We are usually taken to our seats and so you have no idea of where you will be seated. We ended right underneath the speakers and while we had an excellent view the incredibly loud volume during the transition between scenes made me wish I brought ear plugs. So look up when you get to your seat and ask for a different seat if you are next to the speakers. Some of you may not mind and that's ok too. Have fun.

Request center or left seating, away from piano up-front right, so you can hear comedians better.

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.

Description

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.
