We ate beforehand at Thai Aroma a couple blocks away (don't recommend), but the food and drinks are competitively priced inside the venue. Just make sure you get there a little bit early and ask for a table in front of you.The Second City's Incomplete Guide to Everything dining • Oct 08 2014 star this tip starred

I would highly recommend this show for a refreshingly creative and intellectually stimulating evening. Upon entry I saw Greg Proop's walking around the room greeting his audience, with handshakes and one-to-one conversation; as though welcoming us to his home. His show is full of intellectual banter and political commentary. He Is the Smartest Man in the room.

Great service and friendly staff. This is one of the better comedy clubs in Chicago. I'm out in Los Angeles as I write this message, and UP! is very reminiscent of the old-school comedy clubs out here like the Improv. Well done, folks.

It’s just Proops and you. There’s no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at small table and chair setup with a single microphone. Then he’s off. An hour of great conversation that flies by at a break neck clip. He crams the feeling of a great two-way conversation into the lecture-style format of a one-way conversation.
Part professorial, part crazed comedian, Proops forms the show around his talent and passions. The show flows like a love letter to tangents. The Proopcast has been to Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, London, Paris, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco, Dublin and off the coast of St. Martin in the Carribean. Now you must fall.
Be there and experience joy for once in your life.
