Comedy in Chicago is at its' peak with The Shit Show

Comedy in Chicago is at its' peak with The Shit Show

As we prepare to say goodbye to another month, it is, once again, time to say hello to The Shit Show.

The Shit Show, in case you do not know, is a free comedy showcase held the last Friday of every month at The Shambles. Though the show has been making waves for years here in Chicago, recently the show took control of the spotlight when they were  featured as a headlining act in the TBS Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.

Combine that exposure to the exposure the show has received from several local and national media outlets, and it is apparent that Ever Mainard and Rasa Gierstikas, the co-founders and co-hosts of the show, have a hit on their hand.

Of course, with all success comes change, and the July show is a prime example of that for The Shit Show. Ever Mainard is leaving the show, and Chicago, after Friday's performance. She is relocating to Los Angeles, where she will start planning the launch of The Shit Show LA.

To mark the end of Ever's reign in the comedy circles of Chicago, The Shit Show is hosting a Total Liquidation Show this Friday. This special farewell show features Ryan Walker, Danny Kallas, Liza Treger, Brian Henning, Charlier Rohrer, Rasa Gierstikas, and Keith Paeseland.

Aside from that awesome line-up, the show will also give you a chance to pick up some awesome bling.  With sponsors like Fireball Whisky , Revolution Brewing and Mingle Around, the show is quick to pass our free prizes and shots to the audience.

So, if you are over 21, make sure you get ready to laugh your ass off, and make your way to 2050 West Division this Friday night at 8:00 for The Shit Show.

You will be glad you did.
