If the rainy weather has been bringing you down, we have the perfect way to lift your spirits. The Laugh Factory has been bringing joy to the community since 2011. They have shows seven nights a week, and the weekend shows never disappoint. Here is some weekend highlight shows happening, but be sure to visit the Laugh Factory website to see the full list of weekend performances.
We all have a dating history we may not necessarily be proud of. On Friday night, attend Drink! Date! Laugh! “A showcase/game show that engages the audience by exploring their dating history and love lives. Short questionnaires are given out before the show (all in good fun) that the team uses to briefly interview selected crowd members (seriously, all in good fun). At the end of the show, three lucky audience members are picked to participate in a live game show to win a $50 gift certificate to a local spot.” Drink! Date! Laugh! Is a fun and innocent way to poke some fun at the complicated world of dating. Hear some date night horror stories, rejections that cause secondhand embarrassment, or a love story for the ages. Who knows, YOU might be chosen to air your dirty laundry in front of a live audience (if you dare). The show kicks off at 7:30 pm.
Tickets to Drink! Date! Laugh! Are available here.
On Sunday Night, Chicago comedian Lavar Walker will be performing. Lavar Walker was born and raised in Chicago and has become a well-known comedian. If you’ve been watching Amy Schumer’s new Hulu show Life and Beth you may recognize Walker, as he plays the pharmacist! Perhaps you’ve seen him in Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All Star Comedy Jam – Atlanta back in 2013. He also started in the Netflix comedy Sneakerheads in the first season that aired in 2020.
Chicagoans now have the chance to see Walker live. “Working alongside the best comedians in the world Lavar has been destroying stages all across the country for the past 10 years, and Chicago is UP NEXT! Hosted by Em Brown and featuring Tony T this will be one of the TOP COMEDY SHOW OF THE WEEKEND!” The show begins at 7 pm.
Tickets to the Lavar Walker show are available here.
