Crossbreed Comedy is the show Chicago comedy lovers have been waiting for! One part standup! One part improv! All parts hysterical!

Here's how XBC works: Host Matt Chiaramonte and three of Chicago's funniest comics take the stage to deliver razor-sharp standup comedy. After each set, one of Chicago's funniest improv teams will take the stage and perform long form improv based on the standup set you just saw. At the end, all the comics and improvisers come together on stage and play an improv game. Don't miss it!

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
