I hate L.A., or three Chicago comics leave town

It's inevitable. Comics come here (or are from here), hone their skills and then head west in hopes of landing a part on the next According to Jim.

No, I'm not bitter. Really. But with comedians Prescott Tolk and Ken Barnard already in L.A. (or on their way) and Beth Stelling heading out in the next couple of weeks, I am sad that we're losing three of Chicago's funniest people.

I hope they do great. And I know they will. They are all tremendously funny, in very different ways.

Prescott, Ken and Beth were all kind of enough to stop by The Interview Show over the years to do their thing. Hope you enjoy. 


The Interview Show is back at The Hideout tonight (Aug. 5!), so if you're around, come by! 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Guests include Marc Maron, Jon Langford, Lawrence Peters and Jim O'Shea.
