Sinbad

Footage from the special Where U Been?

For more than two decades, comic powerhouse Sinbad has courted laughs with a clean standup style that teases the hilarity out of quotidian activities, earning him a spot among Comedy Central’s Top 100 Greatest Standups of All Time. Eschewing profanity, the comic zeroes in on the common everyday experience, quipping about relationships, ordering at McDonald’s, and the outrageous price hikes of rocket fuel. Sinbad amps up the humor of simple situations with a malleable face that exaggerates expressions and a confident delivery that vocalizes inner thoughts to hilarious effect. Unlike knock-knock jokes and adaptations of Thomas Pynchon novels, the funnyman’s style translates well to the small and silver screen, leading to appearances in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Celebrity Apprentice, and Jingle All the Way.

The Chicago Theatre

The beaming vertical letters of "C-H-I-C-A-G-O" ascend six stories high on a sign that seems to be the establishing shot for any movie set in the Windy City. Tourists and natives often stand outside snapping pictures of the marvelous marquee, where the biggest names in music, theatre, and comedy are writ large under a miniature replica of Paris's Arc de Triomphe. The Parisian aesthetic continues inside The Chicago Theatre’s grand lobby, which recalls the Royal Chapel at Versailles with its gallery promenades. The staircase ascending to the Grand Balcony resembles that of the Paris Opera House, rounding out a French Baroque architecture that would cause Louis XIV to do a spit-take. Inside the seven-story-high, 3,600 seat auditorium, terra-cotta tiles, crystal chandeliers, and luxurious drapes give audiences visual overtures before every show.

As vital to Chicago as hot dogs and mustard fire hoses, The Chicago Theatre was America's first munificent movie palace upon its 1921 unveiling, where it was declared "The Wonder Theatre of the World." Beyond its silver screenings, the theatre became a beacon for live entertainment, as artists such as John Phillip Sousa, Duke Ellington, and Benny Goodman filled its first 40 years with oompah and swing. After a multi-million dollar restoration in 1986, the landmark venue remains the heart of art in the city, attracting the world's most popular entertainers to its stage almost every evening of the year.
