The Comedy Bar

Grand Opening on Valentine’s Weekend on February 13 & 14 Features Chicago’s Stand Up Comedy Headliners Sean Flannery, Derick Lengwenus, Russell Williamson, Kevin Williams, Sean White and Ali Clayton.

CHICAGO (February 2015) – The Comedy Bar, formerly located at 157 W. Ontario, is now under new ownership and located at Gino’s East River North’s third floor in the historic building at 500 N. LaSalle Street.

The grand opening will take place on Valentine’s weekend, Friday, February 13 and Saturday, February 14, with showings at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tickets are $20 per person; or the grand opening Valentine’s package is $55 per couple, which includes two tickets, two glasses of Prosecco, and a dessert.

The star-studded grand opening headliners include: Sean Flannery, voted best stand-up comedian in Chicago in 2010 by the Chicago Reader; Chicago resident Derick Lengwenus, winner of the Audience Choice Award at the TBS Just For Laughs Festival; Russell Williamson, a New Jersey native who has made himself a household name in the Chicago comedy scene since moving here in 2005; Kevin Williams, who once served in the Army and United States Coast Guard where he won “The Funniest Person in the Military” Comedy Contest; Sean White, named one of the 2014 “Top 16 Chicago Comics” by Chicago magazine; and Ali Clayton, whose stand-up and solo characters have been featured in the Cape Fear Comedy Fest, Laugh Track Comedy Fest, Chicago Women’s Funny Fest and TBS Just For Laughs Chicago.

Located in the upbeat River North district, The Comedy Bar first opened in 2011 and still sets the bar for stand-up in the city. The original concept, still intact with the same booking and operations leadership, was to create a quality stand-up comedy venue in the heart of the city, easily accessible to tourists and locals, and with affordable ticket prices and no drink minimums. Its first booking was a Comics to Watch showcase presented by Comedy Central and the New York Comedy Festival. The Comedy Bar has been featured as one of Chicago magazine’s “Best Comedy Clubs in Chicago.”

“Deep dish pizza, craft beer and comedy are quintessential Chicago,” says Noah Himmel, Vice President and third generation of family owners of the legendary Gino’s East. “With The Comedy Bar now on the third floor of Gino’s East River North, and Gino’s Brewing Company now open, we are excited to offer all three Windy City staples under one roof.”

The venue is now housed on the spacious third floor at 500 N. LaSalle which features a performance stage; a full bar and Gino’s Brewing Company and craft beer menu; and signature Gino’s East River North appetizers including Deep Dish Nachos, Homemade Spinach Mozzarella Sticks, Jumbo Chicken Wings and more. Guests may enjoy deep dish pizza prior to or after the comedy shows on the first and second floor dining rooms. The space accommodates 160 guests and is great for private events, corporate- and tour- group outings.
