A cold and rainy night didn’t keep the crowd from packing the house at the hot River North nightclub, Untitled, for the annual Laugh Out Loud comedy show hosted by Chicago Bear Israel Idonije and former all-pro Chicago Bear Jerry Azumah to benefit their respective charities. The night included some of the top comedic talent around and by the end of the night, my sides hurt from laughing so much at the show’s co-hosts WGCI’s Leon Rogers and Brian Babylon, along with featured comedians Damon Williams (of BET’s "Comic View" who also served as the opening act for the legendary Kings of Hollywood Comedy Tour), Adrienne Irmer (Perri’s darling daughter), Ali Clayton, Tony Scolfied, Ron Baker, Jr. (handsome brother of Ryan), Mitch Hurley, Erica Clark and Willie Lynch among others.
The fun-filled party began with a VIP reception in the club’s exclusive bar area behind the main stage. Here, guests got a chance to meet the hosts and mingle with the comedians as well as enjoy a fabulous buffet. Seen on the scene were NBA star Antoine Walker, Trista Phillips, Jason McKie, Kelley Speck, Erica Clark, KISS-FM's Nina Chantelle and Angi Taylor, Les Coney, Alayna and DC Crenshaw and Saran Dunmore to name a few.
