Kill All Comedy
You can’t swing a rubber chicken without hitting the two-year-old collective Kill All Comedy. The group of Chicago young guns seems to be everywhere these days: The upstarts have two albums, multiple podcasts and video shorts, a monthly residency at the Upstairs Gallery, and a weekly show at Quenchers Saloon. They’ve even gotten a few of their members in front of SNL talent scouts. The fuss, in case you’re wondering, is over remarkably fearless, unshackled, and often jaw-dropping solo, sketch, and standup comedy—all masterminded by the producers Joey Dundale and Steph Cook. Predicted next act? Fame, glory, and sold-out shows. Catch them on August 7 at Upstairs Gallery.
