Comedy Night!

Friday, October 7th, 2016, 7:30pm
Grace Performing Arts Center

Tickets: Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door.

Four stand-up comedians from Chicago light up the Festival 56 stage. The evening of R-rated comedy features Allison Dunne, Sohrab Forouzesh, Rob Johnson, and Jordan Kulow. Dunne and Forouzesh open the evening with side-splitting sets of stand-up comedy. After intermission, Johnson and Kulow, members of the improv group Not From Here, present their routine, half sketch/half improv, a technique that keeps the comedians on their toes and the audience on the edge of their seats. "Kulow's impressions are spot-on and Johnson's goofiness is infectious," writes Chicago Reader.
