Cooper's restaurant and bar across the street is handy, and the food and beer are good and reasonably priced.

We loved it! It was very funny! I am hearing impaired so, this was perfect for me! I wish more shows were like this. I would recommend it for adults as well as kids and teenagers. Great fun on a budget. Thanks Goldstar!

Lots of fun. Three expressive actors put on a playful show for us. Giggles at first, building into huge laughs as the evening progresses.

There was a wide age range in the audience, from schoolkids on up, and everyone was having a good time....continued

I would recommend this show for parents with teenagers. It's a good family outing. You can bring younger viewers, but they may not catch the humor. My son got to be part of the show...funny!

Quotes & Highlights

“The all-silent, G-rated Bri-Ko is proof that a group needs neither words nor adult content to be hysterical.” —Time Out New York
“Must-see” —Chicago Magazine
“If I were you, I’d do everything in my power to get a ticket.” —Chicago Tribune
“The stage is a treasure trove of hidden treasures and gimcrackery and the players inhabit it with zeal and gusto.  Adults will be amused, kids will be downright flabbergasted.”  —Time Out Chicago, Critic’s Pick
“…in terms of originality, Bri-Ko has no local peer.” —Chicago Tribune
“…75 minutes of generally hilarious physical comedy…at a level all ages can appreciate…” —Chicago Reader
“Bri-Ko pares everything down to make a wonderful concoction of mayhem and gleeful insanity.”  —Chicago Theatre Blog


An inventive adventure of clowning, gags and gadgetry, where the simplest tasks become elaborate, hilarious processes — without a word spoken.

All silent. All funny. In a Bri-Ko performance, the simplest tasks become inventive adventures of clowning, gags and gadgetry. The three performers enact silent scenes in which easy processes are made as difficult and elaborate as possible through sketch, acting and clowning. Bri-Ko’s appeal is universal. Anyone of almost any age, speaking any language, with any cultural background can understand and appreciate the show. It’s family-friendly, but not a children’s show: bring your kids or bring your date!
