Queer Comedy Turns 4!
Queer Comedy at Zanies celebrates 4 years of bringing queer-inclusive comedy to Chicago! The Anniversary show will take place on Tuesday July 21st, 8:30 pm at Zanies Comedy Club 1548 N Wells. Queer Comedy was the first show to bring ongoing queer standup comedy to a mainstream Chicago venue and has been going strong with national headliners, contests and tours. To celebrate 4 years, creator and host Adam Guerino welcomes a hilarious lineup of queer and queer-friendly comedians including Ali Clayton, Rachel McCartney, Sonia Denis, Marla Depew, Trannika Rex, Joseph William Reese and Julie Paradise.
Since its inception in 2011, Queer Comedy at Zanies has been named the Advocate.com‘s “9 LGBT Friendly Comedy Shows You Should Be Supporting,” featured in Chicago Tribune’s “Stand-up Scene,” Timeout Chicago‘s “Critic’s Pick,” The Redeye’s “Do” and included in Chicago Reader’s “The Agenda” and “Culture Vulture” with the praise “More, please.”
Comedians who have appeared at Queer Comedy at Zanies have also appeared on Conan, Comedy Central, Chelsea Lately, @Midnight, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, BET, TBS Just For Laughs, SXSW, Comedy Bang Bang, The Pete Holmes Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, A Night At The Apollo, and Last Comic Standing. The upcoming show will continue to show that whether audience members are queer or straight, laughter knows no sexuality.
