  • 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 🙂 Also, an 18% service fee (aka gratuity) will be applied to all drink tabs at payment to be given directly to service staff.
  • No refunds or exchanges but tickets can be transferred to friends.
  • 7:00 PM - The First Date! Chicago's funniest stand-up comedians hit the stage as one audience member is selected from the crowd to be our guest of honor. The First Date is a comical hunt for love. They are brought on stage but visually separated from the comedians. They are able to hear the jokes, but won't be able to see the faces telling them. After hearing all the sets, they'll have to decide which comic won them over. Once their selection is made, a first date happens live on stage. Will they find love or ask for separate checks? Singles & couples alike come to watch the chaos unfold.
  • 9:15 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!
  • 11:30 PM - Chicago's Best Standup! Chicago's Best Standup Comedy is back and will be better than ever. They always compile an amazing standup lineup for their late night comedy crowd. Some of Chicago's biggest local comedians will deliver something for every taste and style of standup comedy!
