More Good PR For Chicago Comedy
Dan and I entertained a Chicago Tribune reporter and photographer last night at ChUC. The writer, Glenn Jeffers, is doing a story about the increasingly reputable stand-up scene in Chicago, the effect of breakout stars like some of the Blerds, the exodus cycle (we seem to be at the end of one right now), and so on. He also brought a photographer who, it turns out, went to high school with Dan. Glenn chatted with Jared Logan and Fay Canale at length after interviewing me and Dan and I saw him chatting with K-Rock, the walking human encyclopedia of Chicago comedy, on my way out the door. He seemed really interested in his subject matter, and we also pointed him in the direction of the Lincoln Lodge and the Edge Comedy shows, so I'm sure the article will be awesome.
