Catharsis Productions presents Social Justice Stand-Up

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness month, Catharsis Productions is excited to join Chicago Comedy legend iO Theater in presenting a night of comedy with a conscience. Vocalo’s own Brian Babylon will be performing along with local favorites Ever Mainard and Gail Stern for a truly unique night of comedy.
Featuring 90 minutes of comedy with a conscience; Social Justice Stand-Up is reclaiming comedy one joke at a time. Catharsis Productions believes that good comedy punches up not down. What does that mean? It means we encourage jokes that make fun of offensive elements of our culture but not victims of that culture. It means that being funny does not have to come at the expense of others, and when done right, can make positive social change.
