Our members perform long form improvisation, stand-up and scripted material at The Comedy Clubhouse in Chicago's Wicker Park. Our comedy club is the highest rated Chicago club on Facebook and Google, a Critic's Pick in PerformInk, a Top 13 Comedy Club in Time Out Chicago, a finalist for Best Venue for Stand-up in the Chicago Reader, and Best Comedy Club Near You in Urban Matters. (Read all the press about us.) Our members receive more performance opportunities than any other institution.
Guiding our members' progress from Apprentice to Artisan, we train improvisers, comics, writers, and creatives across many comedy disciplines. In addition to regular classes or rehearsals with experienced coaches and teachers, we also supplement your education with a private, online Education Resource Center complete with videos and text explanations. We'll even try and throw in workshops from successful artists in the industry whenever they are in town!
We are a membership-based organization that collects dues from its members in exchange for training, performances, perks, resources, and the ability to be compensated for your work. Our list of perks continues to grow rapidly including giving our members 100% of online ticket sales for audiences they bring, the ability to put up your show with no rent and a 50/50 split, free tickets to your shows, and more!
In addition to offering member perks, we do everything we can to invest in our members' careers. We bring in SAG-AFTRA for Q & A's about the industry and have been the host venue for Reductress workshops. We create Showcases for your best work and invest in marketing and invite agents to our Main Stage performances. It is in our best interest to support your drive to success! (We'd like to think we had a small hand in the many successes of some of our alumni.)
