Jon Griffin's Hilarity Will Hit Your Ear Tonight Monthly Comedy Showcase

Local Comedian Jon Griffin hosts a night of standup with some of Chicago's up-and-coming comedians.


Matty Ryan is a Chicago classic. Born, bred, and beer-battered in an Irish neighborhood on the city’s South Side, Matty has been touring and performing throughout Chicago and beyond for the past several years. His rapid-fire delivery and deft takes on his burgeoning (and unwanted) adulthood, things he’s learned from the elderly, and the fine art of the outdoor nap have made him a favorite at showcases and clubs throughout the country. An alumnus of the Second City, Matty has appeared at Zanies, The Laugh Factory, The Improv, and the Hollywood Comedy Store. He currently co-produces The Blackout Diaries every Saturday at The Lincoln Lodge, and Parlour Car every Thursday at Bar Deville; both in Chicago. Also, please tell your parents he says hello.

Recently I was called a Fascist. I laughed and replied, "I'm not religious."

Bob Keen

Anyone else find it disturbing that on SpongeBob, the owner of the crab cake stand SpongeBob works at is a crab? I'm waiting for his wife to go missing.

Amy Shanker

Writer, editor, word fancier-upper. Animal lover. Others call her 'slightly amusing.' She prefers 'hilarious.'

Dan Ibarra

Unpaid Stand-Up Comedian, I like writing things that make me laugh first. If I have time, and I'm really bored, maybe I'll think about everybody else.
