Daily Rehearsal: Raising funds for comedians without insurance

September 27, 2012

Frankenstein opens this weekend at City Lit. You probably know what this one's about.

- Zanies is giving all ticket sales in their Chicago, St. Charles and Rosemont locations to the John Fox Memorial Fund on October 4. Fox was a Chicago comedian who died of complications from colon cancer in May of this year; the fund gives cancer check-ups to comedians who don't have insurance. The featured performer in Chicago is Nick Vatterott; St. Charles is Bret Ernst and Rosemont is Jimmy Schubert. You can read more about Fox here.

Writers’ Theatre is adding two weeks of Hamlet performances, but the show will definitely close on November 25.
