“Congrats on Your Success” A Monthly Free, BYOB Comedy Show in Logan Square
Free, BYOB show features Chicago’s best as well as up and coming stand up comics.
CHICAGO, IL, November 19, 2013 – For over a year, Congrats on Your Success has been bringing free, BYOB comedy from the city’s best stand up comedians to a used bookstore in Logan Square. Boasting consistently packed turnouts and providing free beer courtesy of Powell Brew House to all audience members and performers, Congrats’s six producers look forward to continuing their success with their December 5th show. This and every Congrats show takes place from 7-9pm, every 1st Thursday at Uncharted Books - 2620 N. Milwaukee.
Congrats on Your Success’s producers - Bill Bullock, Justin Covington, Sonia Denis (co-host of Cole’s open mic every Wednesday in Logan Square), Odinaka Ezeokoli, Rebecca O’Neal (castmember at The Lincoln Lodge, writer whose work has been featured in Vanity Fair and on Gawker), and Charlie Rohrer (Zanies Rosemont) have this to say about the show: “People come to Congrats over and over because of the fun atmosphere. Not only are we giving them free comedy from super diverse and hilarious performers in a weird book store, we get them drunk, play games, and do giveaways all the time - and there’s Ramona - the Uncharted Books dog. They tell their friends and Congrats grows every month. There’s no other comedy show like this in the city!”
Congrats on Your Success’s December 5th show features opener Mike Timlin, as well as Shinebox Comedy’s Stephanie Hasz and Jason Earl Folks, and will be headlined by Comedy Central’s Liza Treyger. Congrats producers Bill Bullock and Rebecca O’Neal will be performing and hosting, respectively.
