Born in the summer of 2005 (at the back of a bar that no longer even exists),Chicago Underground Comedy has showcased some of the most clever, innovative minds in the business, while providing an exciting home for comedy fans who want juuuuust a little more spice with their order of "Have You Ever Noticed's".
This alt-comedy haven revels in its reputation as a comic's playground, and has no regrets for any of the silly goofs, wacky antics,or plain-old tomfoolery it may have gotten into after a few drinks over the years.
From traditional stand-up, to sketch comedy, to characters and things you couldn't even begin to classify, ChUC (as it's commonly referred) is THE show to see on Tuesday nights.
So bring $5 and a few of your raddest pals over to the Beat Kitchen, and we'll do the rest.
It's a cool show. Check us out.
"ChUC has always been the place to perform the comedy you WANT to perform, and to perform for an audience that is open to all sorts of performance, and a comedian who says the word "perform" too much in his quotes. Cool? Or different. I can do a hundred if you want." -T.J. Miller
"When I come back home to Chicago, I go out of my way to make sure my trip includes one Tuesday night, every time, so I can stop by ChUC. When friends from home want to come see me, Chicago Underground is the show I always point them to." - Kevin McCaffrey
"What is there to say about ChUC other than it's a comedy show done the right way in the right space. Fantastic comics, welcoming audience. Always great." - Kyle Kinane
