Chicago has long been a hotbed for improv and sketch comedy, but you don't have to go to The Second City to find laughs. Some of Chicago's funniest performers can be found in places like Stage 773 with comedy troupe GULP! Productions' show, Improv After Hours. GULP!'s current show features a new theme each week. The troupe's original core team, which includes Thomas Einstein, Amber Linde, Marie Maloney and Jacob Welch, is joined by special guests with a variety of comedic chops, from musical improv to sketch comedy, clowning and puppetry.

Great intimate venue for music and more! With only 350 seats, there isn't a bad spot in the house.
Love the design of the restaurant and concert hall.
Parking is easy with either valet or there's a number of street spaces nearby. Food is good
January 21, 2014: Honky Tonk Tuesdays with Wayne Hancock and Adam Lee
Wayne Hancock is that rare breed of traditionalist, one who imbues his retro obsessions with such high energy and passion that his songs never feel like museum pieces he's trying desperately to preserve. Hancock is most often compared to Hank Williams, and he can indeed be a hardcore honky tonker, but there's more to him than that: he also displays a genuine affinity for stomping rockabilly, Western swing, blues, and old-timey country à la Jimmie Rodgers. Plus, he also throws in the occasional pop standard in the manner of Willie Nelson's classic Stardust album. Hancock's devotion to classic country sounds, coupled with his strong aversion to the Nashville hit-making machine, earned him an ardent following among alternative country fans (from both the country and rock sides of the movement), as well as a fair amount of critical acclaim.
In the world of a working musician there is no greater constant than the road. Few know this better than Adam Lee, the road worn songwriter who offers an original spin on that classic country sound. Most recently, he has relocated to Chicago to join the cast of the Tony Award winning Million Dollar Quartet, portraying the Man in Black, Johnny Cash. At times both progressive and traditionalist, with the release of his sophomore album, 'When the Spirits Move Me,' Lee touches on many of the elements of a life dedicated to ramblin', and his basement baritone perfectly presents the highs and lows of life on the road. From wild nights in far away towns, to barroom brawls and goodbye kisses, he expertly explains the travelling life. All with the swingin' shuffles and country flair of your favorite 45s.
