The annual summer Bronzeville Comedy Showcase returns for year seven, presented by Vocalo 90.7 and emceed by comedian Brian Babylon, host of Vocalo’s Morning AMp and panelist on Chicago Public Media’s Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me!
The Bronzeville Comedy Showcase is a weekly comedy event where comedians try out new sets in front of great audiences. As a local comedy hub, the showcase, curated by Brian Babylon, brings together diverse comedians from across Chicagoland. "I have been doing this show for seven years now, and it’s always one of the best places to see comedy,” says host Babylon. “We decided last year to move the show to a bigger venue to accommodate the large crowd that has made this the best summertime comedy showcase. The Blanc gallery is a swanky art space with a large outdoor area that takes this comedy show to the next level. This is gearing up to be the best summer to date.”
Performances will be held in the outside courtyard at Blanc, weather permitting, and are free and open to the public. Cash bar.
