Here is your May agenda if you're stalking me:
5/11 Lola Balatro opening for "Why The Long Facebook?" Stage 773. 10pm. $15
5/15 Stand-up at Hug City. 9pm. Racine Plumbing Bar. 2642 N. Lincoln. FREE!
5/22 Stand-up at Chicago Underground Comedy. 9:30 pm. Beat Kitchen 2100 W. Belmont. $5
Grab a beer and listen to all these Lola Balatro tunes, wouldja? Couple deep tracks you might not know. Some I used in Ped Crossing. "Access (To Your Heart)" and "Basement Head" are the best musically and lyrically, I think, but we basically never play them live because I guess they're too subtle? Maybe that's why I like them more...Also notice how different each of the guitar solos are... Safe to say Cork can play real good. Did I mention it's on iTunes? It's on iTunes.
Chicago-folk, Friday, April 13 we'll be screening the PED CROSSING series, along with the 12 minute finale at (where else?) The Playground Theater . The night starts with some stand-up comedy from some great comedians, Adam Burke and Junior Stopka, who can also be seen in the finale. $10, BYOB. 3209 N. Halsted. Fun to be shared. The finale will go online April 17.
_Thanks for visiting, person!
Please watch PED CROSSING!
Comedian Paul Thomas’s satiric mind emerged from the pandemic unbowed, leading to Intimate and Appropriate, an incisive collection of scenes steeped in the selfie-righteousness of a country that has lost its mind. With grounded characters and the logic of an ancient Midwestern philosopher, Thomas delicately stomps through the “mine” field of identity, language, and recycle bins, putting a hall of mirrors up to a narcisstocracy that kinda seems to wanna offend itself.
DECEMBER 8th and 9th 8PM
