Uptown Variety Live: The Gift Of Awesomeness

Where in Uptown can you see stand-up comics, a sketch comedy troupe, a burlesque dancer, a live band and more?

The answer is Uptown Variety Live. Headlining earlier this month (returning to The Kinetic stage after Comedy Death Ray Radio with Scott Ackerman, Garfunkel & Oates, and Bob Odenkirk) and returning sometime in 2011, James Adomian from Last Comic Standing left the UV audience in absolute stitches covered in tears.

The last show of this year (Wednesday, December 22) features the comedic talents of Avromi "The Steiner," and Renee Schultz, burlesque dance from the lovely Lula-Houp Garou, Chicago band Flow Theory, and late night Dubstep DJ Sam Gray with your host and creator Nicholas Taylor in conjunction with Chicago comedy troupe Awesomonster!

Bring a crappy, recycled and or self-made gift if you want to be entered for the grand prize of the night.  Doors open at 7:00 with a $7 cover and the festivities begin at 8:00 located in The Kinetic Playground at 1113 W Lawrence.
