Chicago’s comedy community continues to get stronger as more products of such schools (Annoyance, iO, and Second City) have been making more mainstream appearances on television & film recently. As new faces have been hitting the stages around town, vets are still pumping out new material to keep in stride of simply making people laugh.
You may recognize the faces in these pictures and remember that they made past appearances in the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival and the Just For Laughs Festival. Now these misfit minorities are back with a new name, a new point of view, and a new production company. The Mental Notion Society is proud to announce the 3-week run of the Chicago Transit Minorities for April at Stage773. Tickets are on sale now!
