In American culture, it is said, there are only three topics one should never bring up in polite company: Race, Religion, and Politics. WELCOME to IMPOLITE COMPANY. As Americans prepare for a Trump presidency, this surreal cultural and political context was made possible, at least in part, by the social etiquettes of 'politeness.' Many Americans refused to publicly admit who they were planning to vote for before the election, and even after its bizarre and largely unexpected outcome, countless Americans find it impossible to speak honestly with friends and family members with whom they have serious political disagreements. Check out some of the most hilariously insightful satire and biting political standup in Chicago. IMPOLITE COMPANY is held at 8pm, every 2nd Thursday of the month. Age restriction: 18 years and over; 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage).
The INAUGURAL SHOW (just a week before Donald Trump is sworn into office), will include: SAM NO

In American culture, it is said, there are only three topics one should never bring up in polite company: Race, Religion, and Politics. WELCOME to IMPOLITE COMPANY. As Americans prepare for a Trump presidency, this surreal cultural and political context was made possible, at least in part, by the social etiquettes of 'politeness.' Many Americans refused to publicly admit who they were planning to vote for before the election, and even after its bizarre and largely unexpected outcome, countless Americans find it impossible to speak honestly with friends and family members with whom they have serious political disagreements. Check out some of the most hilariously insightful satire and biting political standup in Chicago. IMPOLITE COMPANY is held at 8pm, every 2nd Thursday of the month. Age restriction: 18 years and over; 2 drink minimum per person (can be non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage).
The INAUGURAL SHOW (just a week before Donald Trump is sworn into office), will include: SAM NO

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
