Featuring Paul Farahvar and more comedians to be announced!
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? 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 top 40 up and coming comedians in America in 2017 (Good Seats Events) as well as "Top 40 under 40" by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin in 2012, Paul Fara

Voted one of the top 40 up and coming comedians in America in 2017 (Good Seats Events) as well as "Top 40 under 40" by the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin in 2012, Paul Fara
