Best comedy venue
Comedy producer John Stoops managed a feat that seemed impossible for nearly 60 years: He brought improv back to its birthplace in Hyde Park. And he did it with a focus on black, brown, and queer comedians. Don’t miss the Saturday showcase, The Green Room, a crowd favorite hosted by Dave Helem and Felonious Munk.
