The Comedy Shrine serves up satisfying chuckle feasts with a bevy of productions showcasing some of Chicagoland's foremost comedic talent. The club’s improv gems include Whose Line?, which borrows the hit formula of ABC's Whose Line is it Anyway?, blending improv and audience interaction into a pleasing mélange of guffaw-worthy fun. Pimprov extracts giggles from the continuing story of four pimps accidentally enrolled in an improv class. The Superstars of Stand-Up shows bring in nationally renowned comedians to ply their mirthful wares, while the Best of the Midwest Comedy Showcase gathers laugh wranglers from throughout the Chicago area to entertain show-goers with stellar standup skills, giving funny bones the catharsis they need to grow up strong. Guests can check the schedule to plot future laughs around less enjoyable engagements, such as a snotty cousin’s birthday dinner or a neighbor’s dog’s high-school-graduation ceremony.
The Comedy Shrine Theater
The Comedy Shrine draws out unstifled snorts with standup sets and performances from a house company of improvisers culled from laugh institutions such as Second City, iO, and ComedySportz. Inspired by the hit TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Whose Line? puts together an ensemble of professional improvisers for a night of word games and spontaneously created scenarios and characters. Whose Line? The Naughty Show spices up the proceedings with raunchy profanity, spicy innuendo, and adults-only humor. Billed as an interactive drinking game, the ad-libbed proceedings of The Bar Show govern quaffs more effectively than paying a friend to throw pinches of salt into your mouth. The Raw Talent Showcase gives up-and-comers a chance in the spotlight, impressing audiences with fresh material.
