Comedy Nights


Most, if not all great comedians started by doing stand up at local bars, coffee shops, and improv venues. Stand-up and improv comedy are entertaining performing arts, and there are likely many options too see comics near you. In Chicago, where Bevver began, we are spoiled with the Second City, Improv Olympics, Comedy Sportz, and a plethora of bars and venues to find a laugh. When it comes to comedy shows, boozing is often more encouraged than booing. The comedy show focuses on small venues where up and coming comedians would perform. Some larger venues may be included, but free/low cost shows where artists need your support are the focus!
