“Southside Pregnancy Center offers help and hope to those affected by unplanned pregnancy and promotes sexual purity in an effort to preserve life.” Quote from their Facebook page.
Kelsie was first up and here is a quote from Kelsie’s website that explains her better than I could. “Kelsie Huff is a Chicago based comedian performing at venues such as Zanies, Chicago’s Laugh Factory, UP Comedy, Mayne Stage, Comedy on State (Madison) and throughout the suburbs. She has also performed at several comedy festivals including, New Orleans, North Carolina, Boston Women in Comedy Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Chicago Funny Female Festival and Chicago Comedy Exposition.
Huff’s humor has “an infectious joyousness that makes you happy to be alive” and she “makes confident choices and creates loud, defined characters that are both unbearable and hilarious”. Kelsie has been described as a “Midwestern American Intangible Cultural Treasure” who makes the audience feel as though they have been transported from a dark comedy club to a private slumber party.”
There you have it, she was fantastic, and I had a hard time keeping the camera steady because of my laughter.
Kelsie did an excellent job of interacting with the crowd and getting them involved in her routine, she was very funny and was able to entertain without the use of profanity or explicit material.
Next to take the stage was Comedy Sportz Chicago, here is a quote from their website. “ComedySportz is the longest running short form improv comedy show in Chicago. Our unique interactive show enables guests to drive the show with their input and vote for the red team or blue team with their laughter. The referee keeps track of the score on the Applause-o-meter and the team with the most laughs wins at the end of the show. One thing that sets us apart from other comedy clubs is our clean entertainment, which is suitable for guests under and over the age of 21.”
I do love some good improve and this team of 8 people kept the audience’s attention and kept things moving at a good pace.
My night was complete with sore ribs from laughter, so with that said I will rate these performers and this event with five tickets.
