Jordan Klepper discusses the Daily Show and his Chicago roots

SHARE Jordan Klepper discusses the Daily Show and his Chicago roots

This time of year in Chicago often brings the best and brightest comics in the country back to Chicago. Why? Mostly because the best and brightest are from here and are home to visit family and friends. But while they're in the neighborhood, they also get a show or two in. The Daily Show's Jordan Klepper called Chicago home for a number of years. Klepper was one of the improvisers behind the wildly popular Late Night Late Show and Whirled News tonight. He also toured with Second City and does shows at UCB in New York. Klepper is back in the city and comes back to Old Town to do stand-up at Zanies.
