Comic quintet Your Funniest Friends induces cackle fits from audiences during intimate Saturday-night specials, showcasing an offbeat brand of standup and sketch comedy in the swanky retro setting of The Joynt. With high-comedy credentials and the inability to party lightly, Andy Kaufman Award finalist Joe Fernandez, Improv regular and iO grad Megan Gailey, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! veteran Lane Pieschel join forces with comic podcaster Matt Riggs and jokeslinger Jeff Steinbrunner to concoct absurdist and innovative humor that leaves Sunday-morning throats raw from guffawing. Friendly upcoming special guests include charming clown Mike Lebovitz, absurdist intellectual Adam Burke, and acerbic funnyman James Fritz, who was voted Best Standup in Chicago by the Chicago Reader and a panel of rubber chickens wearing monocles.
