Just a little reminder - my friend K-Rock, who writes the Chicago standup blog Five Drink Miniumum, has corralled some of Chicago's finest female standups into a coalition called Spitfire, and their first show is this Thursday at 7:30 at T's Bar at 5025 N. Clark Street.
Come on, their mission statement says they want to "spread joy and laughter." How can you not want to be a part of that? That's like saying "no thanks" to a visit to the Fireworks, Candy, and Puppy Dog Store!
From the Spitfire website: "SpitFire
is a Chicago-based collective of female stand-up comedians committed to
spreading joy and laughter throughout Chicago and beyond. Using our
straight honesty, creativity and very colorful imaginations we provide
an experience you will not forget! Our experience reaches as far as
improv, sketch, radio, burlesque, and other performance art. We are
available for variety shows, private parties, and fundraising events.
Sometimes we ask our friends in improv, sketch, burlesque, and other
performance art to join us. We are ready and able to provide laughter
wherever it may be needed. Spitfire is also a vehicle for providing
support to fellow female comics, inside and out of the Chicago-area."
