Prepare yourself! On Tuesday May 22nd, Queer Comedy at Zanies must once again pay tribute to the elder gods with a horrific competition of wit and endurance! May the odds ever be in your favor!
OutLoud Chicago, TheQu.co and TheLStop.org present… Queer Comedy (Contest) at Zanies: Season 2! Hosted by Ever Mainard (TBS Just For Laughs) and headlined by Brad Loekle (TruTV’s “World’s Dumbest,” VH1, MTV, Oxygen, Logo, Here! TV, Sirius XM.)
Last season, out of ten competitors, only three survived/placed at the Queer Comedy (Contest) at Zanies. On May 22nd, the 3 champions have to defend their honor against three new challengers. Former winners Joel Kim Booster, Caitlin Bergh and Homer Marrs enter into mortal combat with each other and new contenders Archer Coe, Rhea Butcher and The Puterbaugh Sisterz. Who will be victorious? You’ll help decide!
Winners will be decided by audience vote as well as our special celebrity judges. Every audience member gets one vote. Each judge will rank the 6 contestants from 1st through 6th with a weighted vote. The first three places will be featured in the Queer Comedy @ Zanies: Pride Edition on Tuesday June 19th. And the first place winner will receive interviews from media sponsors OutLoud Chicago, TheQu.co and TheLStop.org.
Flying in from NYC is judge and headliner Brad Loekle, from OutLoud Chicago is The Sarcastic Squad’s Michelle Rene Thompson as Oprah, from The Qu.Co is Tony Soto and from TheLStop.org is Casey Larwood. Following the contest, Brad Loekle will feature a headlining set and preview of his extended set at Laugh Track at Sidetrack May 24th.
Presented by OutLoud Chicago, The L Stop and The Qu.co. OutLoud Chicago strives to bring queer entertain to mainstream Chicago. TheLStop.org is your one stop for everything lesbian in Chicago. The Qu.co is a multi-media website for queer artists to showcase their work to an audience of like minded people; where their sexuality informs the conversation instead of restricting it. Queer Comedy at Zanies promises to continue showing that no matter if the comedians or audience members are queer or straight, laughter knows no sexuality.
OutLoud Chicago, The L Stop and The Qu.co present Queer Comedy (Contest) at Zanies: Season 2. Tuesday May 22nd at 7:30pm at Zanies Comedy Club 1548 N Wells. Tickets are $10 in advance http://www.chicago.zanies.com/ or $15 at the door. Audience members must be ages 21 or over. Two item minimum.
