Since this is a live event and seats need to be filled, if you do not arrive by showtime, your seat will be sold to the people on the waiting list. No refunds available.

Online ticket sales end an hour before each show. Tickets may be available at the door for $15, but probably not because we often sell out.

ABOUT THE SHOW:

Comedians You Should Know (CYSK) is a stand-up comedy showcase which started in Chicago in 2008 at the now-defunct, Fizz Bar and Grill. The show quickly gained praise from fans and comedians alike for its unwavering commitment to presenting only the funniest Chicago comedians and visiting guests from both the alt and mainstream comedy scenes.

In 2010, they moved to a favorite downtown watering hole, Timothy O'Toole's Pub. Since then, the show has become a destination from anyone around the Chicago area. From hipsters to yuppies to suburbanites, to the occasional homeless person, anyone seeking the best in Chicago stand-up comedy knows, CYSK is the place to be!

In addition to their showcase, CYSK has produced a whopping 25 comedy albums in their room, many of them reaching the top of the iTunes comedy chart!

CYSK has gotten critical-acclaim from several media outlets, most notably The Onion A.V. Club who said: "...The genuine quality of talent on display is unrivaled in Chicago."

In 2015, CYSK expanded their weekly showcase to Los Angeles and then to New York City in 2016, making it the only comedian-produced, stand-up comedy showcase to be featured in the three biggest cities in the country!

CYSK features a DIFFERENT LINE-UP every week and thus makes it a must-see event again and again!
