2. Schadenfreude Rent Party

Friday, February 3, 2012, 8:00pm, The BeatKitchen, 773-281-4444

They're back, and better than ever in 2012. The Mayans may think the world is ending, but Schadenfreude still have to pay rent. Save the date now, they will be updating the list of performers as it gets closer. It's cheap, there's a bar, and there will be more than enough guests stars for you to laugh at.

You can't tell me you already have plans for FEBRUARY 3RD.

3. Holy F Comedy Hour
Fridays, Midnight, FREE, The Annoyance, 773-561-HONK (4665).

The "Holy F Comedy Hour" is a curated hour of eclectic, comedic material written in a week with no rehearsals.

This show just got extended.
