TWIX Presents TBS Just for Laughs Chicago is invading our city of big shoulders June 14-19, 2011 and I will be providing coverage with some Let’s Get Serious podcasts and blog posts.
The festival features some super well-known comedians—Louis CK, Steve Martin, Demetri Martin (no relation… that we know of), Joel McHale, Dave Attell and George Lopez—but it also features up-and-comers, lesser-knowns and locals performing more shows than you could possibly attend in six days, including a film series at the Gene Siskel Film Center.
Events officially start on Tuesday, June 14 but Improv Everywhere is doing one of their MP3 Experiments in Millenium Park today at 1:30pm. I’m heading there now!

In the meantime, listen to my interview with Teenager of the Year. They are performing as part of the festival’s Pet Project Series on June 16 at 9:30pm at the Playground Theater.
