The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival

May 30, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - June 1, 2013 @ 11:55 pm

| $10

The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival celebrates all that is the Chicago nerd comedy scene. From Stand –Up to Improv, nerds will unite for one glorious weekend in Chicago to laugh, pay homage, and perhaps worship their favorite genres of nerdness.

Featuring performances by Improvised Star Trek, The Nerdologues, Plan 9 Burlesque, Yamato Potato Cannon (headed up by Jim Povolo of Team StarKid fame), Matt Griffo, The Hot Karl, Bri-Ko, and more!

“This festival is essential for the nerd community of Chicago,” says festival producer, Katie Johnston-Smith. “We nerds need to gather together to laugh with our brethren, and forget that The Big Bang Theory on CBS is how our parents explain us to their friends.”

The CHICAGO NERD COMEDY FESTIVAL runs May 30 – June 1, 2013 at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont. The Festival’s performance dates and times are Thursday at 7, 8, 9, and 10pm, Friday at 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11pm, and Saturday at 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11pm. Tickets are $10 each and will be on sale Monday, May 6, 2013. To purchase tickets call 773-327-5252 or visit www.stage773.com.
