Cute show! It's in the large second floor of Fizz Bar & Grill.
The stage is a bar and they do various skits of the way people act when they are drinking. Parts are audience participation, but during this the actors are very nice about it, meaning that they don't pick on people and embarrass them. The actors were funny and seemed to all get along well. Most of the show is improvised, or at least it seems that way.
Seats are arranged around little tables that have drink menus on them for buckets of beer (4 beers for $14)and pitchers of cocktails. I'm not sure if you can order a mixed drink or something that isn't on the menu - we went with the drink pitchers. You pay when they bring each round rather than getting a bill at the end.
Overall it was a very fun show with good drinks. We went to the 8:00 show, and the special at Fizz on Fridays is half-price appetizers from 6:00 - 8:00 so we made a cheap meal of appetizers before the show, then had Goldstar tickets for the show, so it turned out to be a cheap evening out.

It was a fun show. As the other reviewer had mentioned if you go in for the half priced appetizers before the show you can make it a pretty cheap night. Definitely worth the money. Be sure to get a bucket of beer before the show though.
Bye Bye Liver is a series of outrageous sketches, all centered around Chicago’s favorite pastime: drinking. We all have that one friend who is never-ever allowed to go near liquor again. Or maybe it’s the girl who has one martini too many and just can’t shut up about her ex-boyfriend. Perhaps it’s that horrible moment when you realize you have to break the seal right now…but the line for the bathroom hasn’t moved in half an hour. Whatever it is, we’ve all been there, and it’s all spoofed right here in Bye Bye Liver.
You must be 21 to drink and 21 to laugh at this show!
About the Ticket Supplier: The Pub Theater
The friendliest theatre in Chicago invites you to enjoy a show or two that “puts the efforts of Saturday Night Live to shame (Chicago SunTimes),” where “The modus operandi seems to be coming up with the sort of ideas that seem brilliant when you’re smashed at 2 a.m. and then…actually making them work. (The Examiner)” If you’re thirsty, take advantage of the excellent drink deals at the full bar, especially if you’re a fine whiskey or craft beer lover. With any show on any night of the week, it’s “impossible to not have a good time (TimeOut Chicago).”
