Beat the heat tomorrow night and come out for Funny Ha-Ha: Hot Stuff

WBEZ brings you fact-based news and information. Sign up for our newsletters to stay up to date on the stories that matter.

Every few months or so I host a literary humor reading series I put together called Funny Ha-Ha that features some of Chicago’s best funny writers, or Chicago’s best writers being funny, or Chicago’s funniest people sharing things they’ve written (I think you get the idea.) There are also short funny films and occasional Powerpoint presentations and songs as well. All this goes down at the legendary Hideout, so Tuesday I encourage you to come out, have a beer, meet some old and new friends and laugh your little tushie off. Here are the details:

Date: Tuesday, August 2, 2011
Time: 7-8:30 PM
Place: The Hideout
1354 W Wabansia Ave
Chicago, IL 60622
(773) 227-4433
