Queer Comedy at Zanies: PRIDE
The critically acclaimed Queer Comedy at Zanie’s Season 2 continues featuring dual headliners Candy Lawrence (Chicago Women’s Funny Festival, TBS Just for Laughs,) Matteo Lane (Laugh Track at Sidetrack,) Host Adam Guerino (The Sarcastic Squad,) and the winners of the Queer Comedy (Contest) at Zanies season 2: Rhea Butcher (Cole’s Open Mic, Kind of Blue) Lisa Laureta (The Laugh Factory, Chicago Underground Comedy) and Joel Kim Booster (New Colony Theater, Zanies.)
Queer Comedy at Zanies has been featured in Timeout Chicago, The Redeye, Metromix and Gaper’s Block, and showcases the best queer and straight comedians of the country who have appeared on Comedy Central, BET, TBS Just For Laughs and Last Comic Standing. Each show has continued to show that no matter if the comedians or audience members are queer or straight, laughter knows no sexuality.
OutLoud Chicago is a series created by Adam Guerino to bring queer entertainment to mainstream Chicago venues. The Qu.co’s mission is to create a multi-media website for queer artists to showcase their work to an audience of like minded people; where their sexuality informs the conversation instead of restricting it. TheLStop.org is your one-stop shop for everything lesbian in Chicago.
