HOLY POP CULTURE DAMAGE, BATMAN!!! We’ll be the musical act for the best political satire comedy troop in Chicago. Democracy Burlesque (where unfortunately only the politics are naked) has not only a full, original show of timely and clever material; but also has a featured charity or “Cause-Celeb,” a stand-up comedian; and a Musical Guest (that’s us) at every show. This is some funny shit you all.
This will be a 3-piece; and we also have vocals again. We’re diving into some other folk traditions now, going towards something that you haven’t seen us do before; and you may have never heard anything like it. But, after all, we do enjoy approaching music that way >;0]
Craft brews on tap are all brewed by the venue. This is seriously a treat.
Show starts at 7 pm.
Schlock & Awe!
Justin Bieber gets in touch with his feminine side. Secrets of the cultural illuminati are exposed. Puppets are violated and we can’t stop talking about Game of Thrones either.
Chicago’s only political sketch comedy company is proud to present “Schlock & Awe: Uncultured Sketch Comedy About Pop Culture.” It’s a full frontal assault on the news we love to hate, and hate to admit we follow. Assuage your guilt for knowing the sex of Kim & Kanye’s baby but not your own Congressman. The Huffington Post is covering it, so it must be news right? So come out, grab a Dirty Politick martini and join us for an evening of cultural schadenfreude and fun!
SCHLOCK & AWE! features World Premiere sketches written by Democracy Burlesque’s stable of writers and actors – along with Musical Guests, Stand Up Comedy and more!
Doors open at 7 pm.
