  • The Laugh Factory searches the entire city of Chicago and compiles the greatest lineup of stand up comedy imaginable. Week after week, these titans of comedy deliver the best local showcase in the city. Chicago's Best is never the same, it's never boring, and it's always hilarious. Their well rehearsed sets are sure to make you laugh, PLUS they live in our city and joke about it so it's super relatable! Come see what makes Chicago the funniest city on the planet!
  • *You can purchase tickets for several people and multiple shows this night through the link. No physical tickets will be issued. Your name will be on a list at the door and all tickets will be under the purchaser's name. Groups can be sat together if arriving together.
  • Please Note: These shows are for ages 18+ w/ ID. If you show up after start time you will not be able to enter. There is a 2 drink minimum per person per show (non-alcoholic or alcoholic). Drinks are reasonably priced, and a comedy show is funnier with a few drinks, so this shouldn't be an issue with how cheap our tickets are 🙂 No refunds or exchanges but tickets can be transferred.
  • 7:30 PM - Drink, Date, Laugh! Drink Date Laugh is a one-of-a-kind stand-up comedy showcase/game show at the Chicago Laugh Factory that engages the audience by exploring their dating history and love lives. Short questionnaires are given out before the show (all in good fun) that the team uses to briefly interview selected crowd members (seriously, all in good fun). At the end of the show, three lucky audience members are picked to participate in a live game show to win a $50 gift certificate to a local spot. On top of all that, the show features stand-up sets from some of the best comedians in Chicago.
  • 9:30 PM - Young Hustle Show! This is a Stand-Up Comedy show comprised of the best comedians in Chicago as well as comedians from Comedy Central, HBO and Conan. Every show leaves people coming back for more.
  • 11:30 PM - Low Key Funny Friday Night Variety Show! This monthly show will shine light on some of Chicago's emerging talent in stand-up, improv/ sketch comedy, and up and coming music artists. Break away from the basic format of comedy shows and experience a vibe of music, sketch, and lowkey still crack up all night!
