Everybody thinks they'd make a great lawyer, and you're no different - whether you are scrapping on social media, arguing with your grandfather, or just yelling at the nightly news as you lay in bed slowly dying alone. But opinions are not the law and who better to test these opinions than comedians?
On Sunday, July 30th (7pm), come watch, the new game show Everyone's a Lawyer debuts at the World Famous Laugh Factory Chicago (3175 N Broadway Ave). Three Comedian-contestants are presented with real-life legal scenarios, and present the best (and comical) solutions and answers for their clients.
Complete with opening statements, arguments, closing arguments, and, of course, standup comedy, the audience plays judge and jury to decide the winning "lawyer."
"Everyone's a Lawyer" is the creation of comedian and attorney Paul Farahvar, who has been delighting audiences with his self-deprecating humor with shows like "Drink Date Laugh" and his podcast SINGLES ONLY on iTunes. Voted one of the t

After 5 years, Chicago's premiere Thursday night stand-up showcase has left Wicker Park and taken over The Laugh Factory! We're bringing you the absolute best comedians Chicago has to offer in a brand new setting with that SUSU feel.

Stand Up Stand Up is a unique weekly comedy showcase featuring both local and national stand up comedians and musical acts. In our short time, we've amassed praise from multiple outlets as being one of Chicago's best stand-up showcases. Splitsider hailed us as the best weekly Thursday showcase in the city in 2012, and the Chicago Tribune has written multiple articles detailing the consistent talent on display each week. We take great pride in providing Chicago's thriving comedy scene with the finest lineups, weekly posters, and online content there is.

Winter is coming. Actually, it's early August, so we're pretty much good. But A ROAST IS COMING. This will be your only chance to see Khaleesi, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and more special guests and surprises, all onstage and spitting hot fire like so many dragons. Each character will be played by one of Chicago's best and meanest stand-up comedians.

Character Assassination is a roast show at Chicago's Laugh Factory that puts historical figures and beloved fictional personalities in the hotseat. Stacked against a ruthless panel of their peers, these roasts turn into a battle of the wits limited only by the imagination. Every show features top comedians, writing and performing in character and in costume as a wild roasting dais of popular icons with one goal in mind: to tear each other to shreds. Character Assassination is a sister show of Character Assassination Louisville, and is sponsored by the wonderful Fantasy Costumes.

Afterthoughts is quickly becoming the meanest roast show in Chicago--is it because people have left the show crying? Um, probably. It gets pretty mean.
Here's the deal. Afterthoughts is pretty much a normal stand-up show. But as comedians are performing, fellow comics on the line up get a chance to write mean little jokes about them. And then the host reads all of those mean little jokes out loud. It's a fun way to find out how stupid that shirt looks on you.
Oh, and one (un)lucky audience member will get a chance to be roasted too! Come have a blast with us this Monday. Don't be a bummer.

He has a special on Showtime, won Howard Stern's "Kill or Be Killed" comedy competition, and performs for our troops whenever possible through the Wounded Warrior Project.

Kane's popularity has proven contagious across the country, and has happened mostly via word-of-mouth from a dedicated fan base.

Afterthoughts isn't just the meanest roast show in Chicago, it's also completely anonymous. While the comedians are performing, their friends write mean (and accurate) jokes about them, which are then read aloud to the audience. It gets nasty, and it gets mean--but it's always funny. Join us every first and last Monday of the month to see for yourself.

The Stand Up For Pits Foundation is thrilled to be bringing Stand Up For Pits back to Chicago!

The SUFP Foundation is dedicated to ending abuse, discrimination and saving the lives of pitbull "type" dogs. This "type" of dog based soley on appearance is the target of extreme abuse, bans and has been falsely vilified for over 3 decades. Stand Up For Pits events help us to educate, advocate and save lives. Pitbull type dogs are born inherently good and deserve to be protected, respected and treated with compassion and without prejudice like all life deserves.


These events sell out around the country, save countless lives and continue to raise national and international awareness. We support other pitbull "type" dog rescues around the country. Humane Chicago will be participating this year! They will be bringing available Pibbles for adoption, selling merchandise and will receive 100% of proceeds from the silent auction. Tickets benefit the Stand Up For Pits Foundation.

We are all in

This ain't your grandma's stand up. Forget about cute puns and adorable observations and strap in for a night of in-your-face, no-holds-barred comedy! We compiled the best comics in Chicago, removed their leashes and let them loose...just for you. It may get dark. It may get dirty. It may make you question what's appropriate to laugh at in public. And it absolutely will be a night you will never forget...whether you like it or not!
