CHICAGO SUMMER IS (kind of) HERE!
So let's get those bodz on a beach and those buns in the sun; it's Strip Joker July time and we are ready to party party party for all bodies!
Strip Joker is Chicago’s body positive stand-up comedy show featuring a diverse line-up of comedians from around the country! In the spirit of inclusivity, vulnerability, and uncensored comedy, Strip Joker highlights the voices of queer and POC comedians, and celebrates ALL bodies as the show’s founding mission since 2016. With a new show each month, you won’t want to miss us every 2nd Saturday in our new home in Mary’s Attic, at 10pm!
This show will feature a whole new roster of our favorite Chicago comedians, hosted by Strip Joker producer, Spencer D Blair!
This show will feature the talents of:
Ruth & Elaine
and headlined by Strip Joker favorite and former producer, Molly Kearney!
Changes in 2019!
As we approach 3 years, we realize Strip Joker has grown, evolved, and is looking to do more good for our community as we move to a new space and reach a wider audience. Now, each Strip Joker show will partner with a local organization to raise awareness and funds; We will have representatives from these organizations tabling at our show, and comedians will perform for ‘tips’ from audience members during their acts to raise money for the local organizations we partner with. (All tips will be donations, comedians and performers will be paid through ticket sales.)
In addition to our dedication to local activism, we also want to give you A PARTY!
After our stand up show, we will have music, a photo-booth, Strip Joker merch, and a featured maker selling their goods in our space while we hang till bar close!
