    Lincoln Lodge Comedy Showcase

    (2)
    Now in its fourteenth season, "The Lincoln Lodge" stand-up comedy and variety showcase plays every Friday at Chicago's classic North Side diner, the Lincoln Restaurant. In addition to The Lodge's rotating cast of emcees, a fresh line-up of stand-up comedians and a variety/music act is featured each week. The show's mission is to showcase Chicago's finest up-and-coming and touring comedians and past performers include Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live), T.J. Miller (Carpoolers), Marc Maron (WTF Podcast), Janeane Garofalo (Saturday Night Live), Natasha Leggero (Last Comic Standing) and Kristen Schaal (Flight of The Conchords). Because the show's producers have created their own portable cabaret space inside this classic 1970s North Side diner, "The Lincoln Lodge" is arguably Chicago's most unique comedy experience!

Have you ever witnessed a stand-up comedian so bad that you wish you could just get them off the stage, but you don't have a cane to stick out and give em the old Vaudeville hook? The WIP Theater is here to make that happen. During Traffic Jam, an alternative stand-up comedy experience, you and the other members of the audience have total control of the comedians on stage. This open mic gives all amateurs a minimum of 3 minutes to impress the crowd, and then, based on your laughter, a stoplight will tell a comedian whether they should should keep it up, try a little bit harder, or just get off the stage! You're guaranteed to leave the theater with a smile on your face because, though the routines may be hilarious, the amount of fun you'll have is no joke!
