Declaration of Independence.
Now 5-plus years old, Bye Bye Liver¬ is the latest export from the Chicago comedy scene to have runs in cities such as Boston, Nashville, and Toronto. The Chicago Tribune heralded it a “smashed hit” for being at the forefront of fusing theater and bar into a single super-setting that lets audiences have more fun than making prank calls from the Oval Office phone.
