Weekly Guide: 'The Interview Show's' Mark Bazer gets Chicago off the couch

Late-night TV offers an easy way into the weekend--stay up a little later, catch up with all the latest celebrity action, whatever. Lucky for Chicagoans,  some of that probing late-night interview style was already in their city--but it requires getting off the couch. The Interview Show is a monthly live event at The Hideout in Chicago. Host Mark Bazer sits down with local celebs and taste makers to find out what makes them tick. Bazer is also one of the WBEZ bloggers. Friday, he joined Eight Forty-Eight as the Weekly Guide.

Bazer's picks include:


He will head over to Sultan's Market for falafel before heading to his second pick.

At 6:30 p.m. he will host The Interview Show at The Hideout. 

Then, he'll be sticking around The Hideout to see the band Baby Teeth perform at 10 p.m.

He is grabbing a bite to eat at The Depot American Diner:

Then at 8 p.m. it's off to the Park West to see Michael Ian Black.
