Rob Wilson Presents... Your Comedy Show: Wicker Park

Your Comedy Show is all about quality. Everybody has the people and the thing that makes them laugh. Everyone has their own taste. But some people are so funny that nobody can deny it. Those are the only people you'll see at Your Comedy Show. We asked the top comedians in Chicago who it is that they want to see and then we book them for your viewing pleasure. Finally and most importantly we ask you what you want and then we give it to you. It's simple Your Comedy Show is the comedy show for you.

Mike Lebovitz

Mike Lebovitz
began his comedy career at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He's been delighting and confounding audiences ever since with his off-beat yet accessible (!) brand of humor.
His diverse background in acting, directing, writing and improv allows Mike to draw on range of disciplines in constructing his act, which uses subversive turns of phrase and outlandish viewpoints to highlight the inherent absurdity of being. That's the fancy way of saying it; mostly he just makes funny faces at the audience. In fact, it's been said that Lebo has the best eye-work in the business. But it's also been said that the Jews didn't kill Jesus, so who knows...

Let's put it this way: Mike doesn't point out life's little quirks; he rolls around and farts on them! Also, he had no hand in the death of the Christ. Does that make sense? No? But it kind of seemed like it did for a second, right? That's exactly what his act is like! Just check it out, you'll like it. Or maybe you won't, but then everyone will think you are super dumb, so best keep that to yourself, mmmm?
What we can say for sure is that Mike is a member of the popular Chicago-based collective, Comedians You Should Know. He and his good buddy Junior Stopka also co-curate Señorita Weiner's Top Secret Humor Experiment and Ice Cream Social Club, Chicago's longest-running clandestine, nomadic comedy showcase and the original members-only ice cream social. Also too (2!), Mike was featured as a New Face at the 2013 Montreal Comedy Festival. Yay!
Thanks for reading this. Now go fuck yourself. #withmydick

Adam Burke

Originally from the UK, Adam Burke began performing stand-up after writing a piece on comedy for a Chicago magazine. Before long, Burke became a fixture at Midwestern shows and showcases. His absurdist, verbose comedy covers not only the vagaries of life in his adopted hometown of Chicago, but also the usefulness of mammoths, dogs who study law, and the importance of gangland grammar. He has appeared on the Bob and Tom show, WGN 720 AM radio, and the Benson Interruption Podcast, and was listed as one of the Top 20 Comedians in Chicago by Comedy.com. Adam has appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland OR, and as part of the Just for Laughs Chicago festival for three years running. In addition, he has opened for a wide variety of comedians including Jeff Ross, Maria Bamford, Bo Burnham, Brendon Burns, and Jake Johannsen.

Sherman Edwards

SHERMAN EDWARDS was recently named ‘Best Stand Up Comic in Chicago’ by the Chicago Reader and has been lucky enough to perform at the TBS Just for Laughs Festival in Chicago, The Del Close Marathon in New York, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and a few other notable places which has given him his cool, comfortable, laid-back style. Born and raised in Virginia but currently residing in Chicago, he can be found doing stand up, plays, improv and you can currently see him on the new series Single Long airing exclusively on HBO GO. He really likes cheese and hopes you do too. It’s okay if you don’t though. More for him.

Musical Performance by: James "Manny" Manno

James Manno is rocking out in post-Sexual Quesadilla fashion. The Open Mic Night sensation, Sexual Quesadilla, split up over two years ago, but "Fried" is the carnage that was left behind. Manno jacked it up and recorded it.So Enjoy it until he gets more music up on this piece!
